Twitter reacts to Robert Whittaker's stunning withdrawal from UFC 234
The UFC 234 card suffered a devastating blow just hours before the first fight was scheduled to begin when UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker was forced to withdraw from his planned title defense against Kelvin Gastelum.
Whittaker (20-4 MMA, 11-2 UFC) came down with a hernia issue that forced him to be hospitalized. He required surgery, thus erasing any chance of him fighting Gastelum (16-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC) in tonight’s pay-per-view headliner, which takes place at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia.
