Las Vegas, NV– Paulo Costa may be the first fighter to ever genuinely cheat the weigh-in system and get away with it. On Wednesday Costa exposed he was 211 pounds and was not on track to make 185 pounds on Friday, which was his contracted weight to eliminate Marvin Vettori.
On Thursday it was announced the pair had agreed to a 195 pound catchweight, much to the dismay of MMA Twitter. Even more mind-boggling was the announcement that just hours after the 195-pound contract was concurred, it was then switched to 205 pounds.
Yes, in some way Costa negotiated himself into a completely various weight class on simply a few hours notification.
