A non-title middleweight bout between rising star Israel Adesanya (15-0) and Anderson Silva (34-8) will now headline UFC 234, which sold out in minutes when tickets first went on sale. No, it wasn't the man he defeated twice before.
"It was just like fighting anyone else, but there were certain things that he was doing that I have seen so many times, that he has caught other people with, like with his hands down, the bounce, calling me on to the cage with his back against the fence, but not me", Adesanya said.
Entering the fight, fans and pundits alike considered Adesanya to be a better version of Silva due to some similarities in their fighting style.
"They were still trying to give me positive reinforcements until they said 'Rob, you need to go to hospital, you're throwing up all your rehydration'".
The respect Adesanya had for Silva was evident from the moment the fight began.
Whittaker is expected to be out of action for around four to six weeks as he recovers from his surgery and although there's no fight plan now in place, White has ruled out the possibility of him being stripped of his belt.
In an evenly matched fight over the first two rounds, Adesayna landed the first blow - an outside kick to Silva's leg - then followed it up with a kick to his opponent's right thigh, but Silva fought back with two shots to Adesayna's chin.
There are a total of five fights on the main card.
