Where is UFC 234: Whittaker v Gastelum?
Australia is a favourite destination for the UFC, with a host of epic cards taking place down under over the years.
After injury and illness prevented Whittaker fighting at UFC 221 in Perth in February 2018, president Dana White committed to bringing the promotion back with another pay-per-view before too long.
The UFC finally confirmed in early November that 234 would take place at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, and White said he “can’t wait.”
Heavyweights Greg Hardy vs Allen Crowder will co-headline the event. Popular fighters like Joseph Benavidez will also be back against Dustin Ortiz, Paige VanZant against Ostovich, Glover Teixeira against Roberson, and Cerrone against Hernandez.
The team, who had been booked to headliner UFC 233 on Jan. 26 at Anaheim’s Honda Center with Cejudo’s 125-pound title in question, will rather battle on UFC’s ESPN make a big appearance on Jan. 19 at the Barclays Center in the New York City ward of Brooklyn, as indicated by the UFC. ESPN was first to break the news.
Dillashaw (16-3), a Northern California local who presently bases his camp in Orange County, and Cejudo (13-2), a Los Angeles local, were a piece of a 1-2 combo which was a film industry hit at UFC 227. The occasion at Staples Center in downtown LA drew a sellout horde of 17,794 paying $2.85M as Dillashaw thumped out Cody Garbrandt in the headliner to hold his title; and Cejudo edged Demetrious Johnson in a split-choice spine chiller to guarantee the flyweight title in a session generally considered the best flyweight matchup in MMA history.
