UFC 302 live blog: Sean Strickland vs. Paulo Costa

This is the UFC 302 live blog for Sean Strickland vs. Paulo Costa, the five round co-main event middleweight matchup on Saturday in Newark, NJ.

At the start of 2023, Strickland was completely written off by nearly everyone in the MMA community, but what a difference one year can make. After two good wins, Strickland stepped in on short notice to face Israel Adesanya for the middleweight title, and “Tarzan” pulled off one of the great MMA upsets, beating Adesanya from pillar to post for 25 minutes to take the belt. Strickland then promptly dropped the title to Dricus du Plessis this past January, and now the former champion hopes to put himself next in line for another crack at the title with a win on Saturday.
