Randy Costa vs Guido Cannetti scheduled for UFC Fight Night 211

We’ve been informed of a very exciting scrap going down at UFC Fight Night 211, as bantamweight prospects Randy Costa and Guido Cannetti have have paired up together for this event.

UFC Fight Night 211 is to go down on October 1, 2o22, at a to-be-determined venue.

Randy Costa came to the UFC in April of 2019 with a perfect, yet inexperienced record of 4-0 to face Brandon Davis, who was absolutely massive for 135 lbs, and is a natural featherweight.

Though Costa would lose the fight via submission (rear naked choke) at 1:12 of round two, we saw a lot of promise out of him in this outing, and he’d return later that year to KO Boston Salmon with a nasty boxing combination at 2:15 of the opening round.

He’d follow this up with another KO (head kick) victory, this one coming just 41 seconds into the first round over Journey Newson. At this point, Costa was 6-1, all six wins coming via first round knockout.

However, he’d fall short in his last two outings against Adrian Yanez, a fight he was looking absolutely incredible in early on, and then Tony Kelley, losing both bouts via second round TKO.

Guido Cannetti came to the UFC with a record of 6-1 in November of 2014, losing his debut via submission (rear naked choke) at 1:44 of round two. Following this defeat, he’d go 2-4 over his next six outings, securing both victories via unanimous decision, being finished in three of those four defeats.

The other defeat came via split decision in a fight he could’ve easily gotten the nod in, but he’d rebound earlier this year in March with a TKO victory over Kris Moutinho, picking up his first finish inside the octagon, doing so at 2:06 of round one.

For those of you who don’t remember, Moutinho is the man that made his promotional debut against Sean O’Malley on short notice and nearly went all three rounds with him, taking an absurd amount of damage throughout.

Costa has seemed to have a bit of an issue going past the first round; as mentioned above, all six of his wins coming via first round knockout, and all three of his defeats coming in round two. He doesn’t seem to have the grit to push through tense moments, as shown in the past. He’s just not the same fighter once the fight makes it past minute five.

But, that can be a fixable problem, and he’s about as skilled on the feet as anyone in the bantamweight division.

Cannetti on the other hand, though he’s 9-6 as a professional, and though he’s 42 years old, is also a very good striker, and he’s a great athlete too.
