Return To Fight Island

In the return to Fight Island, the main-event seems to be a bull and mandator-style fight, as Isreal Adesayna takes on Paulo Costa as the middleweight strap is up for grabs. This was listed as one of my dream matchups the last time the UFC went to Abu Dhabi.

Paulo Costa showed up to weigh-ins wearing his Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt, WATCH HERE. I wonder if he is tipping his hand at a game plan to grapple with Isreal. It would make sense, we haven’t seen much of a ground game from Izzy other than when he pops right back up. Paulo, on the other hand, leaned on his Jiu-Jitsu in the Jungle Fight promotion and on UFCs Ultimate Fighter Brazil.

These will be the matches you can find on the next episode of Show Me The Slip. But I’ll let you know it here and now Dominick Reyes is winning and holding that Light Heavy Weight Belt until Jon Jones comes back to 205 to rematch for it back.
