  • He expresses his confidence in coming out on top and proving himself as the heavyweight champ

Whilst UFC 290 featured some fight of the year contenders on the card, if there is one man that stole the show it was Dricus Du Plessis .

Heavily discounted by many going into his fight with the consensus second best middleweight on the planet, Robert Whittaker, the South African proved that he belongs at the top of the division. Whittaker has only ever lost at middleweight to the champ Israel Adesanya but Du Plessis executed a flawless performance en route to a second round TKO finish.

Throughout International Fight Week, the South African remained confident when questioned about the fight, promising to bring up receipts on social media after his win.

Following the main event of the evening, UFC commentators Joe Rogan and Daniel Cormier reflected on the fights with Rogan having a similar view of the middleweight title eliminator as everyone sat at home or in attendance.

"I mean, what a tremendous performance against a guy in Robert Whittaker who was thought to be the number two guy in the division. I mean outside of Alex Pereira, because Pereira has moved up to 205, Whittaker was the man and the way Dricus Du Plessis beat him up, broke him down and beat him up, and he looked massive inside of there, he looked so strong and durable."

Daniel Cormier And Joe Rogan Put Israel Adesanya’s Confrontation With Du Plessis Down To Alcohol

After the fight, Israel Adesanya joined Dricus Du Plessis in the Octagon for a stare down that everyone knew would be full of tension.

The two men have been embroiled in a war of words ahead of this fight after Du Plessis got under the champ’s skin with his comment about being the first African fighter to win a world championship.

What followed was a slightly off-putting exchange between the two that let everyone know that the build-up to their fight is going to be one filled with tense, racially-charged moments.

Rogan and Cormier put this down to the fact that Adesanya had been having a good time, supporting his teammates Dan Hooker and Alexander Volkanovski in their fights,

"And this dude is not afraid of Adesanya, Adesanya was on some weird stuff tonight, screaming at him, yelling at him." Cormier laughed. Rogan replied "Ahh I think he was drunk"

Jorge Masvidal Picks Between Two Bitter Rivals In Leon Edwards vs Colby Covington

After announcing his retirement from MMA after his loss to Gilbert Burns, it looks like two of Jorge Masivdal’s biggest rivals will fight each other with the UFC welterweight title on the line.

Having tension with both the champion Leon Edwards after their encounter backstage in London back in 2019 and his long-running feud with Colby Covington after their close friendship broke down, it’s no surprise that "Gamebred" has got some opinions on their yet to be announced clash.

At the previous Gamebred Boxing event, Masvidal was asked about his opinions on the fight and whilst he isn’t a big fan of both, he is clearly rooting for the champ to defend his title which is hardly surprising given the highly personal nature of the bad blood between him and Covington.

"I hope Leon fing leaves him in a stretcher, just fing beats the f***ing dog breaks out of him,. Colby’s old too now he might not be able to keep that pace up, Leon’s looking really good at being a scramble, get up to his feet and start the fight again and I just feel that Colby is a couple notches above Usman in the grappling department if he’s on top of somebody. Just being real sticky and holding somebody and not letting go so, Leon I think with some improvements in the wrestling department then he could get it back to his real estate which is fighting on the feet, I think he could pull it off man, I’m hoping he pulls it off but it’s going to be one of his tougher fights."

Stipe Miocic Speaks On Jon Jones Title Fight, Predicts ‘Fireworks’ At UFC 295

When Jon Jones returned after a three-year absence to defeat Ciryl Gane and win the vacant UFC heavyweight world championship, "Bones" had one name in mind for his next fight. Looking to add a win over the greatest heavyweight the UFC has ever seen to his legendary career, Jones called out former champ Stipe Miocic and for a while, despite everyone being hyped up by the prospect of the fight, talks went silent. Ahead of UFC 290 on International Fight Week, UFC President Dana White confirmed that the fight will take place at UFC 295 on November 11 as the main event at Madison Square Garden.

Whilst in attendance for this past weekends stellar PPV card, Miocic spoke about his thoughts on the fight during an interview with Megan Olivi for ESPN MMA.

"November 11, I’ve been waiting for this day. It’s the fight I want, it’s the fight he wants, there’s nothing better," Miocic said. "I’m ready. I’m really excited. I can’t wait for November 11, I hope it gets here faster.

"I think that it’s just the two styles (that makes the matchup) exciting. Styles make matchups, and I think we have two great styles to make electricity, a lot of fireworks. I think it’s going to be an absolutely amazing fight," Miocic continued. "I’m gonna come out on top and show a lot of people that I deserve to be the heavyweight champ."
