Paulo Costa has given his reaction to accusations that he uses performance enhancing drugs.
Costa is slated to take on Israel Adesanya for the UFC middleweight title at the upcoming UFC 253 pay-per-view event on September 26th.
We noted last month that the middleweight champion believes Costa is using PEDs.
In a recent interview with TSN in Canada, Costa denied this belief as his physique is all about genetics.

“You know it is a joke to me. It is all that he has to say about me. I have a great team by my side, the best of the best, I have good doctors, good trainers, good condition, and physical trainers, I have a bunch of very, very high-quality people around me,” Costa said. “And, I believe I have some kind of genetics that help me and I love to train and work out. When you put all these ingredients and mix them, you have a great result. That is why.”
