Dricus Du Plessis has finally earned the opportunity to vie for UFC gold, a journey marked by his continuous remarks about former UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. However, Du Plessis’s opponent in this quest will be Sean Strickland, and an intense rivalry seems to be brewing between the two fighters.

Now Dricus Du Plessis has finally responded to the statement the UFC middleweight champion made about stabbing his opponent. DDP said that before Strickland gets the chance to stab him, he is going to knock him out on the mat of UFC 297.

“When this whole thing occurred, where he said, ‘If you do that again,’ he said he would kill me. He didn’t say to stab me. When he said kill, I said OK, you’re probably going to shoot me then. When I saw a knife, I was like, No, that’s not going to work. You won’t touch me with that knife. I’ll knock you out way before you get to stab me.” Via MMA Fighting.

As Strickland challenges Du Plessis to kill him, the latter assesses the situation. Du Plessis contemplates using a gun, but instead, he reveals a knife. Confident in his ability to secure victory, Du Plessis believes he will knock out Sean before any attempt to stab him will occur.
