It Seems Paulo Costa Was Really Irritated By Kelly Slater\u2019s Comments! Paulo Costa defeated Uriah Hall via second-round knockout at UFC 226, improving his UFC score to 4-0 and MMA score to impressive 12-0. \u00a0But the greatest surfer of all time, Kelly Slater, wrote something provocative on Instagram that really made Paulo Costa angry. (via MMAFighting.com) If you check the official USADA website, since his appearance in the UFC back in 2017, Paulo Costa was tested 19 times! What an impressive score! And he has never failed a single test! Costa\u2019s anger is justified, and he even called Kelly Slater stupid. \u201cKelly Slater talked too much, said stupid things,\u201d Costa told MMA Fighting. \u201cHe doesn\u2019t understand how the anti-doping system works in the UFC, he doesn\u2019t know how USADA works, doesn\u2019t understand the USADA policy of testing any fighter at any moment anywhere in the world, blood, and urine. \u201dWe do random tests all the time, so if someone says a UFC fighter is fighting on the juice, to me that someone is completely ignorant about MMA, UFC, anti-doping and USADA.\u201d Paulo Costa has been hearing such comments since he made his UFC debut, so Kelly Slater is not the first man who attacked him. It looks like many people simply can\u2019t forgive success and 12 finishes in 12 fights. However, Costa says he does care about comments. \u201cIt does bother me because people talk without knowing,\u201d Costa said. \u201cThey judge me because I have a good physique, an excellent condition, and think I got this by cheating instead of hard work, diet, effort and sacrifice. I keep working really hard, so it bothers me because they diminish my work and effort. But I know where my results come from, so my conscience is clear.\u201d Paulo Costa wanted a fight with the former UFC Middleweight champion Chris Weidman as soon as he won Uriah Hall. Israel Adesanya\u2019s name continues to appear since he called for the Hall-Costa winner after his victory over Brad Tavares. The best Nigerian-born fighter is also a striker, and this might be the kind of war fans want to see. But Costa is extremely sure about his qualities. \u201cI asked for a fight with Weidman because he\u2019s ranked higher,\u201d Costa said. \u201cFans might wanna see me fight Adesanya because we\u2019re two exciting fighters. Adesanya is a striker and so am I, and that\u2019s what fans like. We\u2019re both undefeated. If I were a fan I would also like to see that fight, but the best scenario possible is a fight with Weidman. Not because it\u2019s the easier fight, but because it takes me higher. \u201cI still believe I\u2019m the most powerful striker in my division. Dare I say, even at light heavyweight,\u201d Costa continued, adding that he\u2019s open to moving up to 205 pounds one day in the future. \u201cI\u2019m sure that if I fought Adesanya he would get knocked out, I believe in the first round. Weidman has good chances of being knocked out as well.\u201d Paulo Costa has finally recovered from a biceps injury. He could fight Uriah Hall earlier this year if the injury didn\u2019t happen. The Eraser hopes for the fight versus Chris Weidman in November. He also believes it might happen at UFC 230, in Madison Square Garden. \u201cI want to come back, fix the holes,\u201d Costa said, \u201cand work on my wrestling to keep the fight standing and knock Weidman out in November.\u201d What do you think, who is Costa\u2019s next opponent? Do you really think Paulo Costa has chances versus such a good fighter like Chris Weidman? Or the showdown of strikers would be a better solution for entertainment?
