However, that wasn't the case and Costa was eventually finished-off by The Last Stylebender via second-round TKO.
Following the loss, Costa took to social media and promised that he will bounce back stronger, and even called for a rematch against Adesanya. While the rematch is unlikely at the moment, Borrachinha could have a tough task ahead of himself as he has been put on notice by Derek Brunson yet again.
