Paulo Costa spoke Saturday night following UFC 217 about Derek Brunson’s accusations that he was “100% on the juice” and more. Brunson made the statement on Twitter, saying, “100% on the juice. Not impressed at all. Slow and gassy. Get some more fights first . Not interested” regarding a potential fight. Costa’s comments are below, via MMAjunkie:

On Brunson accusing him of juicing: “[laughs] He’s crazy. He’s scared. He doesn’t want a fight against me. USADA tests everybody all the time. So Derek Brunson doesn’t want a fight against me, but I’m ready. It’s like Vitor Belfort, he doesn’t want a fight against me. (Or) Tim Boetsch…Please, Derek Brunson, don’t be scared.”

On his goals: “I’m the next generation from Brazil. And I have no questions: I will be the next legend from Brazil.”
