UFC middleweight contender, Costa Philippou has left Team Serra-Longo to train at Bellmore Kickboxing Academy, as first brought to the attention of our own, Steph Daniels in her interview with Matt Serra.

I don't like this at all for Costa, but if my suspicion is correct I don't blame him. I think Costa sky rocketed to the top of the division in large part thanks to being Weidmans primary training partner, I think that helped elevate his game (especially his take down D) & now that they are both at the top of the division they might need to fight soon & I'm sure Costa sees the writing on the wall. Additionally I'm sure he knows Serra will side with Chris since he is the more promising prospect so he might want to go somewhere where he will get more attention; especially now since he's so close to title contention. I just wish he picked a better camp to go to, not the 2nd best camp in Long Island.

Time will tell if this is good or not.

May be a bad decision on his part
