One of the most of aggressive middleweight title fight is just a few weeks away, Sean Strickland will show up for his first title defense against the top contender Dricus Du Plessis. A lot has been said and done during the buildup of this event.

On 20th January both fighters will get to settle the animosity inside the cage and the whole world is waiting to see if Dricus Du Plessis can become successful in dethroning Sean Strickland.In a recent Instagram post, Du Plessis showed hunger and eagerness to obtain the prestigious middleweight belt.

He said it he will not return back to his country without getting it. Du Plessis will soon reach Canada; next week will be filled with media day, press conference and many other interviews. People have become far more interested to watch this match after the recent brawl happened.

If Israel Adesanya shows up in 2024 he will surely face either one of them.

Dricus Du Plessis’s Instagram post

“That’s a wrap!

Hard part of camp is in the books, prepare to see the best Stillknocks by far step in there 20 Jan. My coaches my team and everyone involved in this camp I will be forever grateful. Tonight we fly out to go get what I promised myself, those who’ve always been in my corner and the Whole South Africa.

I promise you I’m bringing home the @ufc MW title or I’ll die trying”. Dricus Du Plessis last fight against Robert Whittaker was absolutely explosive and the same aggression and quality striking can be expected in this title fight.

Sean Strickland seemed to be really affected by the statements made by Dricus Du Plessis, their hatred against each other is very strong and it will be very interesting to see who’s hands get raised on 20th January.
