Next fight of Paulo Costa is not determined yet.
Former UFC middleweight title contender Paulo Costa will be unable to face the former champion Robert Whittaker on April 17 due to "severe flu". MMA Junkie informs about this with reference to its own sources.
Paulo Costa has asked UFC President Dana White to give him rematch with Israel Adesanya. Along the way, Costa called his recent rival "human trash". This happened due to the fact that "Easy" allowed himself obscene gestures during the celebration of the victory over Costa.
Recently it became known that Paulo Costa has signed a contract for the fight against Israel Adesanya. Later, UFC President Dana White confirmed: in the next fight Adesanya will defend his champion belt in the fight against Costa. However, it seems that Israel is in no hurry to sign the contract for the battle. Costa tweeted an angry post asking to give him the home address of Adesanya to force him to sign.
After the victory over Yoel Romero Paulo Costa said that he wanted to fight UFC interim middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. It happened after Adesanya, commenting on the victory of Costa, attached to the post dinosaur emoji.
