Filho off of Bellator card :(

Real shame here... wish Filho could get his sh*t together. Sad story going on with him.

Quote:

After roughly a week of rumors that Paulo Filho would not be able to face Hector Lombard in their scheduled Bellator Superfight because of Visa issues Bjorn Rebney (Bellator CEO) said the fight was still a go on Saturday:

“I’ve been on the phone with all the appropriate people and we’ve got everything in line.”

Rebney today spoke to Filho’s representatives, who said that Filho is traveling from Brazil to the U.S.on Monday and will have his pre-fight medical paperwork completed the next day. But there is a Plan B if Filho fails to materialize.

“We’ve backed ourselves up; we’ve done everything we needed to do in protecting the sanctity of that event, but my hope is that he shows up,” Rebney said. “I think Hector Lombard deserves this fight.”

Unfortunately the situation continued to change and Filho is not going to be able to make the fight. UFC veteran Jay Silva steps in to his place and will take on Lombard, the current Bellator middleweight champion.

Silva is 5-3 in his career and is on a two fight losing streak that saw him bounced from the UFC. It's certainly not the test for Lombard that Filho would have been but at least Hector will be staying busy.

This is a bummer, was looking forward to that fight and not really interested in the short notice replacement's chances.

Filho pull out of a fight? Unheard of! Well...Not really. The dude is a dirtbag who continues to waste his talent and piss off his obligations. Its gonna be hard for him to find work with any of the big three (UFC, Strikeforce, Bellator) ever again.

Fight came and went dude. Filho was replaced by Jay Silva, Lombard annihilated him in like six seconds. Filho has continued to live up to his reputation as the most unreliable fighter on the planet.

I don't think he is a dirtbag, I think he has mental health issues.
