Costa looked composed in the third and picked his shots, and I can't wait to see him fight again.
That fight can be broken down to before the eye poke and after the eye poke. Tim couldn't see and the fight was restarted. His stand up was sloppy and he started getting tagged so he went for sloppy take downs and even pulled guard. He then got beat down and bled out. I think Tim would take a rematch.
