  • Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone Offers To Step In And Save The UFC 234 Main Headliner Bout

The news, in which Whittaker reportedly suffered a hernia, initially came via ESPN's Brett Okamoto.

Slated to headline UFC 234 against American Kelvin Gastelum at Rod Laver Arena on Sunday, Whittaker was instead rushed to hospital around 2am Sunday morning with a suspected hernia.

Whittaker will undergo surgery Saturday, UFC president Dana White confirmed to Okamoto. The issue is not believed to be related to his weight cut.

The scheduled UFC 234 co-main event, featuring Anderson Silva and Israel Adesanya, is now the new main event, per Mike Bohn of MMAJunkie.




The cancellation of the bout poses the question of whether or not Gastelum will get the first shot at Whittaker's belt when he returns from injury, with the victor of the fight between Adesanya and Silva guaranteed a title shot.

UFC 234 has been plunged into turmoil by Robert Whittaker's injury exit on Saturday night.

Ironically, injury also forced Whittaker out of his last scheduled title defence in Australia, a UFC 221 clash with Luke Rockhold in Perth.

Ahead of Saturdays' much-anticipated Middleweight bout, the fighters held open workouts for the media, which paved the way for Adesanya to break out a Stone Cold Stunner as well as a Rock Bottom and People's Elbow, sprinkled with a little bit of Ric Flair swagger and a Booker T spinaroonie. Now, Adesanya gets the biggest fight of his career thanks to a UFC card being suddenly Whittaker-less again.
