Israel Adesanya Hits Back At Dricus Du Plessis

Israel Adesanya has hit back at Dricus du Plessis following their recent face-off at UFC 290.

Du Plessis had just beaten Robert Whittaker to secure a second-round stoppage win. Thereafter, the attention turned towards Adesanya.

The two fighters do have some history after Du Plessis claimed that he would be the first person to bring a world title back to Africa.

And in doing so, he hit out at Adesanya and Francis Ngannou. But given that Adesanya had beaten Alex Pereira via a second-round TKO, the attention turned towards a bout with Du Plessis.
