In a recent appearance on The Jim Rome Show, UFC CEO Dana White officially announced that the middleweight title will be contested at UFC 305 in Perth, Australia. The bout will feature current champion Dricus Du Plessis defending his title against former champion Israel Adesanya.

"August 17 in Perth. Now it's official," White stated.

This match will be Du Plessis's first title defense since he captured the belt from Sean Strickland at UFC 297 in Toronto last January. Adesanya will strive to become the first fighter since Randy Couture to achieve three separate title reigns in the same division.
