The animosity between Adesanya and Du Plessis began with comments made by the latter in 2023. Du Plessis, also known as ‘Stillknocks,’ argued that fighters like Adesanya, Kamaru Usman, and Francis Ngannou shouldn’t be considered “African champions” since they train and live elsewhere. Adesanya took offense, believing that Du Plessis was downplaying their achievements.

Israel Adesanya Opens up on Dricus Du Plessis

In a recent UFC 305 press conference, Israel  Adesanya criticized Du Plessis’ stance, saying, “He tried to discredit the three kings and say that he is the real true African Champion. It’s a weird mindset, bro. He came into the UFC, and I knew who he was a little bit. But I didn’t go over the f*** this fake dude coming in. I’ll finish it.”

Du Plessis, however, maintained that he wasn’t disrespectful, merely “stating facts.” He clarified, “I reside in South Africa. I train there. I want this belt from South Africa. I didn’t try anywhere else. So, never discredited anybody.”

While tensions flare between the middleweight combatants, Dricus du Plessis sees his upcoming fight with Israel Adesanya as a chance to solidify himself among the UFC middleweight division’s all-time greats. Israel Adesanya, a former champion himself, boasts a decorated career within the weight class.

Du Plessis acknowledges this but emphasizes the fight’s significance for his own legacy: “I’m fighting against arguably one of the greatest middleweights ever, and I have to go out there and prove that I am that guy.”

The clash between these two fighters promises fireworks, both inside and outside the octagon. As the UFC 305 date approaches, fans eagerly await the showdown between Adesanya and Du Plessis, fueled by pride, passion, and a desire to etch their names in MMA history.
