Michael Bisping believes Dricus Du Plessis is “really pissed off” about the Kamaru Usman vs. Khamzat Chimaev fight booking: “He should be fighting for the belt”
UFC commentator Michael Bisping believes Dricus du Plessis will be frustrated about not getting a title shot.
Following on from his win over Robert Whittaker, it seemed as if Dricus du Plessis was destined to be the next man in line to fight Israel Adesanya for the UFC middleweight championship. Alas, it didn’t quite work out that way. Instead, Sean Strickland battled and beat Adesanya at UFC 293 after du Plessis was unable to make a quick turnaround.
Now, Kamaru Usman and Khamzat Chimaev will meet at UFC 294 this weekend with the winner claiming a shot at the belt, as per Dana White.
With du Plessis being left out in the cold, Michael Bisping has weighed in on the situation.
Bisping backs du Plessis
“That might raise an eyebrow or two because there is certainly a lot of worth contenders out there. So, if we take a look at the rankings here, we can see Sean Strickland the champion, just had that great win over Israel Adesanya, four rounds to one.
“There it is, at number two, Dricus Du Plessis. You got to think that he’s the one right now that’s really p*ssed off to hear this news because after the way he beat Robert Whittaker and the win streak that he was on and the way he finished most people then yeah, I understand that, he should be fighting for the belt.”

Either way, you’d have to imagine Dricus will be itching to get back into the Octagon sooner rather than later.
