In recent interviews, du Plessis has mentioned the possibility of fighting Adesanya at UFC 305. The two have been engaged in a heated feud for the better part of the past two years, with the rivals facing off with one another inside the octagon after du Plessis scored an important win over former champion Robert Whittaker at UFC 290 in July 2023.

The stars have not aligned for the two to meet in the cage just yet, with Adesanya instead going on to lose the middleweight title to Sean Strickland, and Strickland later losing the title to du Plessis. Adesanya announced he would take a hiatus from competition following his loss to Strickland and now seems set on returning less than a year after he last fought.

UPDATE: UFC CEO Dana White laughed after hearing Adesanya announcing his own fight but confirmed the matchup is now official for UFC 305 in Australia.
