10 Middleweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2020


Dricus “Stillknocks” Du Plessis

26 | 6’0″ | Hatfield, Pretoria, South Africa | 14-2 | 13 Finishes | 5 KO/TKOs, 9 Submissions (RNC, Guillotine) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 112-42 | Best Win – Roberto Soldic (13-2)

Dricus Du Plessis is only 25-years-old. His only losses are to former UFC fighter Garreth McLellan and top prospect Roberto Soldic who he beat first, under the KSW banner. He’s a former dual champion at middleweight and welterweight for EFC and a former KSW welterweight champion.

Du Plessis is a good wrestler, with eight of his twelve wins coming by submission all by some form of choke. So his ability to get the back is very good and he can drop for a guillotine and lock it up in an instant. He is a South African K-1 kickboxing champion who has been improving on the feet as well.
