Former UFC Middleweight champion Robert Whitaker will face for title challenger Paulo Costa on April 17th. The fight will headline UFC Fight Night on ESPN. Whitaker has won his last two fights since losing the title to Israel Adesanya at UFC 243 with wins over Jared Cannonier and Darren Till. Costa has not fought since losing to Adesanya by TKO at UFC 253 last September. If Whitaker wins he could be in line for a rematch, however Costa needs a few more wins before he gets another chance at the champ.
