Kelvin Gastelum Believes He Is Now The UFC Middleweight Champion

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. The expectation going into the fight was it should be relatively easy for someone like Adesanya to finish Silva, but that didn't happen. Apparently, he wanted to fight, but a blow to the midsection was potentially fatal.

Kelvin Gastelum didn't get the opportunity to become UFC middleweight champion Saturday night at UFC 234, but that didn't stop him from securing a title belt.

Israel Adesanya had the torched passed to him from a legend while putting on a show in the impromptu UFC 234 main event on Saturday night.

The most risky moment for Adesanya came in the third round, when Silva launched into a flying knee attempt.

The judges have scored the three-round middleweight fight 29-28, 30-27, 30-27 in favour of the man known as "The Last Style Bender".

"This is like, if I'm playing basketball, to play against Michael Jordan".

"You know the answer to that". In my world, if the guy shows up and makes weight, and for some reason (the other guy) cancels, I win.

Earlier in the week UFC President Dana White confirmed that the victor of the bout would be next in line for a middleweight title shot, however with Whittaker's withdrawal, Adesanya will likely have to wait for the dust to settle between Gastelum and Whittaker.

As the punches and kicks continued to fly, Adesanya was just racking up far more significant strikes landed but Silva never went away and continued to throw counter shots until the final horn sounded.

"Rob heal up quick, Kelvin put that belt down, seriously", Adesanya said with a laugh from the crowd.

Kiwi-born Australian Robert Whittaker has reportedly pulled out of this afternoon's UFC 234 in Melbourne, hampered again by injuries. And although the Brazilian fought back with a couple of punches to Adesanya's chin, the Kiwi won the first round. This is my life.

Whittaker started vomiting soon after the abdominal pain began but refused to go to hospital until 3am on Sunday.
