Israel Adesanya unleashes expletive-laden rant on Dricus du Plessis

The verbal sparring between UFC middleweight champ Israel Adesanya and Dricus du Plessis is heating up, and it seems like there’s no end in sight. Adesanya recently slammed du Plessis for “creating a divide” and went on an expletive-laden rant about him.

Earlier this month during the post-fight press conference at UFC 287, Israel Adesanya didn’t shy away from calling out du Plessis, vowing to “drag his carcass across South Africa” if they ever fought:

The tension between the two fighters stems from du Plessis’ recent comments about the former African champions, which he labeled as “Fake Champions.” In contrast, he touted himself as the only true African who can claim the UFC championship. The claim didn’t sit well with ‘The Last Stylebender’, who sees himself as a proud African and has been a prominent representative of the continent in the UFC.

During a recent Ramble Young Man Ramble podcast, Israel Adesanya took shots at ‘Stillknocks’ and remarked:

“I’m gonna take him to school in octagon and not history because what he’s doing is creating divide you can knowing your history. I have never questioned him as an African because yeah, you were born in South Africa, of course you’re an African.”

The 185-pound kingpin added:

“I’ve never questioned that but who the f*ck is this cracker to tell me, who the f*ck I am, who the f*ck Kamaru [Usman] is, who the f*ck [Francis] Ngannou is? I’m like, are you dumb as a product of colonization you’re trying to tell me who the f*ck I am ? You can take the boy out of Africa but you can never take the Africa out of the boy. I have never did that to him, I never discredited [Dricus du Plessis] as an African.”
