Fight week began with Costa (13-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) vs. Vettori (17-5-1 MMA, 7-3-1 UFC) scheduled as a middleweight contest. It was then moved to a 195-pound catchweight due to Costa’s poor weight management, then just hours prior to weigh-ins, was shifted again to light heavyweight.
Both men stepped on the scale Friday morning at UFC Fight Night 196 weigh-ins, and were able to hit the revised weight. Costa came to weigh-ins six minutes into the two-hour window, registering at 204.5 pounds. Vettori, meanwhile, came in later, 94 minutes into the session, and was 204.
