Robert Whittaker Injured, Out of UFC 234!


According to UFC President Dana White, UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker is out of his bout with Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 234. The previous co-main event, Israel Adesanya vs. Anderson Silva, is now the main event. Whittaker reportedly suffered a hernia and there is no timetable for his return as of this time. The fights at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia will move forward on pay-per-view, but this is a major setback for Whittaker, the organization and perhaps the middleweight division. One has to at least anticipate the inclusion of a middleweight interim belt being created.
