At UFC 234 the main event fight between Robert Whittaker (Champion) vs Kelvin Gastelum was canceled the day of the event. The Co Main Event Fight Israel Adesanya vs Anderson Silva was thrust into the main event spot, with Dana White announcing this is the #1 contender match. Israel defeating his idol Anderson Silva by unanimous decision. Well, Dana White was not lieing. Less than 20 days later he announced that Robert Whittaker is still on the shelf and we have a intern middleweight championship fight at UFC 236 between Style Bender and Gastelum.
The fight has been just announced and the masses has already declared the middleweight division the Style Bender era! Kelvin Gastelum was the #1 contender for a reason, big time wins, wrestler with big power but, his best quality is his competitive streak. Kelvin will push the pace and fight his tail off to beat anyone in front of him. Style Bender is maybe the UFC’s hottest rising star, his nick name, fight style and maybe just fresh blood in the division has UFC fans ready to crown him. Israel Adesanya Title opportunity mirrors what happened to Jon “Bones” Jones years ago. This unbelievable striker moving up the divisions ladder and to get a title shot quickly after his last fight. Dana White is a smart business man, he doesn’t want to waste anymore Israel fights if its not for the middleweight gold! UFC 236 has a main event, UFC has a middleweight title fight, UFC 236 will be Bananas!
