Two big middleweight bouts are set for UFC 234, and the company has released the official poster for its return to Australia in 2019.

Reigning 185-pound champion Robert Whittaker is set to defend his crown against fellow TUF winner Kelvin Gastelum at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia, on Feb. 9.

In the co-main event, middleweight icon Anderson Silva will make his return against rising sensation Israel Adesanya, in what could be a tile eliminator bout for the winner of Whittaker vs. Gastelum.

The event will air live on pay-per-view.
