    If his dad or his grandfather has male pattern baldness, what does that do to that theory?

    I don't normally enter Costa threads, but because I did... why are you all do obsessed with this man's body? Seriously.

    He's ripped. We get it.

    Maybe go jerk off to bodybuilders or some shit.

    Wouldn't be surprised if he did. He likely used IVs for all his previous weight cuts, and now that he's been caught, he can't safely cut as much weight anymore or recover in time for a fight if he does.

    He's got the average reach for a guy his height (His reach and his height are the same 183cm/72"/6') but you're right in the sense that a lot of the better fighters in each division have a way "better" reach-height-ratio. Costa isn't the only guy with a relatively short reach at middleweight though, Jacare Souza has got the pretty much same reach as him (while being a bit taller) and Kelvin Gastelum has got a similar reach as well. Robert Whittaker isn't that long either, but then again there are guys like Hermansson, Romero, Weidman, Brunson, Cannonier..
