‘Hero made it’- Paulo Costa hails Paddy Pimbett for silencing his trolls by making weight, yet again

Paulo Costa was impressed by Paddy Pimblett’s weigh in ahead of UFC London, and proclaimed him as ‘weight cutting master’

Brazilian middleweight fighter Paulo Costa is on a strict ‘Paddy the Baddy’ diet regime having developed a beautiful comradery with his fellow peer. Costa had previously expressed his fascination for Pimblett’s policy of living life full size when not in fight camps, and eating to his heart’s content.

Pimblett has a reputation for swelling up in pounds, quickly after his fights owing to his love for junk food. ‘Baddy’ has previously claimed that he’d rather be fat and happy than trimmed and sad. He is often seen out of fight camps completely out of shape. This has gotten MMA fans, experts, and fighters all worried and talking about the grave effect it has on the body. 

Paulo Costa has transformed into a Twitter sensation in recent times, and the fans have acclimated themselves with 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.

Costa has also had his issues with making weight in the past, and had reached out to Pimblett to help him make weight. A rather cordial Paddy, welcomed Costa with open arms, and the pair have tweeted back at each other, several times in the past. Ahead of UFC London, at the weigh-ins, Pimblett muzzled his doubters by making weight and calling out his trolls.

Reacting to the weigh-in video, Costa wrote on Twitter, “The man, the Hero made it. I’m following my diet plan as well. Master of weight @theufcbaddy”

‘I’m excited’ – Paulo Costa reacts after the press conference between Jake Paul and Hasim Rahman Jr.

Amongst the many criticisms that Youtuber turned boxer Jake Paul faces was allegations that he cherry-picks opponents to build up his career. Tommy Fury has the pedigree of boxing in his family history, and the sport runs in his veins. This prompted fans that he will probably be Paul’s biggest test so far. But despite many attempts by the Paul and Fury camp to bring this fight together, the fight has gone back to rack and ruin, leaving the American opponent less. Little did combat fans know that when Jake Paul said ‘Anyone, Any place, Any time’, he actually meant it.

Pullulating ringster Jake Paul will face his toughest test to date when he collides with ‘tough as knuckles’ Hasim Rahman Jr. atop the Showtime boxing pay-per-view (PPV) card scheduled for Sat., Aug. 6, 2022 inside Madison Square Garden in New York City. As for Hasim, he is 12-1 as a pro and coming off a fifth-round technical knockout loss to James McKenzie Morrison last April in Las Vegas.

The first press conference between both the fighters was everything you expected and beyond. From career digs, to issuing threats of tarnishing family legacy, the press conference delivered on all cylinders.

While Jake Paul promised to be a harbinger of doom by claiming to ‘end his family’s legacy’, his rival asseverated that he’ll finish ‘this facade he calls a career’

Thoroughly entertained by the exchange, and thrilled by the prospect of this fight, UFC middleweight fighter Paulo Costa expressed his excitement on Twitter by saying, ‘Im really excited to see this sh*t’
