Recently on The Sias Du Plessis Show, Dricus Du Plessis explained why he respects Conor McGregor and all he has done.

“I mean, that guy, everything he touches, he’s such a legend in this sport,” Du Plessis said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “What he’s done for the sport, he’s transformed it into such a mainstream sport.

I can understand disliking the persona but knowing – I don’t know him personally but meeting him, different person, And even if you don’t like him, you can’t ever, ever discredit what he’s done for this sport because every single fighter needs to thank him, in my opinion, for the raise in pay, the raise in awareness of this sport because I think Conor McGregor might be one of the most famous people on earth”.
