Whittaker: Du Plessis can beat Adesanya

Former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker discussed the topic of a potential fight between the current title holder Dricus Du Plessis And Israel Adesanya.

“Du Plessis is strong. A very tough and damn inconvenient opponent. Besides, he always has a fighting spirit. He always applies pressure, wants to win and has his opponent going after him. He was the underdog in the fight with Sean, and look what happened.

Perhaps Drikus will be able to seize the initiative in the fight with Adesanya. It can make combat awkward, messy, and chaotic. So he can win this way,” the Australian said in an interview with Submision Radio.

Let us remind you that on February 17 at the UFC 298 tournament in Anaheim, USA, Whittaker will share the Octagon with Paulo Costa.
