UFC 278 video: Paulo Costa says ‘f*ck USADA’ as he, Luke Rockhold make weight

SALT LAKE CITY – There were no issues on the weigh-in scale for Paulo Costa or Luke Rockhold in advance of the UFC 278 co-main event.

Costa (13-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) and Rockhold (16-5 MMA, 6-4 UFC) successfully made the middleweight limit on Friday morning, setting the stage for their anticipated clash.

Former title challenger Costa was 185.5 pounds – as he guaranteed he would be earlier in the week – while former UFC and Strikeforce champ Rockhold also 185.5 pounds for his first fight in more than three years.

Costa, however, was very angry when he revealed he’d been drug tested by USADA in the midst of his cut.

Watch the video above to see Costa and Rockhold weigh in for UFC 278.

UFC 278 takes place Saturday at Vivant Arena. The main card airs on ESPN/ANC following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.
