Paulo Costa once amusingly mimicked Conor McGregor's promotional skit for his whiskey brand. Last February, 'The Notorious' filmed a commercial to introduce the new flavor of his Proper No. Twelve Irish Whiskey. McGregor even donned the attire of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, humorosly parodying one of Jobs' iconic iPhone presentations.

Days after the former two-division champion's advertisement, 'Borrachinha' displayed his comedic flair in a parody video of his own. In this hilarious rendition, the Brazilian skillfully imitated McGregor's sketch.

In the video, Costa sported a black turtleneck and glasses while mimicking McGregor's Irish accent. However, rather than promoting alcohol, he amusingly endorsed his own mysterious concoction, humorously named 'Secret Juice'.

Fans responded to Costa's playful rendition of McGregor's skit with a variety of reactions, with many praising the former middleweight title challenger for his acting skills.

One fan wrote:

Another wrote:

"Let's lot like Arnold but a straight man, in both senses of the phrase."

Another commented:

"This is better than anything Colby ever did."

'Borrachinha' humorously credits his chiseled physique to the consumption of 'Secret Juice'. Additionally, Costa frequently asserts that the concoction boasts a secret recipe and attributes it as the source of his exceptional strength.

Costa is set to square off against former 185-pound champion Sean Strickland in a five-round showdown, positioned as the co-main event of UFC 302. The sixth pay-per-view event of 2024 is scheduled to take place this Saturday at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

When Paulo Costa voiced his ambition for a middleweight bout against Conor McGregor

During an appearance on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani in January, Paulo Costa reacted to Conor McGregor's earlier declaration of his intent to enter the middleweight division upon his octagon comeback.

'Borrachinha' expressed his eagerness to fight McGregor in the near future and highlighted the Irishman's increased weight as a key factor driving his interest:

"I have some feelings about that. I think we're going to fight. I think so, honestly. Because he's moving up, and we don't have too many middleweight guys. I think my style and his style is a good matchup, you know? I do not try to put him down, and he does not, either. I think he's huge, strong, very good. He's an exceptional fighter, one of the best of all time."
