True to his word, Paulo Filho has agreed to vacate the WEC middleweight belt after losing unanimously on points to Chael Sonnen on Wednesday. Flying back to Los Angeles from Florida the day after what was supposed to be a five-round championship fight, Filho's manager, Ed Soares, said he planned on shipping the belt to Sonnen as soon as he could.

exciting stuff......not. But good to see filho show some respect after paulo saying he was going to make chael pay for the money he had to hand over for not making weight.

Shipping the belt to Chael is okay, but I'd rather have seen him HAND the belt over after the fight like Filho's cornerman said he would!

i would vacate too,
doesn't matter now since they are coming to ufc but i would like to see a rubber match between the two in the future.
a nice fihlo vs kang match that should have happened in pride before fihlo got hurt in the tournament i would like to see that match finally happen.

It wouldn't hurt my feelings if I never had to see Filho fight again.

I guess on the bright side Paulo said he would never fight Anderson.... Which is a good thing because missing weight is such a big disgrace to Anderson

I wonder how many months it will take for Sherdog and MMAWeekly to get Filho off of the ratings radar......

something could have been lost in the translations.. but if he did actually ship the belt to him... I give him props for that.. but he has alot to make up for... while I do not hate hate.. I lost alot of respect for him.

Paulo has already vacated the planet....he may as well vacate the belt too.



Just kidding.
His performance was a tad bit bizarre to say the least.
Obviously, I hope he overcomes his demons.

My thoughts exactly bro! He's some where else. He's lost it and i don't wanna see him fight like that again.
