Prediction: correct Costa   correct KO/TKO   correct Round 2  

A good test for Costa. Hall is fast and elusive and if Costa is able to finish him by cutting off the cage and smash******* him that will really raise his stock and send a very clear message to the division.

Not the fight I want to see most, that would be costa vs.romero but I can accept we're a while away from that one especially if Yoel beats whittaker.

Poor Uriah, he could highlight him with something crazy but Costa is the real deal. KO early on.

Value on Hall. I see Costa winning but it's a small play on Hall or no bet.

This is just a bad fight for Hall. Unlike a Mousasi, Costa won't give him any openings to land some mystical levitating mongoose kick or whatever. He doesn't do well against hard hitting pressure fighters and Costa pretty much exemplifies that.

@ImperatorFishrat ..."mystical levitating mongoose kick" is a hilarious way of explaining Uriah Hall's crazy kicks.. That's how I'm gonna explain it to others from now on.. ****'s great.. But I do agree with you. It's a terrible matchup for Hall..

we haven't really seen costa's chin tested much, but hall has some issues when his opponents don't let him be the bully.

I could see Hall picking Costa apart. Costa was getting tired and couldn't finish Oluwale til the 2nd round. Hendricks did a good job with the low kicks. Costa is still green, and all he has going for him is his physical ability combined with confidence and aggression. In any case I hope he gets ktfo.
