Israel Adesanya Emulates The Rock, Stone Cold At UFC 234 Workout

Israel Adesanya Emulates The Rock, Stone Cold At UFC 234 Workout

Whittaker, 28, was forced to pull out of a title defense in February 2018 as a result of injury - representatives for Whittaker have not responded to requests for comment.

Taking its place at the top of the bill will be the former co-main event between Kiwi phenom Israel Adesanya and Brazilian legend Anderson Silva.

Kelvin Gastelum is trying to put a positive spin on losing his chance to fight for the middleweight title at UFC 234.

The New Zealand-born Australian was due to headline his home event at Rod Laver Arena on Sunday (03:00 GMT).

Gastelum's manager, Ali Abdelaziz, appeared on ESPN Radio following the news of Whittaker's withdrawal and said he believes his client will be compensated by the UFC brass.

76ers coach Brett Brown sad about Fultz trade
The 76ers moved on from the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft on Thursday when they traded Markelle Fultz to the Magic . And I was pleased for him that he had a new start, a fresh start, another opportunity".

"He was taken to hospital and diagnosed with a hernia", ESPN reporter Brett Okamoto revealed.

The hype surrounding the Adesanya-Silva fight has been arguably just as big as the Whittaker-Gastelum showdown, if not bigger.

He is a heavy favorite going up against the 43-year old Silva, who has not fought in two years, and a victory should catapult the entertaining Style Bender into the main event scene.

Adesanya is undefeated from 15 fights in mixed martial arts, and won his first four fights in the UFC a year ago, including three victories that were adjudged performance of the night.
