    Loved this fight. Costa just continually punished Hall to the body.

    Looking forward to UFC 230 to see how he'll fare against Yoel. Hopefully he's the real deal and we can see him fight Whittaker or Kelvin for the belt in 2019.

    Yoel is a butcher. He will cut off his head. MysticCharnel2500 predict this.

    That was a vicious fight.

    Both guys were landing bombs.

    If Romero hasn't suddenly aged overnight, he will completely demolish Paulo Costa.

    Can't wait for UFC 230. Shit's going to be INSANE.

    Paulo currently has everything except being tested against the top, and now we'll see how it will go vs Yoel. Thinking about it, Costa is a bad matchup for Yoel, who is a slow starter in his own right.

    Costa doesn't really knockout people clean, and Yoel has a tremendous chin and can wrestle and recover if he gets wobbled. Something tells me that Yoel will get the timing right of Costa daringly moving in and will badly hurt Costa, but will he be able to finish Costa? That really depends on how Costa will try to recover and cover up.

    I favor Yoel but I'm not as confident as you are.

    Costa is a beast and he is very active.

    Yoel will probably counter him though.

    I think there are a lot of holes in his game and the Hall fight exposed a lot of them.

    He's a beast but I don't think he's ready for a guy like Romero yet. He's definitely a force in the MW division though.

    Costa always going for a proper porrada with them bombs! Loved that fight against Uriah Hall.

    Romero vs Costa - 2 Incredible Hulks Collide. This is one of those fights that not only is exciting but fun match up as well. Not many times we see 2 freaks going at it. I hope we will be entertained thoroughly with this fight! May the best Hulk smash.

    PS. Natty Goat is a fun nickname.

    Yoel Wins. THE UFC is either confident in Costa, or just isn't trying to build him up the way they should in my opinion.

    I see Costa beating Whitaker. Easy. I don't see it against Romero. Match ups are everything, really think UFC is messing up here with great talent like Costa.

    costa goes low on like almost every single body-head combination.


    i just don't understand how this dude can look the way he does, throw 100 % power for most of the fight, rip hard combinations like that and not get fuckin tired.

    If Costa pressures Romero the same way he did Hall, he's getting taken down or slept early.

    Hall is always exciting win or lose. He almost had Costa there

    I know this is about Costa but Hall put on a fantastic fight there against one of the best rising stars in the UFC. I hope he gets at least one more fight.

    He could still be the real deal and lose to Yoel who is arguably the best in the MW division.

    That was a good; enjoyed the highlight thanks. But Costa can't be bull rushing forward with that same style like Rocky against people like Yoel he'll get countered viciously. Makes for good entertainment for us fans though lol

    I liked Hall's game plan in that fight but Costa's just so aggressive that some guys don't know how to deal with it.
    I was sad for Hall but happy for Costa. It's going to be interesting when we see him being unable to bully guys to the cage.
