    Tony Kelley had no mercy when he brutally broke down and finished Randy Costa on the ground in the UFC 269 early prelims.  Tony Kelley entered the Octagon on Saturday’s UFC 269 early prelims as a +176 underdog to the young and explosive Randy Costa, who was favored at -206. He exited the Octagon with a dominant victory, giving him his second straight UFC victory and a shot at a bonus. Costa has been known for his explosive starts to fights, which made it surprising when Kelley jumped out early and dominated the fight from the start. Costa was making a clear effort to reserve his energy and put together a long fight, something that Daniel Cormier revealed on commentary he had mentioned was his game plan in the fight. However, he was clearly too conservative and allowed Kelley to do some too much work early. Kelley opened up the second round with a clear focus on damaging the base and the body of Costa. He threw leg kicks and front kicks that rocked the younger fighter, forcing Costa to...
    Getty UFC President Dana White was offered a celebrity boxing match. UFC president Dana White wants a star to remain up a weight class, but the fighter has other plans. On October 23, 2021, top-ranked middleweights met in the middle of the Octagon as No. 2-ranked contender Paulo Costa fought No. 5 Marvin Vettori in the main event of UFC Fight Night 196. It was an all-out war that went the distance and “The Italian Dream” edged the scorecards, winning a unanimous decision over Costa. A major factor of the bout is that it wasn’t contested in the fighters’ division. They fought a division up, at light heavyweight, as Costa announced during fight week that he couldn’t make 185 pounds. And according to the UFC president, “Borrachinha” won’t be heading back down. Speaking with the media during the post-fight presser, White said about Costa: “He’s a light heavyweight,” via MMA Fighting. White continued, saying that Costa is no longer a middleweight.  “He was in shape,” he said. “It’s not like the guy showed up out of shape, or...
    Paulo Costa wants 195 pound catchweight, says he won’t make 185 to fight Marvin Vettori in UFC Vegas 41 main event. UFC middleweight contender Paulo Costa is so certain that he’ll miss weight ahead of UFC Vegas 41 that he’s already calling to change the 185-pound main event to a catchweight bout at 195 pounds. Costa is looking to get back in the win column after losing to middleweight champion Israel Adesanya at UFC 253. After a hostile buildup to their fight, Adesanya knocked out Costa in the second round and dominated the bout for as long as it lasted. During his UFC Vegas 41 pre-fight press conference, Costa seemed candid when discussing his weight-cutting process before his fight with Marvin Vettori. “I think this fight will happen, and it won’t happen if he doesn’t want to fight me,” Costa said. “Maybe we can do a catchweight at 195, could be a more explosive and exciting fight for the fans. I think with both guys heavy, a knockout could happen. Easily.” “Right now, I’m at [211 pounds]. It isn’t on...
    LAS VEGAS — Many scoffed, or even laughed, at Marvin Vettori when he acted shocked at Bruce Buffer’s announcement following UFC 263 in June that made official Israel Adesanya’s unanimous decision victory over him in their middleweight title fight. Seconds before Buffer read the judges’ verdict, when Adesanya greeted Vettori after the final bell, Vettori told him he believed he’d won the bout. Adesanya responded by making an odd face that was caught on camera. Belief in oneself, however, is a critical element of success in all walks of life, but particularly in fighting. The legendary boxing champion Muhammad Ali once said, “I am the greatest. I said that even before I knew I was.” There are few in the UFC who believe in themselves more than Marvin Vettori, the fifth-ranked middleweight who on Saturday at UFC Vegas 41 will face No. 2 Paulo Costa in a critical matchup at Apex. Vettori is a -150 favorite at BetMGM to beat Costa (+125). Adesanya won his title fight with Vettori 50-45 on all three cards, but Vettori told Yahoo Sports he...
    Jamie Foxx Says He Is Not the Marrying Type in New Book: Maybe in a Few Decades Brazil Markets Sink on Fears Social Aid to Break Fiscal Rule LAS VEGAS — The middleweight bout on Saturday at Apex between No. 2 Paulo Costa and No. 5 Marvin Vettori figures to be a fan-friendly bout. The more fan-friendly you believe it will be, though, figures to influence who you believe will win the fight. Both men are coming off title fight losses to champion Israel Adesanya. Costa was stopped late in the second round in Abu Dhabi by Adesanya at UFC 253. Vettori dropped a five-round decision to Adesanya at UFC 263 in June. Vettori has fought three times since Costa has last been in the cage. And Costa, frankly, did not look good against Adesanya. He appeared to break mentally under the pressure and was dominated by the champion. If you look at the Costa prior to the Adesanya fight, you see one of the most dangerous men in the UFC. He was 13-0 with 11 knockouts and one...
    08/19/2021 On at 21:07 CEST . The Spanish-Brazilian forward Diego Costa affirmed this Thursday, in his presentation as a new Atlético Mineiro player, that he wishes to “enter the history” of the Belo Horizonte club, whose greatness and “ambitious” sports project captivated him. “I came here to fight, to contribute something from my experience, to conquer something,” said the former Atlético de Madrid and Chelsea footballer at his first press conference with the roosters shirt. Coast, 32 years old and a native of Lagarto, a town located in the northeast region of Brazil, signed a contract with Mineiro until December 2022. The striker was free on the market since at the end of 2020 he decided to end his career at Atlético de Madrid, where he spent his best years as a footballer. “Our goal is to win titles, we must not be afraid to say it. I came to win titles, to enter the history of the Rooster,” he said, although he urged to keep “our feet on the ground” and go “step by...

