"I earned this", Gastelum said.

Kelvin Gastelum, with a title belt draped over his shoulder, called himself "the champ" when speaking with media at UFC 234 on Sunday in Melbourne, Australia.

Israel Adesanya has beaten UFC legend Anderson Silva.

After the fight, Silva was heard saying to Adesanya: "I pass the baton onto you". "Well, this is it for me".

While Adesanya was able to control the range and the distance with his size and reach advantage, Silva refused to back down even after he was tagged with a couple of stinging punches during the first few exchanges. When it ended, both moved to the center of the ring and went to their knees and bowed their heads in a show of respect.

Late in the first round, Adesanya turned the tables on Silva by showcasing a flashy array of strikes and then putting one hand behind his back and inviting the former champion to come after him like he was Neo in "The Matrix".

Combined with fellow Kiwis Dan Hooker and Luke Jumeau, New Zealand's UFC fighters posted a 12-1 record over the past 12 months, catching the eye of their boss. "You only develop these methods through years of hard-fought experience. Big respect always. It would be an honor". Conor McGregor who was watching from afar was impelled to pay his regards to Silva, whilst requesting a "passing of the guard" moment all their own.

After the fight, the 43-year-old Silva said that he hopes to continue his fighting career and is looking to be on the UFC 237 card, which will reportedly take place on May 11 at a 45,000 capacity stadium in his hometown of Curitiba, Brazil. Adesanya had the faster hands and was consistently getting home, though he wasn't punching in combination.

The crowd began chanting Silva's name as the third round began, but it wasn't enough to get him over the line.

UFC has offered full refunds due to the cancellation of the bout.

In a later statement, UFC said Whittaker had undergone emergency surgery due to a "severe abdominal injury". "After several hours of observation he was admitted to the hospital at 3 a.m. Rob is just out of dual surgery for a twisted and collapsed bowel in addition an internal hernia of the intestine and will be recovering in the hospital for several days".
