    DC has his moments. His rant was funny as hell! If anyone has a say in fighters making excuses it's DC because he got KO'd by his bitter rival who was on steroids. Made no excuses.

    Daniel Cormier is laughing at Paulo Costa for wine-ing about ‘Stylebender’ loss — ‘He’s out of his mind’




    “It’s a joke, it’s an absolute joke,” UFC color commentator Daniel Cormier said on his ESPN show with Ariel Helwani. “He’s out of his mind. This dude Paulo Costa is gonna kill me when he sees me. He legitimately says some of the dumbest stuff I’ve ever heard in my entire life. I don’t know who is advising this young man. This is the stuff you say after, ‘Oh man I got drunk,’ because you didn’t have time to think of an excuse. It took you six months to come up with ‘you got drunk, you drank too much wine’ ... who told him to put that out there?”

    It’s a super stupid excuse but I still think people are writing off Palo too early.

    He was undefeated going into the TS and got out struck by the best striker in the division by far.

    Paulo's only legitimate excuse is this:

    Israel Adesanya is a better fighter than me and beat my ass.

    So are we adding Sober Borrachina to the list of mythical fighters or what?

    He showed huge holes in his game against Uriah. He did well against Romero because Romero played into his game by being stationary and stuck against the fence. The guy is just a bodybuilder who tries to break you down because he's bigger than you

    Totally agree. Not saying he’s a world beater, just saying its his only loss and it was to the champ. Just a little early for all that.

    TBF, the motivated Penn stuff was a creation of the internet. He never really made excuses when he lost, except in the case of greasegate.
    A better comparison would be Tito and his excuses after literally every loss of his entire career.

    People caught on to the fact that he'd fought extremely limited competition going into the Adesanya fight.

    The only two ranked guys were Romero and Hall. He arguably lost to Romero, and Hall gave him a ton of trouble early in the fight.

    The first time that his opponent didn't willingly concede to backing up, he looked lost.

    IMO He losses cleanly to Whittaker and would have an extremely hard time with Till and Vettori.

    Maybe, but he was also pretty overrated going into the Adesanya fight...

    Hall was getting the better of the striking prior to the stoppage, and his fight with Romero was very close (though I do think he deserves the nod)...

    Of course, there’s wrong with either of those things, since Hall is a great striker and even Adesanya had a close bout with Romero, but I just couldn’t believe how many people were saying that Costa would beat Adesanya with his striking. I’m almost positive the majority of them were trolling.

    So he can press charges saying he was taken advantage of while drunk.

    I thought it was a bit much too...as an Izzy fan...but shit if Paulo didn't fuck with him relentlessly prior.

    They both had a full hand in that mess lol...

    Funny thing is, I thought "Borrachinha" (his nickname in Portuguese) was a riff on "Borracho" (which means "drunk" in Spanish); apparently "Borrachinha" actually means "rubber man" or "little rubber", which is even funnier: "Sober Drunkard Little Rubber future MW GOAT"

    Drunk on delusion, maybe. Once he saw how big "skinny" Adesanya was up close, and felt one of those kicks, he seemed to freeze.

    Do they test blood alcohol and sedative medications on fight day?
