As Dricus du Plessis prepares for arguably the biggest match of his mixed martial arts career, he has begun a war of words with his opponent, Sean Strickland. Dricus said during his UFC 297 media day interview that Strickland’s threats had no effect on him. 

Dricus Du Plessis is dating Nastassja Ras; he is not gay

Dricus Du Plessis is in a relationship with South African model Nastassja Ras. Details about the couple’s private relationship are scarce. Ras is an online influencer and a former winner of the Houvrou of Trouvrou reality show. 

The UFC star has denied rumors that he is gay. During his media day interview, Dricus acknowledged that there are pictures of him kissing men. However, he insisted showing affection to men doesn’t mean he is gay. Dricus explained:

“You are talking about me kissing other dudes. I have more photos. They are online, I don’t care. You think I care? I am completely comfortable with my sexuality. Have you seen my girl? So I do not care about that. Kissing my coach, my dad, my brothers…people are saying that’s gay? So what? I don’t care, I love those people, they are my family.”
