Despite Dana White’s edict, Paulo Costa will not leave the middleweight division without the UFC title – MMA Sports

Another weekend of beating has arrived UFC Vegas 41 I turned on UFCAPEX last Saturday. (October 23, 2021) in Las Vegas, Nevada Bellator 269 It will be held at the VTB Arena in Moscow, Russia.

Many fighters remained licking their wounds, including Tim Johnson, who was knocked out in the first round by Fedor Emelianenko at the Bellator269 main event (highlight). And Choi Seung-Woo was forced to tap by Alex Caceres in a featherweight match at UFC Vegas 41.See it here). But which fighter suffered from the worst post-combat hangover and now have a few days removed from both shows?

Paulo Costa.

This Fight Week was one of the weirdest things we’ve ever experienced. A few days before UFC Vegas 41 weighs Costa, Costa tells the world he Was well over £ 200 And now that he had a way to put a weight limit of 186 pounds.After he and Vettori agreed to fight with a £ 195 catchweight, the fight Light heavyweight There was too much weight loss for Costa.

So not only did the giant Brazilian provoke the wrath of the martial arts world, but he was forced to cough 20 percent of his wallet to Vettori. .. To exacerbate the bad week for Costa, he lost the unanimous decision to “Italian Dreams”, resulting in his second consecutive defeat.

After the battle, Costa Biceps injury The criminal behind him has become heavier.And as you guessed it, everyone I was buying that injury It has something to do with losing weight. Now Costa will have to cover many areas to regain the good grace of UFC officials and fans.

But does he really want to?

He seems to have accepted the role of heel, Some insiders His weight drama even said it was a trick to get walking paper from promotions, but I haven’t really liked it these days. If so, that didn’t work because he was still on the roster at the time of writing this article.In addition, UFC head cheese Dana White has recorded that Costa will fight in the Octagon in the near future, but said he would, not middleweight. Compete in the £ 205 category Move forward.

Costa is not yet convinced.

“I was able to fight 205, but I was able to fight 185, so I think it’s better to put the weight back to 185, look for the belt, and then move up,” Costa said in a UFC Vegas 41 post. .. -Fight the press conference. “I can fight 205 at any time, but what if I could make 185?”

For Costa, a trip to the north is probably the best move, as the landscape change may do something good to him, as he lost two straights at £ 185 without having to worry about severe weight loss. .. As long as Costa should face in his first fight in his new weight class, assuming he actually goes there, it’s hot and cold veteran Ion Cuşaval.

Cuterava isn’t ranked, so it may not be the best fight Costa is looking for, but Costa isn’t ranked either, as there is only one fight in the division. However, fireworks are being launched here and there. Both men are wild and love good fist fights. Introducing Costa to the division against a true light heavyweight would be a good first match.
