55-Year-Old Joe Rogan Becomes the Latest Victim of UFC Star Paulo Costa’s Cheeky Attacks

Published 01/16/2023, 1:30 PM EST

The Brazilian UFC fighter, Paulo Costa is known for mocking his fellow fighters. However, this time, his target was the 55-year-old UFC commentator, Joe Rogan. Costa, in his recent social media post, made fun of Rogan’s head. More than a year ago, the middleweight fighter underwent hair transplant surgery in Brazil. Now, he dug up his photo along with that of his doctor,  with which he added a collage of Rogan. The collage was from two different stages of the commentator’s life. The first photo was an old picture of the young Rogan with hair, and the second one was his recent picture without hair, the bald Rogan that all know.

Paulo Costa on Rogan’s head

As a caption of the post Costa wroteI have a doctor to put that hair back on your skin head“. Costa pulling Rogan’s leg caught the attention of many, where they mainly noticed the word ‘skin head.’ One of the funniest parts of the post was that the doctor of Costa was himself bald. The comment section was filled with people telling the doctor to consult another doctor for hair growth. Rogan, who would definitely take the remark lightly, has not responded to the post yet.

In June 2021, the netizens trolled Paulo Costa for his hair transplant surgery. All the details regarding the treatment were posted on the social media platform by his physician, Dr. Pablo Matos Milhomem. The doctor posted photos and videos of every single procedure they did to treat him. He posted the close-up videos on how the transplant is done to reverse Costa’s receding hairline. This paved the way for his fellow fighters to make fun of him. Even his fans made the funniest remarks on social media platforms.

The failed hair transplant

The fans made fun of ‘The Eraser’ for taking a break from the UFC when he was at his best for the surgery. Many talked about how the Brazilian fighter gave importance to his appearance rather than focusing on his career. The American UFC fighter, Kevin Holland, was the fastest to make fun of Costa on social media.

Finally, he admits that he was left with no choice but to go for a hair transplant. However, things didn’t go as planned, and the hair transplant turned out to be a disaster. Rogan ended up removing the transplant, which left him with a scar behind his head. Nevertheless, the commentator admits that he would prefer to be bald than to live with the weird transplant. At the moment, Rogan is one of the most famous bald heads that exists, and his baldness indeed turned out to be a significant part of his identity.
