Paulo Costa is set for a battle he desired versus Yoel Romero on the primary card of UFC241 The 2 have actually been reserved 2 previous times however injuries on both sides pressed it back to now.

Why Costa still desired that battle versus Romero is simple. He understands he wins the battle although he is a first-rate wrestler he still believes he will knock him out.

“Yoel Romero is a champion in wrestling. But, this is MMA. We aren’t going to fight wrestling. Believe me, I’m going to knock him out. And if he isn’t smart, I’ll take him down and submit him,” Costa stated to BJPENN.com. “I just say to Yoel, be careful what you wish for,” Costa discussed. “I will fight Romero how I always fight. The first second of the fight I will try to knock him out or even submit him. I will chase him and hunt him inside the Octagon. I’m going to knock him out. It will be in the first round.”

If Costa does undoubtedly do that, he states he will be defending the middleweight title in his next battle.

“No question if I win this I will fight for the title next,” Costa stated. “When I beat him — especially in the way I beat him — the only option will be for me to fight for the title. I will beat him so badly, I will fight for the belt next.”
