Check Robert Whittaker’s post hinting that Paulo Costa might be his UFC 299 opponent.

Well, the next year already seems stacked as we already know the first three PPVs of 2024, where Sean Strickland, Alexander Volkanovski, and Sean O’Malley will put their titles on the line. However, not just them; the undercard of their event is also as exciting as the main event, if not more. Adding to the excitement, UFC superstar Robert Whittaker shared a cryptic post on his Instagram, suggesting he might take on Paulo Costa at UFC 299. Let’s dive in to find details about it.


Robert Whittaker vs Paulo Costa at UFC 299?

On Instagram, Whittaker shared a photo of his training session, tagging Paulo Costa on the punching bag. In the caption, he wrote, “Let’s give it another go…#UFC299.” This major hint suggests that Costa vs. Whittaker, the unfinished business, might finally be settled next year. Costa has been indicating a return in the first half of the year.

Whittaker’s last fight was in July when he faced Dricus du Plessis in a middleweight title eliminator. He suffered a shocking loss in the second round. On the other hand, Costa’s last fight was in 2022 against Luke Rockhold, and fans have been eagerly awaiting his return.

Although Costa was set to return at UFC 294 this year against Khamzat Chimaev, a last-minute injury forced Whittaker to pull out of the fight. Now, it seems he might settle the unfinished business with Chimaev later, but first he will fight Whittaker at UFC 299.
