Israel Adesanya vows 'to f***ing beat rival Du Plessis til he's black' in X-rated attack as African UFC feud escalates | The Sun


ISRAEL ADESANYA has vowed to leave Dricus du Plessis "black" and blue after he finally gets his hands on him.

The defending middleweight champion has found himself embroiled in a feud with 'Stillknocks' after the South African declared himself the UFC's "real African fighter".

Nigerian-born New Zealander Adesanya took umbrage at Du Plessis' statement – in which he suggested the belts won by The Last Stylebender, Kamaru Usman and Francis Ngannou didn't go back to Africa.

Fan favourite Adesanya revealed his fury at the former EFC two-division champ in the aftermath of his knockout victory over Alex Pereira earlier this month.

And he doubled down on his desire to brutalise the 29-year-old in a Battle of Africa in a post-fight review on his YouTube channel.

The 33-year-old told brother David: “I’m going to f***ing take him to school in the octagon and on history. What he’s doing is creating divide.

“You can’t know your history – I have never questioned him as an African because, yeah, you were born in Africa, South Africa, of course, you’re an African.

"I’ve never questioned that.

"But who the f**k is this c*****r to tell me who the f**k I am, who the f**k Kamaru is, who the f**k Ngannou is. I’m like, ‘Are you dumb?’"

Adesanya was quick to point out the apartheid past South Africa – which officially ended three months after Du Plessis, 29, was born.

He continued: " As a product of colonization, you’re trying to tell me who the f**k I am.

"You could take the boy out of Africa, but you could never take the Africa out of the boy.

“I never did that to him. I never, ever discredited him as an African.

"OK, you are. Cool. You want to make a fight? Cool.

"But the fact that, as a f***ing c*****r to tell me who the f**k I am, that pissed me off.

"And that’s why he’s my next fight, because I don’t want to fight anyone else. This one pisses me off.”

Adesanya will no doubt be rooting for Du Plessis against former foe Robert Whittaker at UFC 290 in July.

UFC president Dana White announced the showdown last week and revealed the winner of the contest will challenge Adesanya for the middleweight crown in Sydney next year.

And he wants to settle the score with Du Plessis on enemy territory, saying: “I want to do it in South Africa or somewhere in Africa.

“He thinks they’re going to have his back. It’s only the product of him that’s going to have his back. He doesn’t understand who I am.

"Like I said, he’s created division. I don’t like that. He didn’t have to do that.

"You don’t understand: I’m here now. I’m going to f*ck this guy up. I’m going to torture this guy.

“You don’t have to create division. This is not the time for that sh*t.

"You could have definitely got the fight without talking all that sh*t.

"Well, be careful what you wish for. You got what you want. He’s next. I’m going to f*cking beat him until he’s black.”
