Paulo Costa got fans talking with a promo on social media, but it wasn’t a cool response, but rather ‘WTF did I just watch.’
Costa is slated to take on Israel Adesanya for the UFC middleweight title at the upcoming UFC 253 pay-per-view event on September 19th.
Paulo Costa Releases Bizarre Promo
The title contender released this weird promo on his Instagram account:
Costa was coming off a big win over Yoel Romero at the UFC 241 pay-per-view event. He previously beat Uriah Hall on the preliminary portion of the UFC 226 pay-per-view event in Las Vegas, Nevada. He entered this fight on a 12-fight winning streak.
The champ also beat Romero in his previous bout back at UFC 248. Adesanya became the new UFC middleweight champion when he finished Robert Whittaker at UFC 243 last October by TKO, which marked his previous fight. Before that, he picked up a decision win over Kelvin Gastelum in the co-headliner of the UFC 236 pay-per-view event. The show went down on April 13, 2019 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.
