Watch The Massive Paulo Costa Light up Pads Ahead of UFC 253
If you're one of the folks who doesn't believe Paulo Costa will be a serious test for Israel Adesanya, this video may change your mind.
Due to how ridiculously jacked Paulo Costa is, there are more than a few people who believe Israel Adesanya will be too fast for the middleweight when they fight. There’s also an opinion that if Costa can’t catch the champ early, he’ll be in trouble later in the fight.
But, while a recent video Costa’s team shared out doesn’t outright dismiss those opinions, it might make some people question them? Or not.

Recently the video below went up on Costa’s YouTube channel and it captures ‘Borrachinha’ tearing into pads and doing some wrestling. One of the more impressive parts of the video, is when the Brazilian fires off a series of very hard and fast kicks in short order.
