Knockout! Watch Paulo Costa topple Uriah Hall via TKO at UFC 226

Undefeated Brazilian juggernaut Paulo Costa continued his impressive middleweight tear earlier tonight (Sat., July 7, 2018) at UFC 226 from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, when he put an end to Uriah Hall via second-round TKO.

Hall fought well and landed some good shots over the course of the fight, but Costa was simply too powerful and precise. He kept the pressure on from the opening gate and eventually found a finish in the second round after slamming punches into Hall at will. “Prime Time” absorbed a ton of damage before falling to the canvas and covering up.

With this performance, Costa remains perfect at 185 pounds and has put himself in line for a massive fight his next time out. Few middleweight prospects have made the splash he has so fight fans should feel excited about Costa’s divisional future.
