Adesanya has no interest in a fifth fight with Pereira
April 13, 2024, 8:44 a.m.

Former UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya explained why he is not eager to hold another fight with the current titleholder Alex Pereira.

Recall, previously the Brazilian and the Nigerian crossed paths four times: two fights in kickboxing remained for Pereira, and in MMA the score is equal - 1:1.

"I know I only have a few fights left in my career. So imagine if I beat Pereira again, what are they going to say? That the score is 3-2 in his favor, let's make the series to four wins. Why would I do that?

You can see why he wants me back. He needs a fight with me. You know why I didn't call him out? Because I don't need to. Deep down inside they know I feel better than them in this situation, I sit back and enjoy myself. I did what I had to do, the saga is over. I have other opponents I would like to get revenge on later," Adesanya said on The MMA Hour show.

Du Plessis: "The decision to back out of the fight at UFC 300 was hard for me."
April 10, 2024, 6:47 p.m.

UFC middleweight champion Dricus Du Plessis revealed why he couldn't accept an offer to fight former titleholder Israel Adesanya at the UFC 300 anniversary event.

"Once you become a champion, then you no longer have to risk your health and take fights with short notice. Since it's not an opportunity for you to get something worthwhile, it's a chance for a challenger to become champion. I turned down a fight with Izzy that was supposed to take place at UFC 300. That decision was a tough one for me because it's a unique privilege to be headlining such a tournament.

It's worth clarifying one point. Izzy says he got a call offering to fight me at UFC 300, but that's not true. You will be offered a fight with me when I want it," Low Kick MMA quoted Du Plessis as saying.

It was previously reported that Du Plessis and Adesanya could headline the UFC 305 show scheduled for August 18 in Perth, Australia.
