Whittaker hospitalised in UFC 234 disaster


//

Robert Whittaker is out of his UFC 234 middleweight title defence against Kelvin Gastelum in Melbourne.

The Australian star reportedly fell ill on Saturday night and will have surgery on a hernia on Sunday after being hospitalised.

Gastelum will not remain on the card, with Israel Adesanya vs Anderson Silva elevated to the main event slot.

It is unclear how long Whittaker will be inactive, but Gastelum's manager Ali Abdelaziz has said that he would like his fighter to face the winner of Adesanya vs Silva.

Whittaker, 28, has had a wretched run trying to defend his title on home soil, having also missed a clash against Luke Rockhold at UFC 221 last February due to serious illness.
