UFC president Dana White has confirmed that UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya will next fight Paulo Costa and the fight could happen in August of this year.
The UFC is one of the few sports that has kept going throughout the Coronavirus pandemic. With Tony Ferguson being dominated by Justin Gaethje at UFC 249, Dana White wants an Adesanya title defence to be next on the cards.
When asked about a probable Adesanya vs Costa fight, White responded.
“Oh yeah! That fight’s happening.”
Adesanya defeated Yoel Romero back in March, largely due to the fact Costa was ruled out due to a bicep injury.
