The action unfolds later tonight (Sat., Feb. 9, 2019) at UFC 234 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia, as former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva locks horns with rising phenom Israel Adesanya in the main event.

A middleweight title fight between current champion Robert Whittaker and top contender Kelvin Gastelum was expected to serve as UFC 234’s headliner, but Whittaker was removed from the card with just hours left due to a hernia.
