The UFC just announced a mouthwatering middleweight matchup for UFC 230 in Madison Square Garden on November 3.
Massive middleweight matchup out of the nowhere!
Paulo Costa will apparently get his wish to fight the very best as he gets matched up with number-1 contender Yoel Romero for a bout that promises to be one of the year’s most violent spectacles.

It was thought that Yoel Romero would never fight at 185lbs again – with many pegging him for a top-contender battle at light-heavyweight but following this announcement, one would have to assume that this matchup was just too good to pass up on for the UFC brass.
UFC 230 is already looking set to feature the rematch between Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman and has been confirmed to host the pairing of Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza and David Branch.
November 3 can’t come quick enough!
