Former WEC middleweight champion Paulo Filho (16-1) is looking for a meeting with Robbie Lawler on a Strikeforce show.

"We have offered Paulo to Sengoku or Strikeforce and that is where we want, if possible straight into a fight with Robbie Lawler,” his coach Jorge Guimaraes told Tatame today.

I hope this means his personal problems have been dealt with. He is a tremendous talent as long as he is mentally ready.

I thought he was moving up to LHW. Guy has all the talent in the world, but if he comes into a fight with Lawler in the condition he did his last fight, he'll end up eating canvas.

Lawler will tear filho up. Bad idea for filho.

Lawler needs to face Smokin' Joe V.

I hope Filho is back to his old self before taking on this fight, otherwise he'll get knocked out pretty quick. It sucks becouse, while I was never hugely impressed with Filho in his pride days, he was a differant animal to the fighter whos been on show since he came to the U.S. Its the same with Shogun, itd just be nice to show the ufc nutthuggers that while these guys might never make it back to the top of the food chain, they are good fighters and wherent just being hugely overrated by the pride nutthuggers.

Paulo would end up in a bad way if he jumps right to a fight with Lawler. I like TwentyDollars idea for lawler to fight Smokin Joe Villasenor. That would also end in a bad way for loawlers opponent IMO
