Who will win UFC Fight Night Costa vs Vettori?

Costa returns to the Octagon after copping a beating from Adesanya at UFC 253 in September 2020. Vettori has welcomed his return by calling his opponent fat and unprepared. Vettori is also returning after copping a beating from Adesanya, his in UFC 263 in June this year.

Vettori has fought 3 times since Costa was last in the Octagon and will look to wrestle the Brazilian powerhouse in this fight. He is a more rounded fighter and will take the bout to Costa who, it must be said, looked dispirited throughout the beating he copped from Adesanya.

Costa's edge will be his punching power although his opponent has shown he can take shots from the best of them. Vettori is the slight favourite across UFC experts and is our choice for the fight.
