At one time, former WEC middleweight champion Paulo Filho was considered the No. 2 fighter in the world at 185lbs, and possibly the best challenger to UFC champion Anderson Silva.

Fast forward a few years later and Filho’s career has taken a path that could only be described as sad and tragic.

Since losing to Chael Sonnen in 2008 and exiting the WEC for the last time, Filho has gone 6-3-2, but that’s nothing compared to the personal problems he’s encountered dealing with a drug issue and depression that have caused many around him to remain concerned over the years.

Hope it's true. He needs time away from fighting to get his life back together.

Everyone has an expiration date. Head to head Paulo has a finish chael does not sort of like Anderson and chael. Only that game is 1-0.

He says "My problem was only medicine". I can't stand people who have addictions to pharmaceuticals or prescription drugs and don't think they have a drug issue. If you look at the drugs that cause the most deaths....they are overwhelmingly the prescription drugs. Paulo....you have a drug problem. Period.
