*Translated*The new fight enters the champion of the WEC até 83kg, the Paulão Brazilian Son, and the American Chael Sonnen was postponed. The fight, that was marked for day 26 of March, in Wools Vegas, United States, was transferred to June. “I was not at a good moment, had depression problems, I am arising itself now, and the Americans had been forcing a bar I to fight now. It does not have this to be from fear to earn or to lose, but I was not motivated to train, I was not training right, then I decided to fulfill the contract and the fight was transferred to June”, disclosed Paulão.

I have a little bit of a hard time believing that. I think it's a little more fear considering Sonnen nearly beat him last time out. He's vulnerable now.

LOL

The mean WEC is forcing Filho to fulfill his contract obligations and would not let him pick his own fights! Meanwhile, he's battling personal problems compounded by a complete lack of motivation.

sounds like a case of Randy Couture to me. I think it's time for him to jump ship and fight 1-0 cans with the World Victory Road.

All I've heard from this guy is excuses lately. This is pretty sad. I was looking forward to his rematch with Sonnen. Now I have to wait to June because he wasn't motivated to train? That's bullshit! This guy is starting to really wear on my nerves.

It does seem a bit early for a rematch or fight since they just fought in Dec.I can sympathise with Paulo and am sure he'll be motivated to give Sonnen a beatdown in June.

i don't know...why would he be more motivated in June than he would be right now?

While I agree that it may be a little early for a rematch, postponing it because he's not motivated or ready is kinda shady.
