The lead up to the highly-anticipated Middleweight title fight between division champion, Israel Adesanya, and power-punching contender, Paulo Costa, already got off to a heated start during their recent segment on ESPN’s SportsCenter.
And with one month remaining until the two men face off at UFC 253 on Sept. 26, 2020, on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, things will only get spicier between the two combatants in the days leading up to the bout.
Before the two come face-to-face on fight night, as well as during the pre-fight staredowns, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) gets you warmed up with a stellar promo video pumping up the 185-pound title fight.
Both men have yet to taste defeat with Adesanya going 19-0, 8-0 UFC, and Costa racking up a mint 13-0, 5-0 UFC, mark in the seven years each man has been fighting in professional mixed martial arts (MMA).
That being said, one man’s “O” has got to go as we will either see the crowing of a new champion in “The Eraser” or the continued ascension of “The Last Stylebender” as one of the bigger stars in the sport.
