Cormier is confident the UFC is working out a Du Plessis vs. Adesanya fight

Daniel Cormier, a former UFC champion in two weight classes, believes the organization is in the process of working out a fight between the promotion's former middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and current middleweight champion Dricus Du Plessis.

"The next middleweight title fight is already set. The UFC already knows that Israel Adesanya will fight Dricus Du Plessis. If it was in question, at least one of these guys, Hamzat or Robert, should have been kept free so there was an opportunity to give him a chance," Cormier said on ESPN.

Recall, there were earlier rumors that a bout between Adesanya and Du Plessis could take place as part of the UFC 300 anniversary event.
