Luke Rocold tears up Paulo Costa in an oratory rhetoric filled with swear words; Costa promises retirement at UFC 278 – MMA Fighting

It’s been more than three years since then Luke Rockhold He appeared on stage at a UFC press conference, but the one-time middleweight champion made up for lost time in a swear-filled sermon that targeted the opponent. Paulo Costa.

Rockhold, the co-leader at UFC 278 on Saturday, seized the main event spot during his trade-offs with Costa, first accusing the Brazilian of doing everything he could to avoid this fight.

“This mommy ****** didn’t want to go to battle in the first place,” said Rockhold. “UFC forced him to shave him and then delayed it twice, month after month and all the cosmetic bulls he did. You little ****, shut up.”

Costa smiled in response as he mocked Rockhold’s claims while mocking the tone of the rhetoric from his 37-year-old opponent.

“Come on, this guy is too old to say that kind of bull***. You’re too old to say that kind of bull***,” Costa said.

“He can say this bulls***. I don’t feed on an old man like him. It doesn’t matter on the day of the fight. We’ll be close in the same cage, it’s just him and me and we’ll see who has more energy, who has more strength and will to win this battle.”

UFC President Dana White declined to ask a reporter whether Rockhold’s accusation was true, in response, “Who gives as a ***? They made it here.”

During a subsequent exchange, Costa mocked the outfit Rockhold wore on stage, adding that the former champ was trying to dress like a “teenager”. The veteran American kickboxing academy fighter responded back.

“I am old, I am young. What am I?” Rockhold shouted. “Shut up f*** up.”

Swinging back and forth did not slow down – Rockhold did his part, answering almost everything Costa said on the microphone.

One particularly hot moment came when Rockhold questioned Costa’s desire to win in the face of adversity. The former champ asked him how much he weighed less than 24 hours before stepping on the scale with a goal of reaching 186 pounds or less.

“Have you ever dealt with adversity?” Rockhold said before referring to Costa’s infamous weight lost in a Previous match against Marvin Vittori. “One time you’ve dealt with adversity you’ve missed out on 20lbs.******.

My question is what is your weight? We all want to know. Will you gain weight? Will you gain a lot of weight? “

Costa, who only spoke in English during the press conference, simply replied “f*** you” to Rockhold before making his prediction about how their fight would end.

“I’m in my prime,” he said. “I will deal with this old man on Saturday. He seems uncomfortable because he knows he is going to face a monster. He already knows. Look at him, he is uncomfortable. I will retire him on Saturday.”

Once the press conference wrapped, Costa and Rokold stomped each other on stage with the UFC President Dana White Willing to stay in between. However, no altercation occurred, with Costa telling Rockhold to “keep calm” as they came face-to-face for the first time during the week of the fight.

The middleweights will have another one on Friday at the festive scales before they finally crash into the cage on Saturday at UFC 278.
