UFC 234 Card Finalized
As the UFC heads into their first event of 2019 with UFC on ESPN+ 1, the card for their February return to Pay-Per-View has been finalized.
The UFC brings Robert Whittaker home to his adopted nation of Australia, as he defends the middleweight title against Kelvin Gastelum in the event’s top fight.
Joining them as the co-main event is the return of Anderson Silva, as he fights for the first time since a suspension for tainted supplements against rising star Israel Adesanya.
Adesanya was last seen at UFC 230 stopping Derek Brunson with an impressive first round TKO, as he looks to continue his ascension to superstar status against Silva, who beat Brunson in his last fight at UFC 208 in 2017.
