Three years after leaving Pride FC, Paulo Filho might face another legend of the Japanese event. According to his trainer Josuel Distak, the black belt will probably face Kazushi Sakuraba at Bitetti Combat 6, scheduled to February 25 in Brasilia, Brazil.

atleast we wont have to worry about seeing Sakuraba get beat up in this one..till probably wont win though. I think Paulo is too stocky and too strong, will probably take a decision.

Saku is too old for the younger/stronger filho...i don't think he has much of a shot at this stage in his career, although it's a cool fight, I think Filho will sub Saku

after the sonnen/ filho fight in WEC ive wanted to see filho lose badly but i dont see sakuraba being the one to do it. hey you never know though, maybe sakuraba will pull off some freak heel hook or somethin'
