“Humm make sense, No actually doesn’t make sense” is a set of actual tweets posted by former UFC title challenger Paulo Costa which probably sums up his Twitter activity. The Brazilian often shares bizarre things on the platform, from Dana White gossip to flat earth content. The latest for the Brazilian is a series of politically charged tweets.
The 30 year old professional fighter recently expressed his admiration for Russian president, Vladimir Putin. In a since deleted tweet Costa told his audience:
“Vladimir Putin Putin is not a weak leader like Biden or Macron. He’s a aformer military man who has already been stabbed in the belly and survived. He is another level of world leader.
Do you know another Leader who has the same characteristics past? ”
He attached a picture of Brazilian president Bolsonaro to the tweet.
This tweet comes after the popular Borrachinha claimed he was Russian. Recently, ‘The Eraser’ also tweeted cryptic tweets in Cyrillic font that confused the fans. In the tweet accompanied by a Russian flag, Costa suggested his fans live every day with the same intensity he does.
“Live the day intensely [Russian flag]” as translated by Google Translate.
A fan responded to the tweet by pointing out that Costa is a Brazilian, then ‘Borrachinha’ then making another claim that he’s partly Russian.
“I am Russian-Brazilian.” Costa replied to the fan, translated from Russian by Google Translate.
Costa also retweeted a tweet depicting Vladimir Putin as a black man – safe to say photoshopped.
Despite the peculiar tweet, Costa has seen in the picture in a good shape and seems to look forwards to another fight soon.
Costa is currently on a two-fight losing streak, with a stoppage loss against the champion Israel Adesanya back in 2020 and a decision loss against fellow former title challenger, Marvin ‘The Italian Dream”.
The former contestant of “The Ultimate Fighter” is rumored to be in talks for a showdown against former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold in June. No word yet on when the wine loving Costa plans to switch to Vodka.
