At UFC 234 February 9th in Melbourne, Australia the main event is for the middleweight championship with the champ Robert Whittaker vs #4 contender Kelvin Gastelum. The co main event is another middleweight fight between the #6 contender Israel Adesanya vs Anderson “Spider” Silva.
Whittaker vs Gastelum is a fresh middleweight champion fight and both fighters have great wins in the middleweight division and has the chance to takeover the division for years to come. Then in the co Main we have the fastest rising star in the division in “Style Bender” but he has to fight his idol, the greatest middle fighter the world has ever seen Anderson Silva. Dana White has been on record saying the winner of the Israel vs Anderson will get the next title shot. So why don’t the UFC name this 4 man dance, a tournament, Grand Prix, series I don’t know something!! I believe the UFC could market these 4 great fighters with 3 possible tremendous match ups in a way that has never been done before. You have the champ, the hard working challenger, the flashy up start & the greatest of all time, Dana White could have named this 4 way Championship gauntlet and made this the highlight of 2019 for all MMA fans worldwide. Let’s all hope the UFC gods watch over these 4 amazing fighters & keep them healthy and without drama because it would be Bananas to see who comes out the new UFC Middleweight Champion!
