Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is gearing up for the upcoming UFC 234 pay-per-view (PPV) event, going down Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019 inside Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The fight card will air live on Saturday night (Feb. 9) in most markets due to the discrepancy in time zones.
Headlining the “Down Under” extravaganza will be the middleweight title fight between reigning 185-pound titleholder, Robert Whittaker, and top division contender, Kelvin Gastelum, who recently finished their assignments as opposing coaches on season 28 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF).
Now we have an official poster.
Also competing at UFC 234 is red-hot middleweight sensation Israel Adesanya, who will look to continue his march toward the 185-pound crown by locking horns with former division kingpin and one of the greatest strikers the weight class has ever seen, Anderson Silva. They’ve managed to carve out a tiny piece of real estate at the bottom of the poster but you can bet “The Last Stylebender” will be headlining his next card if he can squash “The Spider.”
Stay tuned for more UFC 234 fight card announcements in the coming weeks.
