Kelvin Gastelum Believes He Is Now The UFC Middleweight Champion

Robert Whittaker Kelvin Gasteum UFC 234

Silva was declared victor by unanimous decision, but that was later overturned after he tested positive for drostanolone and androsterone.

Silva eventually started charging forward more and more as time ticked away on the clock and that's when he managed to tag Adesanya with some stiff shots of his own.

The three-round fight went the distance and Adesanya claimed the win via a unanimous decision 29-28, 30-27, 30-27.

With the original UFC 234 headliner scrapped due to Robert Whittaker's emergency hernia surgery, Israel Adesanya and Anderson Silva took center stage in Melbourne on Saturday night. It's one of those situations, had it popped up during the fight it could have been fatal for him so this is really serious.

It was a mixed day for Australia following Whittaker's withdrawal.

In the final five minutes of the fight, Adesanya surged ahead with a stronger showing on his feet while blasting Silva with several low kicks to the thigh.

He missed the last 15 games and all of the playoffs past year with injuries to his left knee. Gordon Hayward scored 19 points and Jayson Tatum and Terry Rozier had 16 apiece for Boston.

Silva said it was the equivalent of facing Michael Jordan in basketball. It's out of their hands, you know, sometimes it's not in their control.

And during the event, Gastelum arrived carrying a UFC world championship belt and spoke with reporters backstage to declare himself as the new world champion. "Player one has the controller and I showed up".

Adesanya has been chasing a trans-Tasman fight with Whittaker and the Nigerian-born fighter was booed by the Australian crowd when he referenced Whittaker as "not turning up to work". I don't care. Kelvin or Rob, whoever it is I don't care.

Sunday's scheduled clash with American Kelvin Gastelumn at a sold-out Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne was called off in the early hours after Whittaker experienced issues on Saturday evening and subsequently underwent surgery. "They think he's had it for a while and it's been popping in and out", White said of Whittaker.

Gastelum did offer another view of the cancelled fight via social media, leaving a post on Instagram in which he said "God has a reason for doing things and I firmly believe his plans are much bigger and better than I can even imagine". "This is my heart". I continue to fight because this is my home.
