Blonde Brunson Continues To Roast Paulo Costa Over Weight Issues – MMA Root

Derek Brunson decided to continue his Paulo Costa comedic route after UFC Vegas 41.

Paulo Costa became the target of bad press after reportedly taking hostage the main event of UFC Vegas 41. Costa is said to have requested a few changes in the weight class that will challenge his fight with Marvin Vettori. What started out as a normal 185-pound middleweight fight had grown to 205 pounds by the time weigh-in arrived.

Many people have been offended by Costa’s antics, if not outright offended, but not middleweight contender Derek Brunson, also known as “Blonde Brunson.” Blond Brunson has gradually become a mythical figure in the MMA community, known primarily for his immunization against defeat.

Whether in the octagon or at the bookmaker, Blond Brunson was the winner. He even did an aggressive comedy, including inviting Paulo Costa to Brunson’s Blonde BBQ.

Brunson took to Instagram on Monday to continue sharing other anecdotes at the expense of his near-average peer Paulo Costa.

In the above meme, the hyperbolically plump Paulo Costa can be seen looking into the camera. According to Blond Brunson’s interpretation, the Brazilian is eyeing his next main course, which could be anyone (or anyone) from his growing list of critics.

One of those who did not laugh at Paulo Costa’s weight-lifting at UFC Vegas 41 was UFC President Dana White. While Costa impressed the boss with his performance against Vettori, it wasn’t enough to stop White from ejecting him from middleweight and demanding that he play light heavyweight from now on.

Vettori defeated Costa via unanimous decision in the main event of UFC Vegas 41. As for Blond Brunson, he will be looking forward to winning further when he faces Jared Cannonier at UFC 270 on January 22nd.
