Izrael Adesanya (16-0) had probably one of the greatest nights of his life on UFC 234. The Nigerian won bout with Anderson Silva (34-9).
UFC middleweight champion – Robert Whittaker, was going to lay his hands on the big money. He was in the headliner, considering he has pay-per-view points in his contract.
After the injury of Robert, “Adesanya vs Silva” show moved on top.
“The pay-per-view points, where do they go? What happens to them? I’m just wondering. Maybe I’ll have to sit down with Dana and make him talk because that’s a lot of money being left on the table and it stays in the hands of the dealer when I’ve done my bit. I showed up to work. Unfortunately, it was out of Rob’s hand. It wasn’t in his control”, says fighter for bloodyelbow.

“The controller was in Player One’s hands. I showed up to work today. I clocked in. I came early to watch them do battle and I stayed late so I can do all this stuff, as well.”
“I’m working my ass off. I feel like, man, I don’t know what the buyrates are because it wasn’t really my main event. It wasn’t really my show. They put me in the regular hotel. I didn’t get the main event suite either. But the pay-per-view points I’m looking like, what happens to them? Maybe me and Anderson can split those because we got ‘Fight of the Night’ and that’s a lot of money being left on the table. We’ll see what happens with that.”
