Paulo Costa’s reaction to the cancellation of the fight with Ikram Aliskerov

All MMA News

“Paulo Costa’s fight is canceled because he is fighting Khamzat Chimaev at UFC 294 in Abu Dhabi,” the Brazilian quoted one of the news insiders as saying, ‘the guy is smart enough’.

Previously informed sources close to the Russian fighter’s team reported that Costa was eliminated from the fight with Aliskerov, and his place on the tournament card could be taken by Georgian representative Roman Dolidze, who is on the ninth line in the UFC middle division ranking.

Paulo Costa, 32, last stepped into the octagon last August, defeating Luke Rockhold by unanimous decision to end his two-game losing streak against Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori.
