    Costa wins a close decision

    But I know 95% of fans will pick Whittaker via prisoner of moment

    Whittaker, easily.

    And anyone who makes jokes about sexual assault should be ashamed of themselves.

    Whittaker will probably win but I'll still rooting for Costa

    He got held up by Uriah Halls Jab....

    In all seriousness Robert Whittaker either gets the TKO or the Decision, he's way more versatile on the Feet and has been mixing things up Beautifully these past two fights. Costa doesn't really do a good job cutting the cage much outside of the Body Kick he tries to throw, and Rob has some pretty good movement himself so unless he runs into something, I got Rob.

    Whittaker.

    He's accustomed to war, in his prime (if you ask me) and match up wise i see him being too clever to let himself get cornered.

    Costa will fade, the longer the fight goes on, especially against such a fast opponent.
    Depending on if it's a main event (i guess it would be one) i see Whittaker TKOing Costa in the fourth, otherwise i'd lean towards a decision with the possibility of Rob finishing Costa in the late 3rd round.

    Ha, great minds think alike!

    I think the difference in cardio heavily favors Whittaker too, especially in a five rounder.

    Whittaker's the all-around better fighter. Much faster and much more technical, it would be tough to bet him against him in this one.

    The fight makes zero sense though. Whittaker's picked up 2 big wins against top contenders after his beatdown by Izzy, he's earned the rematch. Costa needs to get back in line behind Whittaker and fight someone like Gastelum or Brunson.

    Whittaker and it should not close, whoever... Costa has a punchers chance, Rob has been hurt badly in 3 of his last 4 fights, it's not the hardest thing in the world to find his button when he gets careless.

    Costa has power and a solid chin, that combined with Whittaker's carefulness might give him the chance to land something big.

    Rob is faster, a better striker, has a bigger gas tank and enough power to threaten Costa.

    Well that’s random. If you’re talking about my post I wasn’t joking.

    Whittaker regardless of whether it's a 3 or 5 round fight, but Costa's got a better chance in a 3 rounder. Zero sense in this match up currently though Whittaker's earned a rematch with Adesanya while Costa needs to get a couple of quality wins before he's in contention again.

    Exactly what I said. I didn’t mean rape in the sexual assault way, just the way he was completely dominated by Izzy. I can see why you thought that though because of the dry hump after Izzy won. I didn’t even think of that until I saw your post. I doubt Costa cares about that, I think he has PTSD now from his brutal (and only) loss. That has to be devastating for a undefeated fighter.

    I fixed my post so it’s not confusing anymore.

    Robert is shot but he will make an easy work on Costa
    -Pillow fisted
    -small gas tank
    -very sloppy & far from being technical

    Robert wins 9/10

    Costa should fight Jared imo
