Paulo Costa is without a doubt one of the best fighters currently coming out of Brazil and he also looks like a star in the making. Costa made his debut in March of 2017 and has since won all his fights via knockout inside round 2. He last fought at UFC 226 against Uriah Hall and brutally knocked him out.
His such explosive performance has people wanting to see him fight more top tier fighters and UFC is fulfilling the wishes of MMA fans as Paulo Costa and Yoel Romero is in works for UFC on ESPN 3.
They both were scheduled to fight each other at UFC 230 in New York last year but the fight fell through as Romero got injured, there were again talks of both fighting at UFC Brooklyn, but this time it was the Brazilian who injured himself.
The news was first reported by Brazilian website Combate, although UFC officials haven’t confirmed yet. UFC on ESPN 3 is slated to take place at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.
Meanwhile, the Cuban star is coming off a close decision loss to champion Robert Whittaker at UFC 225 in June.
Who do you guys think is going to win this fight?
