Robert Whittaker, Kelvin Gastelum make weight for UFC 234 title bout

Robert Whittaker Kelvin Gasteum UFC 234

"If I'm playing basketball to play against Michael Jordan, this is it for me", Adesanya said after facing one of his idols in Silva.

In fact, Israel Adesanya pressed himself to the mat, so as to cover up the emotion on his face.

Israel Adesanya remains undefeated in mixed martial arts after overcoming his biggest challenge yet.

And Shane Young beat American Austin Arnett by unanimous decision in his featherweight bout. "Well, this is it for me".

As a sign of respect, Adesanya lifted Silva's arm up to the crowd to make sure arguably the greatest UFC fighter in history got the recognition he deserved. When it ended, both moved to the center of the ring and went to their knees and bowed their heads in a show of respect.

Whittaker is a Sydney, Australia native and was a massive favorite in his home country. "It's one of those situations where if it had popped out during the fight it could have been fatal for him". "You only develop these methods through years of hard-fought experience".

After the fight, the 43-year-old Silva said that he hopes to continue his fighting career and is looking to be on the UFC 237 card, which will reportedly take place on May 11 at a 45,000 capacity stadium in his hometown of Curitiba, Brazil.

To find out if your vehicle is being recalled, go to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration website . Already, at least 23 people have been killed in accidents related to the airbags, as hundreds more have been injured.

The bout was essentially a kickboxing match with four-ounce gloves. "Crazy week. I showed up to work, a lot of people didn't even though it's out of their hands". Silva waited patiently for opportunities to counter, but he wasn't able to return to his glory days when he won 16 bouts in a row and was unbeaten for almost a decade.

By the third round, Silva's right eye was swelling but he never was out of the fight.

When that happened, the UFC had no choice but to offer refunds.

The victor was in line to be the next challenger to Whittaker.

6 Degrees Management, who manage Whittaker, released a statement during the event that the middleweight champion required dual surgery for a twisted and collapsed bowel as well as an internal hernia of the intestine. He emerged a few hours later from surgery, but is expected to spend several days recovering in the hospital.

In a statement posted on Facebook, a member of his team wrote, "Last night at roughly 9 p.m., Rob began experiencing intense abdominal pains that were brought to the attention of the UFC doctors".
