*Dana White has issued a response to Israel Adesanya calling Dricus Du Plessis the N-word after his TKO victory over Robert Whittaker at UFC 290.

Nigerian-born New Zealander Adesanya caught major heat on social media over his outburst Saturday night during the International Fight Week card in Las Vegas. White was questioned about the incident in the post-fight new conference and defended the middleweight champion.

“He’s black, who gives a S-,” White remarked, Total Pro Sports reports. “I could care less, this is the fight business, Israel Adesanya can say whatever he wants to say, who gives a S-, why are people B-ing about that? Of course they are…too F-ing bad.”

Du Plessis, a South African-born professional mixed martial artist, also issued a response, calling Adesanya a clown.

“He’s behaving like a clown in there. That’s not how a champion behaves. That’s not at all how a man behaves. He’s behaving like a child. Conduct yourself like a champion,” he advised. “There’s people looking up to you, and you’re behaving like that. If that sells tickets, good for him. I’ll sell tickets in my way. I’m a gentleman, I’m a man, and I’ll behave like a man.”

Adesanya called his upcoming opponent a “n***a” in response to Du Plessis declaring himself the “real African fighter” of the UFC. During their heated exchange over the weekend, Adesanya jokingly referred to Du Plessis as “my African brother.”

“Let’s go n***a. What’s up, b***h? Let’s go, n***a,” he said, The Sun reports.

“Yeah, n***a. What the f**k you gonna do, n***a? Yeah, my African brother, yeah my African brother. What’s up, brother?”

Du Plessis responded: “I’m African, but I’m no brother of yours, son.”

Adesanya replied: “You my n***a, let’s go. You my n***a for real.”
