Paulo Costa wants Israel Adesanya tested by USADA for estrogen after latest hairstyle


Israel Adesanya tried out a new hairstyle and Paulo Costa was not impressed one bit

UFC star Paulo Costa has blasted Middleweight Champion Israel Adesanya for a new pink hairstyle.

The Stylebender is known to try out different colours and styles, and this time took a different route. Adesanya normally rocks regular hair while fighting, but has turned Super Saiyan (blond) during the coronavirus outbreak.

However, the undefeated MMA star decided to try something completely different. He went all pink and shared the video of the same on social media.

Costa was not impressed one bit with this and took another shot at Adesanya claiming the champion needed to be tested for estrogen:

This isn’t the first time Costa has hit out at Adesanya on social media. He has claimed that the Nigerian-New Zealand star is a blot on the Middleweight division and he would easily defeat him.

Costa vs Adesanya set for UFC 253

Costa will finally get his hands on Adesanya at UFC 253. The pair have slugged it out on interviews and social media, but this battle will take place soon.

Adesanya vs Costa is one of the most heated rivalries in the UFC and it will be interesting to see how it goes.

Costa is an all-out puncher and 11 knockout wins in his MMA career. The Brazilian is also undefeated in the sport, just like Adesanya and last defeated Yoel Romero.

Adesanya, for his part, also has 14 knockout wins in his MMA career and his last fight was also against Romero.

The Stylebender won the title from Robert Whittaker and has taken on all comers in the division. Adesanya vs Costa comes on the heels of another big rivalry in Stipe Miocic vs Daniel Cormier at UFC 252.

That fight is for the UFC Heavyweight Championship and it will be Cormier’s last clash before he retires.
