Paulo Costa has been picking up Ws left and right. Costa was the first one to overshadow Chimaev’s impending weight issues. Some days back, he’d started refering to Chimaev as ‘Gourmet Chen Chen’.
This is just another slam on Khamzat Chimaev. Costa and Chimaev recently had an altercation at the UFC PI. It’s the public’s consensus that Costa had won considering he was entirely unbothered and considering that Chimaev had waited in front to instigate and then had his entourage call him.
Following the altercation, many fans were excited to see Khamzat Chimaev take on Paulo Costa. However, ‘Borz’ dismissed the idea and claims he has no interest in going toe-to-toe with Costa in the octagon.
But it didn’t end there. Even though Costa was rumored to have been backstage at UFC 279 – he wasn’t instead he was shooting an episode with Henry Cejudo and THe Schmo. At the interview Costa realized that The Schmo had kept Chimaev’s hat that he’d forgotten while doing their show.
Costa was quick to snatch the cap – and proceeded to do unspeakable things to it.
Recently Costa explained Chimaev’s reluctance to engage with him whether it be at the UFC PI or in a sanctioned bout.
