Paulo Costa trolls ‘boring as f**k’ Sean Strickland ahead of UFC 302 middleweight clash

Paulo Costa recently stirred up some social media buzz by trolling fellow UFC middleweight Sean Strickland with a comparison post. Costa’s tweet juxtaposed a photo of himself with Strickland, along with a caption expressing his affection for Mexico. Despite Costa’s jab, Strickland has yet to respond publicly, leaving fans curious about his reaction.

Before his recent loss to Robert Whittaker, Costa had secured a victory against former middleweight champion Luke Rockhold at UFC 278. Following a protracted contract dispute with the UFC, Costa seems determined to increase his activity within the Octagon, aiming to reclaim his former status as a dominant force in the middleweight division.

On the other hand, Strickland caused a major upset by defeating Israel Adesanya for the UFC middleweight title at UFC 293. However, his subsequent loss to Dricus du Plessis halted his three-fight winning streak. Du Plessis is now slated to defend his title against Adesanya in the near future, setting the stage for potential rematches depending on the outcomes of upcoming fights.

With Costa’s evident motivation to regain his previous form and his tactical use of social media to unsettle opponents, the anticipation for his showdown with Strickland is building. If Strickland manages to overcome Costa and du Plessis retains the title, the possibility of a rematch between Strickland and du Plessis looms, adding further intrigue to the middleweight landscape in the UFC.
