Miss Universe, Zozi Tunzi to say goodbye to the crown May this year

@josesintomma: "Imagine going 1-4 at the beginning of your UFC career, come back, win the championship, and beat a generational talent in Israel Adesanya. The stuff of legends, man. #UFC259."

@espnmma: "Since starting his UFC run with a 2-4 record, Jan Blachowicz won 9 of his last 10 fights, became undisputed UFC light heavyweight champion and handed Israel Adesanya his first defeat."

"Doubt him now #UFC259"

@Chisanga_Malata: "Israel Adesanya will get trolled by some people after his loss. That’s a given."

"But as he said, he dared to be great. For that, he deserves immense props."

"It takes a special type of courage to step out of your comfort zone and put it all on the line as he did. Respect."

In other, a young South African UFC fighter recently made South Africa very proud after he won his first match. Dricus du Plessis had his first fight against Brazilian fighter, Markus Perez on October 11, 2020 in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Dricus impressively beat the Brazilian during the first round of the match with a shocking knock-out, much to his own surprise and delight. Speaking after the match, he had this to say:

“There was so much pressure, outside pressure from my countrymen and with pleasure I mean the support I’ve been getting from my whole country, I think there is 40 million people sitting in front of their TVs watching now.

"It’s insane I can’t believe what happened,” Du Plessis said after the fight. “It feels like South Africa is playing in a Rugby World Cup final again.”
