After finally settling on a weight class, Paulo Costa and Marvin Vettori are official for Saturday’s main event.
In the days leading up to Friday’s official weigh-ins for UFC Vegas 41, the middleweight contenders—both of whom are coming off failed bids to capture UFC gold—were involved in negotiations to change their scheduled bout to a new weight limit due to Costa having issues making weight. They settled on light heavyweight, which Costa and Vettori successfully hit this morning at 204.5 pounds and 204 pounds respectively.
Costa has agreed to forfeit 20 percent of his purse to Vettori for accommodating the late change.
All 28 fighters competing on Saturday’s card successfully made weight.
