Costa shared a post on Twitter and had the musician and actress in the center of attention. Besides, he perhaps mentioned Charles Oliveira in his tweet, as he suggested Rihanna came to visit ‘Charles’ in their ‘neighborhood.’

The former lightweight champion Charles Oliveira recently had a splendid outing at UFC 274. And perhaps, according to Costa, Rihanna came to congratulate ‘do Bronx.’ However, Oliveira shared no such post. Also, the streaking lightweight fighter lives in Houston, Texas.

As far as Rihanna goes, the musician recently welcomed her first baby boy with boyfriend A$AP Rocky.

Anyhow, Costa has been sharing similar stuff where his tweets are more speculative. Only the fighter himself knows what the actual point of the tweet is.

The Brazilian recently penned a message for Floyd Mayweather which wouldn’t go too well with the undefeated boxer.

Costa’s continuous Twitter streak might end soon since Israel Adesanya‘s foe will step inside the Octagon against a savvy veteran in Luke Rockhold.

Why Luke Rockhold is a tough matchup for Paulo Costa?

The former Strikeforce and UFC champion was considered the best middleweight during his prime. Rockhold faced several injuries in his career that have halted his legendary run in the middleweight division. Besides, he has a habit of keeping his hand a little low, for which he has paid the ultimate price.

Even after these, Rockhold’s skills inside the Octagon are flawless. The middleweight has the best mount in the UFC, and his ground game could give anybody trouble. Besides, he has the most lethal kicks in the division.

All the Rockhold losses have come by a knockout, and generally, he was ahead in those bouts and just got caught. Rockhold has never lost multiple rounds in a fight and has looked in complete control, barring the knockouts. Thus, Costa has to bring his A-game to beat Rockhold.
