Paulo Costa mocks Sean Strickland with an old picture of ‘Tarzan’

Sean Strickland and Paulo Costa are both known to speak from the shoulder and have emerged as quite a ‘Tweleb‘ in recent times. Apart from being entertaining inside the cage, they are both known for their obdurate and callous personality. Strickland resorts to harsh criticism of society or any subject matter that bothers him. On the other hand, Costa uses parody and self-mockery as ways to engage with his fans. Most recently, Costa shared a throwback image of Strickland with the American with long hair.

Paulo Costa has transformed into a Twitter sensation in recent times, and the fans have acclimated themselves to this new approach. The Brazilian is often seen taking funny digs at fighters, engaging with others from the roaster, and posting situational references to trending topics.

‘The Eraser’ and Sean Strickland have gone back and forth on several occasions in the past through rhetorical comments, and insulting tweets.

He posted a tweet stating that Strickland looked gorgeous with long hair, and he would’ve considered pairing up with the American if he wasn’t already dating his manager/girlfriend Tamara. He captioned the post:

“Damn She is hot as fuck🔥 If I haven’t Tamara I would smash “

Sean Strickland blasts Ronda Rousey for being vocal about her suicidal tendencies

Sean Strickland recently spoke about his dislike for Ronda Rousey. According to the American, the former bantamweight champion vocalized her suicidal tendencies on the Ellen Show. She felt these strong feelings after losing her belt to Holly Holm at UFC 193.

Since then, Rousey has only fought once, and lost to Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 by knockout in the very first round. She transitioned to professional wrestling after the loss and has been a mainstay in the WWE.

Speaking about Rousey’s comments, Strickland believes that it is partly her fault why so many young people feel suicidal in today’s time.

“I explained why I hate Ronda Rousey, why I find she is everything that’s wrong with the fu**ing world. She was on the news, it was fucking everywhere. I don’t know when suicide became cool but it became cool, like they made a Netflix show ‘13 Reasons.’ Everybody’s fuc**ng depressed, everybody is suicidal, and let me fuc***g tell you guys, it is not fuc**ng cool. Depression is like cancer, it’s fuc**ng terminal. It’s like herpes, you might not have it but you always fuc**ng have it and it’s waiting to fuc**ng come out.”

He added:

“Suicidal thoughts, for the people who have it, it’s even fu**ing worse. You fixate on it, you dwell on it. You start thinking about how you’re gonna do it. You start thinking about where you’re gonna do it. You start think about how your people are gonna take it. You really fantasize about it and it’s fuc***g miserable. It’s not a fleeting thought because you lost a fight. And I hate Ronda Rousey because she used something so fu**ed up and so serious as a ‘but I overcame it’ strong moment, when it’s fu**ing not.”

He posted the video on his Instagram channel with the captions ,“I really hate podcast lol I’m too unstable to have clear conversations as I speak lol.”
