UFC 298 results: Robert Whittaker outstrikes Paulo Costa

Robert Whittaker still has plenty of fight left in him.

After a disappointing loss to current middleweight champion Dricus du Plessis in his last outing, Whittaker had something to prove in his return at UFC 298. Whittaker showed that he’s still just as dangerous as ever as he engaged in a three-round war on the feet with Paulo Costa before ultimately earning a unanimous decision victory.

Nothing came easy but Whittaker’s output and accuracy just kept tagging Costa round after round. He also did a lot of damage with a blistering series of calf kicks that left golf-ball sized swelling in Costa’s shin.

In the end, the judges scored the fight 30-27, 29-28 and 29-28 for Whittaker to get the nod.
