Unsure of UFC contract status, Paul Costa may weigh options: 'I'm happy to be here, but I need to see what's best for us'

SALT LAKE CITY — Paul Costa may have one fight left on his UFC contract. His UFC contract may not have any wiggle room either.

After defeating Luke Lockhold at UFC 278, Costa (13-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) said the path to overtaking is a little blurry right now. Not sure if his promotional deal is in place, Costa said several options are on the horizon.

“We had a lot of good opportunities coming up,” Costa told reporters including MMA Junkie. “We know boxing is going well. We have some companies that are doing really well, even in Brazil. Brazil has a big show there, a fight music show. We have the most popular guys in Brazil fighting there… We have a lot of great opportunities there, but UFC is a great company. I’m happy to be here, but I need to see what’s best for us.”

If he really To stay, UFC 283 in Rio de Janeiro in December appears to be the best option for the Brazilian, who wants to take part in his first promotion in his home country since March 2020.

“I could fight in a few months, of course, maybe the next two months,” Costa said. “I want to fight in December or the end of November. But I know we have UFC Rio in Brazil in January, so maybe I can wait a little longer. I don’t know if this is my last fight. I need to fight with [my team] ), my guy verifies. If it’s the last game, so I don’t have more on my contract, I need to sit down, focus, and see what’s best for my future. If I have one more, let Let’s see what Dana White has in store for me. I’m pretty sure they’ve done a fantastic job of crafting exciting fights. They know how to eat.”
