Middle-weight champion Robert Whittaker has been pulled from the UFC 2 3 4 main-event opposite Kelvin Gastelum on hours’ notice on Saturday, undergoing operation after managing a stomach overnight. Despite the pain, he had been willing to experience the struggle.
“the UFC had abdominal pain and finally took to the hospital him in 1am and tried everything to remain in the struggle, refusing any treatment that will force him out of this struggle,” MMA Fighting was told by Prates. “He also underwent emergency operation at 4:30’m due. ”
