In the end it didn't help Costa as he seemed to slow a bit toward the end of most rounds allowing Vettori, who pressed forward all evening with a boxing heavy attack, to take control. Though Costa rocked him in the second round with a head kick, Vettori recovered for a takedown, When they returned to their feet, Costa eye poked him which caused referee Jason Herzog to take a point. Vettori continued to press forward through the third and fourth rounds though Costa came alive in the fifth landing some vicious body shots. But it wasn't enough to change the outcome as Vettori lead 48-46 on all three scorecards.
