Recently it was reported that the UFC was close to finalizing a new weight for Saturday’s Paulo Costa – Marvin Vettori fight, and now it’s been confirmed the bout will be at 195 pounds.
On Wednesday, Costa told media that he currently weighed over 210 pounds, and that he was not going to cut to the contractually agreed, 185-pound limit. Following that, it was reported the UFC was in talks to have the bout take place at a catchweight.
More recently, Yahoo Sports’ Kevin Iole has reported that the bout will be contested at 195 pounds.
Costa (13-1) hasn’t fought since he was stopped by middleweight champion Israel Adesanya in September.
Vettori (17-5-1), meanwhile, is also coming off a loss to Adesanya, who defeated him by decision in June.
