It was an intriguing week in the UFC, with Paulo Costa admitting a bicep injury was the culprit behind his inability to make middleweight against Marvin Vettori, leading to the fight ultimately taking place at light heavyweight.
Vettori would go on to earn a hard-fought unanimous decision victory at UFC Fight Night 196. Afterward, UFC president Dana White said he believes Costa will need to compete at 205 pounds moving forward, while the Brazilian suggested maybe it was going to take a little more money for him to make a move like that.
There are layers of questions to what happened at UFC Fight Night 196, so here goes: What makes sense for Costa now? Is the UFC setting a bad precedent for allowing this? And did Vettori get a raw deal after all was said and done? Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Mike Bohn, Nolan King and “Gorgeous” George Garcia answered those questions with host John Morgan.
