“The first time I heard his name was on Friday when he fought,” said Costa, who added that Adesanya would be an easier fight for him than Weidman. “People asked me about this fight, and I said I don’t know this guy. But if the people want this fight, let’s make this fight.

“My priority is Chris Weidman. He’s a former champion, he’s very famous in the world, and he’s higher ranked. But I’m a fighter, and the UFC decides. (UFC President) Dana White decides. I’m here to make the biggest and the greatest fights. So if he wants it and everybody wants it, I’ll fight Israel.”

This is the fight that MMA fans would be very much interested in watching and both guys have been creating a lot of buzz lately.
