Robert Whittaker, Kelvin Gastelum, Israel Adesanya, Anderson Silva and president Dana White hit the stage from Melbourne, Australia, for the official press conference of UFC 234. According to White, the co-main event of Adesanya-Silva serves major implications of a No.1 contender position (1:30). Adesanya is appreciative of everything Silva has given to mixed martial arts, and even admits he is the reason why he fights, but would be an honor to knock Silva out of it (4:20). With rumors looming large of the Flyweight division being in jeopardy, White claims the UFC has not made a decision yet and will see how the 135 lb. fight plays out (16:34). Whittaker admits he doesn’t need an any motivation in his title fight, and Gastelum trying to “kill him” is more than enough. Finally, the fighters square up face-to-face to conclude the press conference (28:10).
