Adesanya Confirms UFC 305 Fight With Du Plessis

Israel Adesanya has said he will fight UFC Middleweight Champion Dricus du Plessis at UFC 305.

The fight will take place at the RAC Arena in Perth, Australia, on August 17. It will be Adesanya’s first bout since losing his middleweight belt to Sean Strickland at UFC 293. Strickland would then lose the title to Du Plessis in his first defense. Izzy and Du Plessis were on course to face each other last year. They faced off after Du Plessis beat Robert Whittaker at UFC 290. But after the Strickland loss, Adesanya revealed he was taking a break from the sport. His intention was to fight for fun and not the belts. However, that has since changed, as both fighters confirmed the bout
