Is Cage Titans Randy Costa the new Owner of ‘Most Brutal KO’ in Promotion History?
Exclusive Post-Fight Interview: Randy Costa
Deep inside the walls of Plymouth Memorial Hall in the historic town of Plymouth, MA, 15 bouts and five title fights graced fans of the New England mixed martial arts. On top of delivering a night of great fights, Cage Titans 40 featured one of New England’s young and quickly rising stars, Randy Costa.
Costa first made an appearance in the professional ranks at Cage Titans 39. The event served as an inauguration to a continued journey. He first appeared on the New England MMA radar when he made his amateur debut at Cage Titans 18. After three amateur bouts, Costa retired his amateur status and began a long layoff spanning nearly four years.
Upon his return, he continued the work he began years ago. Only two fights into his professional career and Costa has spent less than one minute inside the cage. His total cage time including five combined amateur and pro bouts adds up to 8:29. This most recent performance was the shortest fight of his young career, penciling in at 11 seconds.
Quick Fight Breakdown
There wasn’t much to this main card matchup. Costa threw four strikes before his opponent was on the floor lifeless. The first strike was actually a decent low leg kick from his opponent Kenny Lewis. From there the only one throwing limbs was Costa. ‘The Zohan’ used a question mark kick that scraped his toes across Lewis’ face to keep him against the fence. A few seconds later he unleashed one of his deadly kicks. With incredible speed and power behind it, the shin of Costa firmly stamped itself on the chin of Lewis.
With that finish, Randy Costa asserted himself as the potential new owner of ‘Most Brutal Knockout’ in Cage Titans history.
The next step for the rising New England prospect is staying active. Costa is looking to compete on his third consecutive Cage Titans card.
“There’s no such thing as fight camp for me,” he told MMASucka after the fight. “I’m always training. Always getting ready. Making (bantamweight) was a breeze, just like I said it would be. I train hard every single day, I haven’t had a cheat day in like four years, I don’t play, man… I’m going to go home, go on vacation for a couple weeks. I’ll be training on vacation getting ready for the next fight which will likely be in November at Cage Titans.”
