Robert Whittaker out of UFC 234 title fight with hernia

Robert Whittaker out of UFC 234 title fight with hernia

The main event will feature Robert Whittaker looking for his first title defense (his second fight against Yoel Romero was not a title defense due to Romero missing weight) when he takes on Kelvin Gastelum.

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

ESPN's Ariel Helwani does not paint a pretty picture of what occurred that night, with Whittaker now in surgery. Whittaker is now riding a nine-fight winning streak while being undefeated at middleweight.

Anderson Silva, a former UFC middleweight champion, and rising contender Israel Adesanya have been elevated into the main event role for the night.

The unfortunate turn of events is a huge blow for Whittaker, a New Zealand-born Australian who was set to headline tonight's pay-per-view at Rob Laver Arena in Melbourne.

The Sydney-based star has experienced a horror run of injuries and illness throughout his career, including a gruesome abscess infection which forced him to pull out of UFC 221 in 2018.

Because his next fight against Yael Romero was a non-title bout after Romero missed weight, Whittaker still has yet to officially defend his belt a year into his status as middleweight champ. Lando Vannata and Marcos Mariano's lightweight matchup will also be elevated to co-main status.
