  • Kiwi Israel Adesanya will now be headlining UFC 234 in Melbourne on Sunday against Anderson Silva

American Kevin Gastelum arrived at UFC 234 with the championship belt after the title holder, Australian Robert Whittaker, withdrew from their proposed fight.

In the first round, 29-year-old Adesanya landed several kicks and right hands.

Silva eventually started charging forward more and more as time ticked away on the clock and that's when he managed to tag Adesanya with some stiff shots of his own.

Nigerian-born Auckland-based Adesanya, who has a 16-0 MMA record, added to his growing reputation with a strong victory over Silva.

All three judges awarded the three-round fight to Adesanya: 30-27, 30-27 and 29-28.

There are a total of five fights on the main card.

"If I'm playing basketball this is like playing Michael Jordan", he said. Insane week. I showed up to work, a lot of people didn't. Sometimes it's not in your control. "We'll see how the timing plays. but I'd literally come to Australia every weekend if I could".

Provided Robert Whittaker heals quickly, it sounds as though the UFC's intention is rebook his planned fight with Kelvin Gastelum - perhaps as soon as April.

There was mixed fortunes for Australians Jim Crute and Nadia Kassem, each of who was making their second UFC appearance after a first-up win. I don't care. Kelvin or Rob, whoever it is I don't care.

When asked if the company would return to New Zealand either this year or in 2020, White said the success of the Kiwi athletes made the decision an easy one.

Meanwhile, Silva embraced the crowd following his hard fought loss and stated once again that he's not going anywhere except back to the gym to prepare for his next fight.

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. This is my life.

UFC boss Dana White, who was sitting front-row next to Damon and Hemsworth, later revealed how the Hollywood stars reacted during the brilliant fight.

"I think it's a very interesting fight, because the last fight was a no contest".
