Raul Rosas Jr made waves earlier this month when it was announced the UFC would be signing him. Rosas jr is just 17 years old – just under a year younger than UFC’s previous youngest signee Chase Hooper.
Rosas Jr impressed with his performance on Tuesday Night Contender Series and made the headlines around the globe with some questioning the medical side of things considering that it’s medically established that the brain is still developing at 17.
The fans were mostly enthused by the prospect and White was quick to slam doubters.
“I’ve never seen anything like i,”
“He’s absolutely, positively talented. He’s special. He’s different.”
But Rosas Jr also has a particular physique – one that lands itself to becoming a meme so naturally UFC’s biggest Meme account, Paulo Costa tweeted about it and he was not as nice.
Costa reshared a fanedit of Rosas jr making fun of his physique.
Costa accompanied the video with the caption “You all are bad people. Stay away from me pls”
While the video is kind of funny we can’t help but wonder if a teenager would take something like this more personally. That being said Rosas Jr’s star is on the rise. He’s garnered unmatched media attention thanks to his exuberant youth.
Costa is somewhat of a famous troll on twitter, he’s previously shared photoshopped images of Dana White and Rose Namajunas that raised quite a bit of dust. Not to mention that time he tweeted a clip of Dana White’s mother slamming him.
But Costa had buyer’s remorse regarding this particular jibe at UFC president Dana White and promptly deleted it.
Since then he’s followed up on agitating the UFC by sharing the following photoshop of Dana White along with UFC strawweight champion Rose Namajunas.
Of course Costa didn’t include the original picture.
ESPN Brazil even thought the image was real.
