    Why haven't fighters learned that excuses never help and only alienate fans?

    Got to respect fighters like Shogun, Rumble, Silva....guys who lose with dignity and keep their mouths shut.

    He didn't look himself for sure.

    He's mentally impaired if he thinks he could ever beat Izzy.

    Was like a Dad fighting his son.

    Was his foot a balloon or was it something else?

    I hope Costa comes back strong but he's taking this loss like Ronda Rousey.

    Poor Costa. Now he has a sore leg and a sore butt.

    His leg was impaired AFTER Izzy started kicking it. Before it seemed fine.

    He did seem quite eager to let it in front of izzy so it gets blasted by leg kicks.
    Didn't even change stance or stand more square to protect his impaired leg.

    Mhhhhhh this doesn't add up.
    Either he's lying or worse: retarded

    Same problem Dom had in the TJ fight. Cody was moving fine until TJ landed the kicks. Dom won and couldn't admit those leg kicks hurt him. Bad look for Costa here.

    there can be valid cases where excuses are meaningful, like for example if your foot was a balloon or you had been drinking too much alcohol during your camp

    even with a good leg Izzy butchers him, Costa is a slow brawler, style wise he ain't ready

    Costa is falling off hard, hopefully this isn't the beginning of a career slide. Crazy how much his situation has devolved in such a short amount of time.
