Paulo Filho No-Showed Bitetti Combat 6 Because It Didn't Pay What He Deserved
Apparently "personal reasons" was not the reason Paulo Filho no-showed Bittetti Combat 6 last night, where he was scheduled to face Yuki Sasaki. He told the TATAME website that it was all about the almighty dollar. "We didn’t have a financial agreement. The purse was too low comparing from what I’m used to receiving and it’s bad for the fighter’s career. [The media] said I’m having problems with drugs and medicines … You can test me and you’ll see … I’m great. I’m not worried with fighting in Brazil anymore. I like the event, Amaury is my friend, but this event doesn’t pay what I deserve ... If someone pays what I deserve, It’ll be my pleasure to beat him up".
