UFC Fight Night: Paulo Costa vs. Marvin Vettori | Time, live stream, fight card, how to watch ...

It’s a quest for redemption as Paulo Costa face Marvin Vettori in a headlining bout at UFC Vegas 41 at UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Saturday, October 23 (10/23/2021).

UFC Fight Night: Costa vs. Vettori will be broadcast exclusively on ESPN+The main fight card starts at 4:00 p.m. ET with the preliminary bouts at 1:00 p.m. ET.

In the main event, Paulo “Borrachinha” Costa (13-1-0) meets Marvin “The Italian Dream” Vettori (17-5-1) in a bout where both fighters are coming off streak smashing, main event losses to Israel Adesanya.

These two title challengers are both in it to prove who deserves a second chance, but for fan favorite Costa, the recent loss stings more, as it was his first professional loss in the UFC.

The bout will be fought at catchweight, since Costa, otherwise a middleweight fighter, revealed he would not make weight for the fight on Wednesday.

“I don’t care for weight or who I face on Saturday,” Costa said. “I just came here to Vegas. I’m doing a lot of stuff, a lot of interviews, and I’m looking for Saturday to do an amazing fight.”

The co-main event features a lightweight bout between Grant Dawson (17-1-0) and Rick Glenn (22-6-1). In the buildup to the event, Dawson issued a rare UFC apology to his opponent after making a joke that rubbed Glenn the wrong way earlier in the week.
