UFC middleweight contender Paulo Costa was not impressed with the UFC on ESPN 14 main event between Robert Whittaker and Darren Till on Saturday, and ‘Borrachinha’ made his feelings known on social media.
Costa cussed both men for putting on a ‘f-ck ugly fight’ and said there’s no way they were training during quarantine.
There’s no possibility those both guys were training during quarantine. I don’t believe that. Fuck ugly fight pic.twitter.com/KEs9oVUH4M— Paulo Costa ( Borrachinha ) (@BorrachinhaMMA) July 26, 2020
“There’s no possibility those both guys were training during quarantine. I don’t believe that. Fuck ugly fight,” Costa posted on Twitter after the fight.
Whittaker, the former UFC middleweight champion, fought Till to a unanimous decision after five hard-fought rounds of back-and-forth action in the main event. ‘The Gorilla’ is thought to have suffered a knee injury in the second round and is expected to undergo surgery in the coming weeks.
As for Costa (13-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC), the Brazilian knockout artist is expected to challenge Israel Adesanya for the middleweight title at UFC 253. The pay-per-view is scheduled to take place on September 19 at a TBD location.
