Despite announcing this week that he was pulling out of a March 26 WEC middleweight title defense versus Chael Sonnen (Pictures), Paulo Filho (Pictures) will put the belt up after all, the Brazilian's manager, Ed Soares, informed Sherdog.com Thursday afternoon.

"He went through some personal issues, and he basically pulled everything together," Soares said.

Sonnen will lose....Filho has a supercamp and i trust he is cutting weight right and will not be dehydrated come fight team, also wouldn't it be funny come fight time A.Silva in Filho's corner and D.Hendo is Sonnens.....it wouldn't be funny but extremely akward and uncomfortable...

I've got nothing against Sonnen but I hope Filho knocks him the fu*k out and steps into the UFC and fights Anderson Silva. I really think that could be an intersting fight if Filho doesn't move up to 205.

I was one of the first people to get on Filho about postponing the rematch because he wasn't ready, so good for him that he got over his issues and is ready to get back in the cage.

As for fighting Silva, isn't Silva helping Filho train for this fight? Besides, Silva's said that there is no way he'd fight Paulo since the train together and are friends.

Lets face it, Silva would dominate Filho. I like them both, but Silva > Filho anyday

I'm so glad this fight is going to happen. Sonnen impressed me in the first matchup. But, I"m pretty sure Filho will be ready for him now. As such I'm still going to be routing for Sonnen.
