UFC Announces Paulo Costa – Yoel Romero Fight

By FCF Staff

Paulo Costa and Yoel Romero are booked to fight again, as the UFC has announced the middleweight contenders will battle at UFC 241.

Recently the promotion confirmed that the bout has been added to the August 17th card, which will take place in Anaheim, California.

Costa (12-0) hasn’t fought now since last July, when he stopped Uriah Hall at UFC 226.

Romero (13-3), meanwhile, hasn’t competed since last June when he lost via split decision to champion Robert Whittaker.

The UFC attempted to have Costa and Romero fight last November, but the latter couldn’t commit due to injuries. Then this past April, the middleweights were expected to fight, but Costa was ineligible due a suspension for intravenously taking saline solution and medication.
