Paulo Costa Wants To Fight Kamaru Usman After Loss At UFC 298

Paulo Costa has an idea for his next opponent at middleweight.

Last week, Costa lost to Robert Whittaker via decision and is now looking for a new opponent.

While speaking with Submission Radio, Costa recommended former welterweight champion Kamaru Usman as a potential opponent.

“He came from a loss as well, I came from a loss. Me and him need to put a win in our record.

“He already did everything he should have done at welterweight. I think it’s time, he’s not so young as well.”

Costa reiterated his stance on social media.

“Usman 185 lbs looks interesting.
Gourmet Chen Chen couldn’t finish him even short notice . I might”

Nassourdine Imavov is another middleweight who has his eyes set on Usman.

Usman is recently coming off a unanimous decision against Khamzat Chimaev in his middleweight debut.

It’s unclear what Usman decides to do but he definitely has plenty of suitors whenever he decides to fight.
