Paulo Costa has never lost in the UFC and is headed for the best of all time

Paulo Costa is one of the new stars of UFC and from the world of mixed martial arts, so there is a huge expectation of what you can do. At 29, the Brazilian is preparing to face his greatest challenge in his career, since on September 19 he will face the champion Israel Adesanya. This will be the case in a duel valid for the middleweight title of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Clearly, the most difficult contest of his entire career.

Nowadays, Paulo “Borrachinha” Costa He has a record of 13 wins (11 by KO, 1 by submission and 1 by Decision) and has beaten rivals such as Yoel Romero, Uriah Hall and Johny Hendricks. But, although many do not believe it, the Brazilian has lost in the octagon of UFC. To detail the story we go back to 2014, when the reality show “The Ultimate Fighter Brasil 3” was made. On that occasion, Coast, from Wanderlei Silva’s team, faced Márcio Alexandre Jr., nicknamed “Lyoto”, for the 1/4 final of the tournament.

In a two-round match, extendable to 3 in the event of a tie, Costa fell by Divided Decision against his opponent. He knew how to better distribute energy during the fight, since “Borrachinha” gave his full potential and strength in a single round, looking very tired in the rest of the fight. Obviously that situation played against him for the next round, so the cards ended up leaving him without victory. However, he has not yet been defeated by knockout.

Now why do you still consider yourself undefeated Paulo CostaBeing lost? The reason is that the combat in the reality show “The Ultimate Fighter” is considered as an exhibition and not as official. This is precisely why they do not influence the official record. Although he has a defeat in his career, it is not official and does not change the story of one of the best fighters today. His duel against Adesanya will be one of the most watched in recent times, clashing two that may be a legend of mixed martial arts.

Long time, Paulo Costa, a Brazilian mixed martial arts fighter (MMA), has assured in an interview that he will donate his brain when he dies. The idea is for them to investigate the brain damage that comes with being a professional fighter in this sport. The South American is concerned about the terrible injuries they suffer when being within this discipline and made it clear that he will not fight beyond the age of 36. In this way, the news has moved the entire world.
