Costa, couldn't care less about what happens to him either. I don't like or dislike him, completely neutral really, don't really care for the guy.
Would you still be upset with him if the judges awarded Lombard the victory? I feel like there would be no ammo in that case, it would have just been seen as a poor fight on Boetsch's behalf.
I just don't think Costa deserves a top 5 guy because of this win, a rematch would really clear things up.

The problem is nobody knows Larkin and they are trying to build Phillipou into a draw, putting Cyprus on the MMA map! Same reason they never cut Alessio Sakara and they felt the need to give Pascall Krauss as DLC on the UFC game.
Maybe a fight with Rich Franklin? Big name, not so high in the rankings.
