However let’s be trustworthy: I used to be a bit dissatisfied that battle didn’t occur. (I’m) not that shocked, to be trustworthy. I didn’t count on it, however you type of must at this stage – count on one thing to occur. I’m feeling sorry for the man. I do know what it looks like.”

Persevering with ‘Stillknocks’ mentioned (h/t MMAJunkie):

“I’ve been on that aspect of the world of not having the ability to battle and it sucks. Proper now, it simply doesn’t even make sense to speak about it. , (Khamzat Chimaev) hasn’t fought one single ranked middleweight – not one – and to even put him in that dialog proper now looks as if we’re losing time speaking about it. He’s not within the run, and up till he proves that he deserves to be in that run, there’s no use in speaking about it.”

Present UFC middleweight champion Du Plessis is ready to make his first protection on the UFC 305 headliner on Saturday, August seventeenth on the RAC Enviornment in Perth Australia when he takes on former champion Israel Adesanya (24-3 MMA).
