Paulo Costa is aware of Luke Rockhold hurling steroid accusations his way.
Costa and Rockhold have been trading barbs on social media. Rockhold even appeared on MMAFighting’s The MMA Hour and he didn’t have kind words for “Borrachinha.”
“You’re just a f*cking b*tch when it comes down to it. Your steroids aren’t working anymore and you got caught up. You’re looking for a way out… Show up and show out. Let’s f*cking go.”

“Luke RockOLD. Too old, retired fighter out of the f*cking ranking. Shut up fragile chin.”
Taking a look at the official UFC middleweight rankings, Costa shares the number four spot with Sean Strickland and Derek Brunson. Rockhold, a former UFC Middleweight Champion, is nowhere to be found in the rankings.
Rockhold has been on a slide in his career. He’s gone 1-3 in his last four outings. All three of those defeats ended in brutal fashion. He was knocked out by Michael Bisping, Yoel Romero, and Jan Blachowicz.
As for Costa, he’s dropped two straight. He received the first loss of his pro MMA career to Israel Adesanya, suffering a second-round TKO back in Sept. 2020. In his next fight, he dropped a unanimous decision to Marvin Vettori.
