Paulo Costa‘s social media game has been unbeatable. The middleweight decided to drop any sort of reservedness when it comes to his posts. The 31-year-old has one of the funniest online presences which has been even noted by other fighters and definitely by fans. From sharing his ‘secret juice’ to trolling UFC president Dana White, there is no aspect of MMA that Costa has not trolled so far. Now, in one of his recent posts, the Brazilian took a jibe at UFC welterweight Belal Muhammad by comparing the 34-year-old to one of actor Sacha Baron Cohen’s famous characters. Fans reacted to the funny comparison and made some even funnier comments on the post.
Paulo Costa continues his trolling with a new post aimed at Belal Muhammad
The Brazilian is quite active on his social media and has continued to provide fans with memes and hilarious takes on different topics. Recently he even took a jibe at Sean Strickland, saying the middleweight’s been shot several times. Costa clearly doesn’t shy away from even messing around with Dana White. The middleweight had very recently posted a morphed image of him and Dana White signing a deal. The caption on that tweet mentioned how he rejected $500 million for his secret juice rights. This was one of many such tweets by Costa, and now he has decided to take a jibe at Belal Muhammad.
‘Borrachinha’ took aim at Muhammad with a side-by-side comparison of the welterweight with an image of ‘Aladeen’ from ‘The Dictator’ movie. The motivation for the tweet most likely must have come from the similarity between the two images. Belal Muhammad is strikingly familiar to the actor who wore sunglasses and seemed to be shouting out something. Even the long beard that both sported in the image looked eerily similar to each other.
Costa captioned the tweet: “This sir @bullyb170 is my favorite fighter and actor at welterweight.” as he tagged Muhammad on his tweet.

Interestingly, Belal Muhammad also took it in good spirits. The 34-year-old even responded with a bunch of laughing smileys at the tweet.
