  • Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone Offers To Step In And Save The UFC 234 Main Headliner Bout

UFC 234 was an attractive even with Whittaker facing Kelvin Gastelum for the middleweight title and Adesanya/Silva vying for the right to fight the victor, but Whittaker's exit has turned the event on its head.

ESPN reporter Brett Okamoto said that White told him the hernia was in no way weight cut related.

The scheduled UFC 234 co-main event, featuring Anderson Silva and Israel Adesanya, is now the new main event, per Mike Bohn of MMAJunkie. The bout will determine the next contender to the title, likely after Whittaker defends vs. Gastelum. A lightweight clash between Lando Vannata and Marcos Rosa Mariano that was originally scheduled for the Fight Pass prelims has been moved to the pay-per-view lineup.

Shortly after acknowledging the news Donald Cerrone happens to be in Australia extended his offer to replace Whittaker to UFC president Dana White.

Ariana Grande Refuses To Perform And Attend GRAMMYs After Disagreement With Producers
However, Variety have now reported that the singer felt " insulted " after producers refused to let her perform certain songs. The Grammy Awards will air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 10 at 8 p.m.

The event is going down on February 10, 2019 at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia.

Those plans will now be delayed, given Gastelum is next in line for a title shot before the victor of the Adesanya-Silva showdown.

Adesanya is undefeated from 15 fights in mixed martial arts, and won his first four fights in the UFC previous year, including three victories that were adjudged performance of the night.
