Marvin Vettori punished Paulo Costa for failing to make weight at UFC Vegas 41, fighting for a close points victory over the Brazilian.

The crash was intended to be a middleweight bout, but Costa’s size forced the cap to be changed twice, first raising it to a 195-pound middleweight crash before settling down at light heavyweight.

Vettori set a grueling pace from the first round and absorbed a lot of punishment from the bigger man, but emerged with a unanimous decision victory.

All three judges scored 48-46, watching Vettori overcome an accumulated chaotic fight to walk away with 20 percent of Costa’s fight purse, the Brazilian’s punishment for his ‘trick’.

“I know I have the biggest heart, I know I have the biggest will,” Vettori said. “And when it goes to the fourth and fifth rounds, there’s no way anyone can keep up.”

“ But a lot of people said that he wouldn’t be ready, I think a lot of that was a gimmick. He didn’t want to lose weight, but he actually came quite prepared.

I should have gained weight. It is a respect for all of us.

“ But, you know, I can buy another watch with his money, and I still have the victory, and I’m proud of it. ”

Costa rocked Vettori with some heavy punches, but he was knocked down in the rounds in Las Vegas.
