Australia's middleweight champion Whittaker (20-4) was scheduled to defend his belt on home soil at Rod Laver Arena against Kelvin Gastelum (15-3, 1nc). That would have been Whittaker's first bout since being named middleweight champion following Georges St Pierre's surrendering of the title.

Per Okamoto, the hernia was not related to Whittaker's weight cut.

He is a heavy favorite going up against the 43-year old Silva, who has not fought in two years, and a victory should catapult the entertaining Style Bender into the main event scene.

The new co-main is the lightweight matchup between Lando Vannata and Marcos Mariano.

UFC legend Anderson Silva broke down in tears as he prepares to make his long-awaited return at UFC 234 in Australia.

ESPN's Brett Okamoto reported the news, citing UFC chief Dana White.
