The highly anticipated middleweight fight between former title challenger Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa ended exactly the way fans had hoped.

Paulo Costa started the fight by applying pressure on Romero and initially, he was unfazed by Romero’s power and kept moving forward. Both fighters were knocked down in the first round. However, the fight was paused momentarily when Costa landed an accidental kick to Romero’s shin. However, in the end, it was Costa who’s hands were raised by the referee, although the crowd at the Honda Center in Anaheim didn’t seem to like the decision and were booing Costa.

All the three judges scored the fight 29-28 in favour of the Brazilian. He later called out the winner of Robert Whittaker and Israel Adesanya, who are scheduled to fight at UFC 243 in Melbourne.

I bring my best for this fight. I’m training like a crazy man. Yoel Romero is a real beast,” Costa said after the win. “I just came here to take my belt. I will be waiting for [Israel] Adesanya against [Robert] Whittaker.

After this fight, I want my chance to prove I am the champion.”

With this win, Paulo Costa extended his win record to 5-0 in UFC and 13-0 overall.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to his victory.
