The UFC will travel to the land down under this Saturday night, as UFC 234 will take place from the Rod Laver Arena in the City of Melbourne, Australia.

The action will get started with three fights on the early prelims at 6:30 p.m. ET via UFC Fight Pass. Four more fights will take place on ESPN at 8:00 before the event’s five-fight main card gets going on Pay-Per-View at 10:00.

The main event features a battle for the middleweight title. Undisputed 185-pound champion Robert Whittaker will defend his belt against fop-contender Kelvin Gastelum.

The co-main event would be worthy to headline most shows, as former champion Anderson Silva will face off against Isreal Adesanya, who is also known as “The Last Stylebender” and is undefeated in 15 professional MMA fights. Silva, one of the sport’s potential GOATs, is positioned to fight as the biggest underdog of his career.

Be sure to check back here later in the week for betting breakdowns for the event’s featured fights.

You can find personal attributes and metrics for each fighter in the table below. All statistics are courtesy of UFC.com along with FightMetric.com.

Each fighter’s official weight will be added on Friday.
