    Dude, I didn’t say surfing was easy and it wasn’t skillfull but Im pretty sure I’m not in the minority’s here- there are better athletes around than surfers.

    Pussy surfer? Surfing is MUCH more dangerous than mma, particularly at Slater’s level. He’s also one of the most dominant pro athletes in history.

    This guy rides 20-30 metre waves, imagine turning around and seeing a mountain moving towards you, doesn't give a fuck about you, will tear you to fucking shreds in seconds, there's nothing 'pussy' about it.

    You've obviously never surfed before,...one paddle into a wave like 'Mavericks' and you'll die of fear just by looking at the wave.

    I was pretty skeptical of Costa and remain so, but there is method beyond pure physicality. He has decent footwork, can walk through decent work, and has a nice punch selection both up and down (which is genuinely rare in MMA, I think). He can be hit by just about anything, which is a massive concern against real punchers, but there are a lot of top fighters who don't have that counter punching ability with power to take advantage of that. If he can keep fights standing (still largely to be seen against genuine grapplers at 85), then he can do real damage. Still, his career could be a short one considering he's never seen a punch he didn't like to eat.

    What about skateboarding, fringe sport? Last I checked, it's a multi million dollar industry, don't remember watching a skateboard pay per view, ever, so how can it be so popular if it's not on PPV?

    So your logic is if a sport isn't on pay per view it's a fringe sport, therefore not many people do it, right?

    That is absolutely retarded, which you clearly are.

    What the fuck are you talking about.

    Fans of this sport are such childish, hateful pieces of shit. No innocent until proven guilty for MMA fans.

    I hope Paulo sees Kelly Slater and he slaps his old irrelevant ass.

    When someone who is being accused of taking PEDs answers “I’ve never tested positive” it rings an alarm to me, I will go so far as saying it’s a dead give away that they are on PEDs.

    Accusing someone of illegal PED use, is not accusing them for having tested positive in a test, defending yourself with “I have never tested positive” is not really a defense, because we all know the tests can be beaten.

    Imagine someone stole your wallet, someone looks suspicious in the room and you walk up to them and say “I think you stole my wallet” and they answer ...”you can’t prove that” instead of “I would never do that”. How much would you feel they are guilty.

    I could achieve Costa's physique on creatine, veggies potatoes, and grass-fed beef.

    anyone who thinks surfing or skate boarding is even remotely close a bigger sport than mma is clearly delusional...skate boarding? haha get real...it's for kids and over grown kids...I don't even call it a sport...and surfing might be popular down in cali or hawaii, but the rest of the country, nobody gives a shit. When was the last time a group of people gathered around a tv to watch surfing? haha

    we are talking about 2 different things...if you're talking about surfing being more popular as a leisure activity people do for fun, then maybe...but it no way is a larger professional sport...not even close.

    "I didn't saw what Kelly Slater wrote, but apparently he does not understand anything about MMA. I was tested eight times in 2018 only by USADA (American Anti-Doping Agency) - I was tied with Rafael dos Anjos in number of tests in the year, but now I surpassed it because I was tested before and after the fight. I don't think he should even know what USADA is. He better take care of his surfing, because he doesn't understand anything about fighting.''

    What has the world come to when we give surfers a platform to espouse their views? <{hughesimpress}>

    Costa is suspect as fuck but innocent until proven otherwise.

    Have you ever surfed a day in your life? You definitely need to be athletic. Id love to see you paddle and drop into 25 foot pipeline or 45 foot Mavericks. These guys train like professional athletes in the off season and he is one of the greatest athletes ever. 11 world titles, who else has done that in their respective sport? No one. How about you educate yourself before making stupid posts, and go paddle put for a couple hours and tell me how you feel the next day
