In preparation for the first defense of the middleweight title (up to 83,9kg.), Dricus Du Plessis is determined to take advantage of Adesanya's return to the Octagon as his ally. Willing to 'bring chaos' against his rival, the South African believes that the sabbatical period taken by the challenger could be a favorable point for his style and performances during clashes. Duel takes place on August 17, at UFC 305.

“Time off is not necessarily the problem; It can be good, but it can be bad. When you get to the position where you're so comfortable, where he said he's at peace, he's happy with what he has, and it's a dangerous place to be, because this sport is chaos and chaos is exactly the opposite of peace. If you are at peace and enter the octagon with me, it will be a problem, because I bring chaos,” said Du Plessis during an interview with Hello Sport.
