Paulo Costa scares Dana White, tells Luke Rockhold ‘be cool’ at UFC 278 press conference staredowns

MMA Fighting

SALT LAKE CITY – “You scared me.”

UFC President Dana White was on high alert after Paulo Costa leaped forward into a staredown with his UFC 278 co-headliner Luke Rockhold after a press conference of back-and-forth insults.

But for all the animosity on display, Costa urged a seething Rockhold to “be cool” as they faced off following the press conference for Saturday’s pay-per-view at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City.

Still, as the middleweights faced off for camera, White kept his arms on each – just in case.

Welterweight champion Kamaru Usman and challenger Leon Edwards took a few playful shots at each other. When it came time to face off, they were intense and respectful for their second-to-last interaction before fight night on Saturday.
