Fans have eagerly awaited Adesanya’s return, with speculations mounting about his potential headline role at UFC 300. However, negotiations with his fierce rival Dricus du Plessis for the event remained uncertain.

The rivalry between Adesanya and du Plessis has been marked by verbal exchanges, particularly with du Plessis emphasizing his commitment to being a true African champion, contrasting Adesanya’s Nigerian roots with his relocation to New Zealand.

Adesanya hinted at his return with a post on X, sharing an edited image of himself wearing the UFC’s new golden glove. In his announcement on Monday, he cryptically wrote, “The SUN of Africa is the same sun that lights up our planet. The SUN will set and will rise again until you walk into it. The SUN, enjoy while it shines. Darkness falls when it’s gone.”

The scheduled bout is set to take place on August 17, marking a highly anticipated comeback for Adesanya in the UFC arena.
