Robert Whittaker: Paulo Costa Will Show Up At UFC 284

Robert Whittaker has no doubts concerning his fight at UFC 284 in 2023.

Whittaker, a former champion, will face Paulo Costa on February 12 from the RAC Arena in Perth, Australia. The event will feature two title fights, headlined by Islam Makhachev defending against Alexander Volkanovski.

Costa has made comments regarding his status in recent weeks. But Whittaker isn’t buying it.

“This is my side, right? I signed a contract and I’m training my butt off, and I’m starving myself to get down to the weight limit,” he said during a recent interview with Submission Radio. Someone is getting beaten up in February. Okay? Like, what he’s doing, he’s a notorious troll for that sort of stuff. So, I’m not paying too much attention. And I don’t think anybody else should pay too much attention to the dude that walks around with a bottle that says ‘secret juice’ on it.

“Mate, they’re not gonna find anyone, Costa’s gonna take the fight. You guys are thinking into it. This is exactly what he wants. He just wants you talking about it. A hundred percent he’ll be there. If he misses this one, this is the second time we were supposed to fight. And he’s gonna bounce on it? And due to the fact that he’s not happy with his contract? Who is happy with their contract?! Like, just take the fight. Let’s get it on so I can have a holiday.”
