Now after having overcome his demons and back on track, the still valued middleweight fighter is now training out of Ludlow, Mass., with Team Link featuring Gabriel Gonzaga. He is set to make his return soon, but where? “Right now we’re in negotiations with some different organizations, but I believe he’ll be fighting by summertime somewhere,” explained Soares.

Previously reported to be in negotiations with the new Bellator Fighting Championships organization, it appears the possibility of Filho fighting there is a no go. “The contract (Bellator) was offering was too restrictive. It was unreasonable.”

I heard his next fight is at DREAM 9! not sure against who but according to some people on Sherdog, and he is.

He would get way more exposure in the long run IMO. Especially with Bellator showing so often, and on most American digital cable. Oh well, hopefully he doesn't fade away into obscurity and mediocrity.
