UFC 259 ‘Embedded’ video (Ep. 2): Israel Adesanya channels Paulo Costa, masters drunken fist

Click here to watch Episode 1.

Reigning UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya is going to get a lot of mileage out of the latest excuse from 185-pound rival Paulo Costa, who recently blamed his technical knockout loss to “The Last Stylebender” on a bottle of wine.

Don’t feel bad for “The Eraser,” he earned it with all that pre-fight trash talk.

Adesanya was making “Drunken Fist” jokes during his pre-fight preparations for the upcoming UFC 259 pay-per-view (PPV) event this weekend (Sat., March 6, 2021) in Las Vegas, where the former kickboxer will take on the Polish power of light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz.

Watch all that and more in the latest edition of UFC 259 “Embedded.”

“We can drink some before the fight like Costa,” Adesanya said while brandishing a bottle of booze. “I can’t sleep! Oh no! I know the Drunken Fist!”
