Paulo Costa has been feuding with welterweight behemoth Khamzat Chimaev. Most recently, the pair got into an altercation at the UFC Performance Institute and both fighters hurled insults at each other. Costa detailed the squabble in an interview with Full Send MMA and unveiled new glasses mocking the Chechen.
Brazilian middleweight Paulo Costa has emerged as a Twitter sensation in recent times with his satirical content and self-parody. Costa labeled Khamzat Chimaev a ‘fake-gangster’ and dubbed him ‘Gourmet Chechen’.
Detailing the recent incident between the two, ‘The Eraser’ warned Chimaev to watch his back. He then pulled out his brand new glasses that read ‘Gourmet Chenchen is scared’:
“He’s not a gangster. Wait, I have something. He’s a gourmet Chenchen gangster, fake gangster. And I bring this new glass.”
Displaying the glasses, Costa threatened ‘Borz’ that he’s willing to fight him if they cross paths again:
“Watch out. Watch your back. I can fight you anywhere, anytime, any place.”
Costa was at the UFC PI training with Nate Diaz’s teammate Jake Shields when the incident transpired. Costa is coming off a unanimous decision victory against former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold at UFC 278.
