Undefeated middle-weight Israel Adesanya stepped into the main event spotlight and claimed the biggest scalp of his mixed martial arts career with a unanimous decision victory over Anderson Silva at UFC 234.
"This is like for a kid just to play, if I'm playing basketball, to play against Michael Jordan".
Whittaker was forced out of his UFC 234 main event bout opposite Kelvin Gastelum after requiring urgent surgery on Sunday morning.
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.
Israel Adesanya rattles the jaw of Anderson Silva with a right hand strike. Light heavyweight Jimmy Crute scored a controversial TKO win against American Sam Alvey, despite Alvey furiously protesting the referee's decision to end the fight early as he insisted his thumbs were up while Crute was ground-and-pounding him. Every time Silva managed to force Adesanya to back up, he did his best work in the fight.
But a patient Adesanya, who like his opponent, also displayed some showboating, dominated the third, peppering the Brazilian's face with punches as the veteran sometimes held his hands low. In my world, if the guy shows up and makes weight, and for some reason (the other guy) cancels, I win.
But he drew boos from the crowd with what seemed to be a swipe at Whittaker.
"Hopefully Rob heals up great".

In his post-fight interview, Adesanya said fighting Silva was like fighting his idol. "This is my heart". I continue to fight because this is my home. "But Israel went in with a sold-out house tonight and a lot of pressure on him..."
