Tamara Alves is Paulo Costa‘s girlfriend. Costa is one of the most intimidating fighters in the current roster of the UFC. With just 14 professional fights in his MMA career, Costa has notable wins over Johnny Hendricks, Uriah Hall, and Yoel Romero.
Costa has also fought for the UFC middleweight championship, which he lost to the champion, Israel Adesanya. When faced with difficult times such as this, the fighter has relied on his girlfriend, Tamara Alves. As such, let’s get to know more about her.
Who is Tamara Alves?
Although known for being Paulo Costa’s long-term girlfriend, Tamara Alves is a fitness entrepreneur and founder of MundoFit. Costa is the obvious brand ambassador for Alves’ company. Alves is on Instagram and has a decent following for someone of her stature.
Not much is known about Alves’ family background despite the account being public. Alves is always present in Paulo Costa’s official YouTube videos. He also regularly posts about them on his other social media channels. Tamara Alves also works closely with Paulo Costa and may play a part in his daily management as a UFC fighter.
How did Paulo Costa’s girlfriend meet the UFC middleweight fighter?
In an interview with ESPN, Paulo Costa’s girlfriend Tamara Alves said about her initial meeting,
I met Paulo in 2013. My cousin’s husband trained with him at the gym. He said, “Wow, Tata, there is this very handsome guy at the gym. I think you’d like him.“Tamara Alves via ESPN
The two met at a Jiu Jitsu event that Costa was participating in. He was widely known as one of the best fighters in the gym. As such, Alves was impressed.
Alves was also drawn to Costa’s focus and determination to be the best. Eventually, Costa mustered up the courage to ask for Alves’ number. Amusingly, he did so by asking a friend of Alves for her number instead of asking her directly.
Since then, Tamara has been Costa’s rock as his girlfriend throughout Costa’s career. Recently, Paulo Costa set tongues wagging after he posted a photo with UFC fighter, Tracy Cortez. Fortunately, it turned out they are just friends and that Costa is still going strong with Alves.
