  • Paulo Costa claims he is on course to becoming MMA’s first billionaire shortly after inking a new deal with the UFC
  • The Brazilian is likely to face either Robert Whittaker or Khamzat Chimaev

UFC middleweight contender Paulo Costa has hinted at a massive new UFC deal. Apparently, his new contract could make him the first MMA fighter to become a billionaire.

Quite a claim

Earlier this month, Costa took a dig at the UFC over contract and pay disputes. He ultimately claims the promotion lowballs Brazilian fighters and said that he had turned down a new deal worth $500,000. UFC president Dana White, on the other hand, dismissed Costa’s accusations and called the middleweight a “f**king lunatic.”

A few weeks later, it appears that “Borranchinha” and the UFC had already settled any issue as Costa has officially inked a new deal with the promotion. And now, Costa seems absolutely satisfied with his contract and everything that was injected in his new agreement with the UFC.

Without divulging further details, the No. 5 middleweight contender declared he is about to be a billionaire and make history in the sport.

“This MTFK gonna be the first to make 1 Billion dollars in MMA . #SecretJuice mark my words mtfkrs,” Costa tweeted.

Big fights could be on the way

From the looks of it, Costa seemed to have secured a massive deal. This could also mean that the Brazilian will be booked against the biggest names in the UFC.

As it stands, “Borrachinha” is being linked to a fight with two of the best fighters in the promotion. A showdown with former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker has long been making headlines but nothing is concrete to this day. Aside from Whittaker, top welterweight contender and UFC rising star Khamzat Chimaev is also in the conversation.

Costa has managed to put himself back into the win column after dominating former UFC middleweight champion Luke Rockhold at UFC 278. Prior to that, “Borrachinha” was on a two-fight losing streak, one against Marvin Vettori, and the other was his title fight loss to then-middleeweight champion Israel Adesanya at UFC 253.
