    The MW fight between Adesanya and Silva is being called an eliminator.

    The UFC is hoping for a Whittaker/Adesanya title fight in a stadium in Auckland, I bet.

    UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittakerwas forced to undergo “emergency surgery” in the immediate aftermath of his sudden withdrawal from the UFC 234 main event.

    Whittaker (20-4 MMA, 11-2 UFC) came down with a “severe abdominal injury,” according to UFC officials, and was deemed unable to compete in tonight’s title-fight headliner against Kelvin Gastelum (16-3 MMA, 11-2 UFC). The champ was pushed into surgery shortly thereafter.


    How does this happen? Just a freak thing?

    That was a great and unique and frustrating fight.

    If it's Silva's last- how appropriate.
