The last time Romero entered the octagon was at UFC 225 in June against champion Robert Whittaker. Romero had a hard fought twenty-five minute battle where he suffered a razor thin split decision loss to Whittaker. Based on those performances, Costa believes he can finish both Romero and Whittaker within two rounds.

”I didn’t like the Whittaker and Romero fight,” Costa said. “I thought to myself, if I were in that cage I would have knocked out both of them because they had the opportunity to connect clean strikes in the face and no one went down. If it was me, I would have knocked them out way sooner. It wouldn’t even get to the third round.”

Costa concluded saying Romero’s weight cutting issues have further motivated him for their fight.

”The fact that he has trouble make weight cheers me up,” Costa said. “It’s 20 percent more going to my pocket. Everything I want is him to miss weight. Get there heavy and give me my 20 or 30 percent. Thirty is even better. That’s all I want. Yoel Romero, eat a lot and get there heavy, please. I want your 30 percent.”