One of the biggest non-pay-per-view UFC events of the year goes down this Saturday at UFC Vegas 32, from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.

    UFC: Kelvin Gastelum steps in to face Robert Whittaker on April 17th By: Daniel Cunningham March 16, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditEarlier today, we learned that the UFC‘s main event on April 17th had lost one of it’s headliners. Paulo Costa (13-1) came down with the flu and as a result he couldn’t train for his upcoming main event slot against Robert Whittaker (22-5). As a result, Costa had to pull out of the fight. The UFC was thinking about potentially moving the fight back, but with the uncertainty of Costa’s condition, they decided to move on to try and find a replacement. Former interim title challenger, Kelvin Gastelum (16-6, 1 NC) immediately volunteered.

Sure enough, Costa fell out and a replacement was needed. The UFC contacted Gastelum and the sides came to an agreement. ESPN’s Brett Okamoto was the first to report...

    UFC 259: Five keys to victory for Israel Adesanya. UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya is moving up in weight to fight the light heavyweight champion, Jan Blachowicz on Saturday night at UFC 259, to try and become the fifth fighter in UFC history to hold two belts simultaneously. In Adesanya’s last fight, he defended the middleweight strap on Fight Island in Abu Dhabi in September at UFC 253 against Paulo Costa. Although this was a middleweight fight, Costa was likely just as big as what Blachowicz will be on Saturday night after the weight cut. Adesanya has experience going up against guys who are bigger than him, as he has fought at higher weight classes throughout his previous illustrious kickboxing career. It will be interesting to see how he does moving up in weight in the UFC. Here are his five keys to victory.1. Keep a distanceI think that Israel Adesanya knows that he should have a similar strategy in this fight as he did in his last two title defenses against Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa. If Jan Blachowicz...
    PAULO COSTA has appeared to poke fun at his claim he got drunk the night before his showdown with Israel Adesanya. Costa, 29, blamed his second-round TKO loss to The Last Stylebender on a hangover, bizarrely claiming he'd drunk a bottle of wine the evening before their UFC 253 title fight. Sober Costa is still undefeated ????— Paulo Costa ( Borrachinha ) (@BorrachinhaMMA) March 3, 2021 3Paulo Costa claimed he was hungover in his UFC 253 defeat to Israel AdesanyaCredit: Getty The previously-undefeated Brazilian's explanation for his lacklustre display became the butt of several jokes in the MMA world. And Borrachinha appeared to join in on the act early on Wednesday morning, tweeting alongside a wine emoji: "Sober Costa is still undefeated." Costa's claim to have been nursing a hangover before the biggest fight of his life amused Adesanya, who told MMA Junkie: “That’s just funny. “There’s certain things I’ve done before some of my fights in the past where I learnt my mistakes, but I went in and got my job done. "Some people aren’t cut out for that...
    Paulo Costa lost to Israel Adesanya at UFC 253 with the middleweight title on the line and months later he revealed why he may have been defeated via technical knockout. Costa said in a video on Sunday that it was leg cramps and a bottle of wine that were contributing factors in his performance in the octagon. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "I was kind of drunk [when] I fought, maybe, on hangover. I couldn’t sleep because of the [leg] cramps. Keep in mind that the fight happens at 9 a.m. [local time], we have to wake up at 5 to get ready, stretch, wrap the hands. The UFC told us to wake up at 5 in the morning to go to the arena to fight. I hadn’t slept until 2:30," Costa said, via MMA Fighting. "It was my mistake and I don’t blame anyone else, it was something I chose [to do], but, in order to try to sleep, because I had to sleep since I was awake for 24 hours, I had wine, too much wine, a...
