Good for him, hopefully can get his career and life back on track. Hopefully the UFC offers him a goodbye fight
I'd be happy for him to get that last fight (the farewell fight), and him vs Cerrone, after Cerrone's last showing, is probably even more worth doing now.
Edit: I doubt very much that he gets that one last fight. Think his and the ufc's friendship is a little fried at this point.

Got a lucky decision against Yoel, f’ed by Israel, pulled out against Rob. Beaten a journeyman, dude who was finished and who else? Costa is massively over-rated oaf.

I agree that UFC fighters are underpaid, but using the Tyron/Paul fight as the basis doesn't make sense. The only reason Tyron is getting paid well, is because he's fighting a celebrity with 15 million followers.

You either need to be famous yourself or be fighting someone famous in order to paid well. Of which Costa is neither.

Can't compare them, in the UFC everyone on the card gets paid better than an average salary, main card fighters even opening the card can get a couple hundred K.

Boxing the main even gets everything and the undercard fighters get their parking stamped.
