Marvin Vettori and Paulo Costa have now agreed to go ahead at a catchweight instead of middleweight.
On Thursday, UFC officials finalized new terms of the bout agreement between Costa and Vettori, with the Saturday headliner will now take place at catchweight of 195-pounds after ‘Borrachinha’, who hasn’t ever missed weight in the past admitted that there was no way he’d be able to hit the middleweight limit.
According to MMAFighting, Costa will be docked 20% of his fight purse to Vettori.
UFC Vegas 41 : Costa (13-1) vs. Vettori (17-4-1) takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Both Fighters are coming off failed title bids against UFC Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.
