Is the UFC 302 co-main event between Paulo Costa and Sean Strickland in danger? Yes, according to Strickland, who recently claimed that the Brazilian is yet to sign the contract just weeks ahead of the fight.

“Goddamn, Costa. I’ve heard you’ve yet to sign that contract,” Strickland said on social media. “I’ll tell you what, man. I didn’t fucking believe it. I did not think you’d react like a coward. I thought you would man up, sack up. Instead, you’re acting like you’ve got fucking ovaries.”

“I went onto Google. I did the right things, gave you the benefit of the doubt. I went onto Google and I noticed something, man. After you fought Izzy, you went down hill. You went on that fucking deep end, my man. I don’t know what fucking happened in that little fucking pea brain you have.”
