Paulo Costa has responded to UFC president Dana White’s accusations of him lying about their negotiations, adding fuel to the already strained relationship between them.
Despite being scheduled to fight Robert Whittaker, the fight did not materialize due to pay disputes. Costa suggested that he was offered a lower pay, which was denied by White, who called him a “lunatic” and dismissed the claim.
Costa took to social media to hit back at White, suggesting he was the one being delusional. The situation suggests that Costa’s return to the cage may be unlikely in the near future.
