Cape Town – Dricus du Plessis’s proposed superfight with Dalcha Lungiambula looks to have fallen through.
The EFC were keen to match up both champ-champs this year, but Du Plessis (12-2) says negotiations are on ice with Lungiambula’s (9-1) camp.
“At this point, that fight is not happening right now, but you never know what happens,” Du Plessis revealed to mmaengage.com.
Du Plessis, who fights out of Team CIT MMA in Pretoria, will make his next appearance in the cage for Poland-based promotion KSW against Borys Mankowski (19-7) on March 23 at the Atlas Arena in Lodz.
As part of his preparations, ‘Stillknocks’ has just started a one-month camp in the US training with the likes of UFC superstars Luke Rockhold (16-4) and Robbie Lawler (28-12) at Hard Knocks 365 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
