Paul Costa is a talented fighter and whether he has reached his peak or has yet to show his best only time will tell. But we do know for sure that he’s in his prime as an internet personality. In his last fight, Costa, who fights on paper at UFC middleweight, actually fought at light heavyweight due to his weight issues. Costa not only lost a lot of fight money, but also lost the fight. The fight was scheduled for a five round main event Marvin Vettori.
Now Costa should compete against his return Luke Rockhold on the August 20, 2022 middleweight fight card where he assures the UFC he will gain weight this time. Former Strikeforce and former UFC Middleweight Champion Rockhold returns to the Octagon after 3 years. Rockhold last fought at light heavyweight where he unfortunately lost in the second round of his 3 round contest against the former UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz. The stakes are high for both Costa and Rockhold.

Paulo Costa is confident he will gain weight with Paddy Pimblett and Charles Oliveira at his side on the scales
Recently, Chael Suns, MMA legend and former UFC middleweight and light heavyweight contender, took to his YouTube channel where he talked about all things MMA. He also commented on a possibility that Costa would lose weight and Sonnen is pretty sure the former would suffer from unprofessionalism, followed by a backlash from those around because the latter think that as humans we grow and don’t vice versa.
Costa responded by posting a screenshot of an article written about Sonnen’s comments, a picture of UFC Lightweight Paddy Pimblett binge eating when he’s not fighting and a picture of UFC Lightweight at #1 Karl Oliveira. He uploaded the images to Twitter and wrote in the caption “Uncle Chael is all right. I have Charles Scale and Pimblet as nutritionists [emojis of different desserts]”
What do you think of Costa’s hilarious response to Sonnen’s criticism while poking fun at Pimblett’s habit and Oliveira’s situation during the weigh-in of Oliveira’s final fight at UFC 274? Seriously, do you think Costa will be honest this time and gain weight? Who do you think will win the fight between Costa and Rockhold? A win over Rockhold will bring great joy to Costa as it will see him earn his first win over a former World Champion.
