Where To Watch: Paulo Costa Vs. Marvin Vettori Tonight
Paulo Costa and Marvin Vettori finally made weight for their five-round matchup on Saturday.
After three days of changes, Costa and Vettori cemented the UFC Vegas 41 headliner when they weighed in at 204.5 pounds and 204 pounds respectively.
A scramble for last minute changes erupted when Costa admitted he wasn’t able to cut down to 186 pounds for their initial middleweight battle. Vettori then issued a gentleman’s agreement to fight at 195 pounds, but that was scratched to the now light heavyweight limit.
Vettori (17-4-1) said he didn’t care what weight the fight took place.
Costa (13-1) are both coming off a championship loss to middleweight champion Israel Adesanya. Costa lost via TKO in September 2020 while Vettori fell short via unanimous decsion in June.
