As Paulo Costa gears up for a challenging fight against Sean Strickland at UFC 302 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., he has added a surprising skill to his repertoire. The Brazilian contender, known for his popularity among UFC fans, took a moment to learn how to twerk from women’s bantamweight fighter Ailin Perez during a backstage encounter earlier this week.

Costa, who is set to compete in a high-stakes co-main event, aims to bounce back from a recent decision loss to Robert Whittaker. A victory over Strickland, a former UFC champion, could significantly boost Costa's standing and potentially set him up for title contention by the end of the year.

As the fight approaches, fans eagerly await to see if Costa’s new dance move will bring him luck in his crucial match against Strickland.
