Paulo Costa will fight Marvin Vettori at UFC 41 main event on October 23, 2021 at UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Paulo Costa is coming off a loss against Israel Adesanya at UFC 253 for the Middleweight Championship, which was his only loss so far in his MMA career. Although the Brazilian showed his class previously against Johny Hendricks, Uriah Hall and other fighters. But, it seems he has more to show off his class. Costa will start tonight’s bout with a 13-1 record.
Vettori, on the other hand, will start the fight with a 17-5-1 record. He is coming off a loss against Adesanya at UFC 263 for the UFC Middleweight Championship. However, it was a rematch and the first match between them took place in 2018, which was also a loss for Vettori. Between these two losses Vettori won all other fights and had a winning streak of five fights. So, he will surely be looking to get back to the winning track.
