UFC middleweight contender Paulo Costa recently recalled his time working as an IT consultant before a full transition to mixed martial arts.

These days, Costa has earned a reputation as a brutal knockout artist who has carved out a place for himself at the top of the 185-pound division on MMA’s biggest stage. To do so, the Brazilian went 13-0, including a perfect career start in five fights in the Octagon.

Costa got a title shot on the back of a memorable Fight of the Night war with Yoel Romero. While back-to-back losses to Israel Adesanya and Marvin Vettori stalled his charge and raised questions about his professionalism, “Borrachinha” bounced back last month at UFC 278 in a co-main event contest against Luke Rockhold.

Before that result, and afterwards, Costa made a pro wrestling face turn, thanks in large part to his entertaining presence on social media and in interviews.

It was on full screen this week when he appeared in the studio for an interview on MMA hour with Ariel Helwani.

Costa: from technical specialist to successful artist

Along with analyzing a few of his unique Twitter posts and throwing shade at new rival Khamzat Chimaev, Costa tried his hand at a new craft by chopping MMA Fighting’s Eric Jackman’s hair.

But before showing off his skills with a razor in hand, ‘Borrachinha’ was asked about his professional life before finding success inside the cage. Costa explained that before training full-time as a fighter, he worked in IT.

“Yes he. How long? I did this for a year or something. I think I’m really smart, but it’s so simple. Every fucking stupid thing can do this,” Costa said in laughing. “It’s not hard. Just coaching people, how do you say? Learning? I teach people how to create files and write something in Word, edit it and format it.”

When asked why he quit, the Brazilian cited his growing commitment to a career in MMA.

“Because I started training for more hours of my day,” Costa noted.

After rising through the ranks of a regular nine-to-five profession and being an audience member of a Brazil-held UFC card to challenge for gold in the promotion himself, Costa believes his journey can serve as proof that dreams can be achieved. .

“It can be a good example for anyone who dreams of something. Everyone has a dream, right? If you keep chasing your dreams, something will happen,” Costa insisted.
