Anderson Silva had flashes of brilliance throughtout the fight, but Israel Adesanya always remained calm and continued to outpoint Silva for the better portion of the fight. The judges' scores at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia were 29-28, 30-27, and 30-27 in favor of the Auckland resident by way of Nigeria.

Earlier this week, White had said the winners of the Whittaker-Gastelum and Adesanya-Silva fights would meet later this year.

Gastelum was set to face UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker in the card's main event Sunday (Australian time).

Israel Adesanya remains undefeated in mixed martial arts after overcoming his biggest challenge yet.

In the first round, 29-year-old Adesanya landed several kicks and right hands.

The crowd began chanting Silva's name as the third round began, but it wasn't enough to get him over the line. When it ended, both moved to the center of the ring and went to their knees and bowed their heads in a show of respect. It's one of those situations, had it popped up during the fight it could have been fatal for him so this is really serious.

"Rob said he was a bit bloated and a little bit exhausted which is not uncommon when your are going through the process they are going through, reloading and putting some food back in your body", Day told AAP. Phenomenal performance. The crafty veteran.

A Silva-McGregor fight is highly unlikely to happen, though. "I love my job", Silva said at ringside during the presentations.

The bout was essentially a kickboxing match with four-ounce gloves.

Adesanya, of Nigeria, refused to fall into Silva's traps. Adesanya showed great respect for Silva's counters and never fully opened up. I had to get emergency surgery on Sunday because I had a collapsed bowel and an internal hernia that was causing me all sorts of problems. UFC has offered full refunds due to the cancellation of the main bout.

Earlier in the week UFC President Dana White confirmed that the victor of the bout would be next in line for a middleweight title shot, however with Whittaker's withdrawal, Adesanya will likely have to wait for the dust to settle between Gastelum and Whittaker.