    Shot by shot: Hollywood’s wildest and weirdest remakes Houses in These Cities Are Suddenly Major Bargains Few are as cool, calm and calculated as UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. © Provided by MMAJunkie In his most recent outing at UFC 253 in September Adesanya put his title on the line against Paulo Costa in one of the most highly anticipated fights of the year. But, despite the heated rivalry between the pair heading into the bout, Adesanya remained unfazed when he took on the Brazilian powerhouse, who had vowed to run right through him. The champion used strong leg kicks right off the bat, while Costa fired back with some hard shots to the body. Adesanya continued to chop away at Costa’s lead leg, and added some sniping jabs to his attack. Costa started taunting the champion, but didn’t throw too much offense his way. Round 2 saw more of the same, as Adesanya marked up Costa’s leg and eventually landed a blistering counter left that dropped the Brazilian. The champ then moved in and rained down punches from...
    Perennial middleweight contender Robert Whittaker is set to make his return to the UFC Octagon in April against recent title challenger Paulo Costa. ‘The Reaper’ and ‘Borrachinha’ will headline a UFC Fight Night card on April 17th, and the highly anticipated clash will probably decide the next middleweight contender. ‘Bobby Knuckles‘ defeated Jared Cannonier at UFC 254, stacking up two consecutive wins over top contenders. Before that, he had bettered Darren Till in July. Costa, on the other hand, is coming off of a loss against champion Israel Adesanya at UFC 254. This was the Brazilian’s first loss in his professional career. Whittaker lost his belt to ‘Stylebender’ at UFC 243 and wants to get another shot at the champion. But the former kingpin doesn’t intend to campaign or force for a rematch. He is content to wait for his turn. Adesanya is set to move to light-heavyweight as he will challenge Jan Blachowicz for the 205 lbs title in March. With the champion moving up, the division is in danger of being put on hold. But ‘Stylebender’ doesn’t intend...
    Shia LaBeouf may be getting some unexpected in-person family support from his convicted sex offender father as the actor faces abuse claims made against him by British singer FKA twigs. Last week FKA twigs accused ex-boyfriend Shia of sexual battery and 'relentless' physical and emotional abuse in a lawsuit which is sure to spark a bitter legal battle.   Shia's father Jeffrey LaBeouf, 72, a former heroin addict, was placed on the sex offender registry for life after he was convicted of assault with attempt to commit rape in 1981 for attacking a stranger in her car. But now changes to the sex offender registry are due to come into effect next month in California, which mean the Transformers actor's father could return home after spending years lying low in Costa Rica, according to a legal expert.   Shia LaBeouf's father Jeffrey, 72, is on the sex offender registry for life after being convicted of assault and attempted rape in 1981. Jeffrey has been laying low in Costa Rica after he 'grew tired' with Megan's Law, which mean his mugshot, address and...

Adesanya has been vocal about wanting to fight “Bones” in 2021 and Jones seemingly wants the fight as well. Speaking with UFC Arabia, White was asked about the recent feud between Jones and Adesanya and if that was the fight to make. “Yeah, that’s the fight to make, 100 percent,” White said. “I think that a fight between those two is massive.” White was then asked if he wanted to make the fight as soon possible, the UFC president responded, “I don’t know.
