In a freshly released training footage, ex-UFC middleweight kingpin Israel Adesanya underscores his dedication and readiness for a potential re-entry into the cage. He subtly teases a title clash with adversary Dricus du Plessis scheduled for the UFC 305 event.

Since his previous appearance in September at UFC 293, Israel Adesanya has been absent from competition. He made headlines as the first UFC champion to lose his belt twice in the course of one year. There is speculation circulating that Adesanya will headline UFC 305 against du Plessis this coming August.

Adesanya is intensifying his training regimen, signaling that he is gearing up for another stint in the octagon. Anticipation is building for a showdown between Adesanya and du Plessis at the Perth-hosted UFC 305.

Could Israel Adesanya’s UFC Return Happen at UFC 305?

Amid the swirling rumors of a comeback later this year, Israel Adesanya has uploaded fresh snaps from his training sessions for fans to see.

Adesanya’s momentous win over Alex Pereira at UFC 287 to reclaim the middleweight belt stands as a remarkable highlight of his athletic career. Nonetheless, his second tenure as champion was cut short following a surprise upset by Sean Strickland in September of the prior year at UFC 293.

Initially, following the loss to Strickland, Adesanya contemplated a prolonged hiatus from the sport, but eventual discussions with his coaching team appeared to reverse that decision. Now, the former champion is keeping followers abreast with images of intense training endeavors.

The unveiling of these training photos aligns with persistent whispers that Israel Adesanya might step back into the spotlight to challenge current middleweight champ, Dricus Du Plessis, at UFC 305 in Perth. On their Instagram account, he teased followers with the cryptic words, “Just hang up, I’m dialed in. ☎️”

Following his victory over Robert Whittaker at UFC 290, Du Plessis engaged in a notable confrontation with Adesanya inside the cage. While “Stillknocks” has hinted at having a fight lined up, the UFC has yet to make a formal announcement.</Allusions to Adesanya’s possible matchup are intriguing, especially after his strategic assessment of Sean Strickland’s prospect against Paulo Costa at UFC 302 – an opinion he has publicly shared.
