Smile Zuffa should cut Filho from the UFC

Now that the WEC 185 division went to the UFC, they should get rid of Filho.

He has looked awful in his last 2 fights. The drug-abuse (and most likely other substances), have turned him into the next Mark Kerr. He didn't make weight, WHILE being the champion and I though I was looking at Sylvia vs Monson II, last night.

I say give him a 3 fight deal. If he doesn't get back on track and if the fights are against at least medium level UFC MWs, there's no way he's going to win any of them, and then he'll just get kicked out the same way as everybody else who can't make it in the UFC.

If he's still serious about fighting, this will give him a little bit of time to skip the drugs and start training again, since it takes ~1 year to fight three times.

I don't think they automatically get signed by the UFC just because they are in the WEC.

Sylvia/Monson was not nearly that bad though shall not insult the Snowman!!!!

I dont think they should cut Fihlo yet but I think they should allow and encourage him to take a couple fights outside the UFC and see if he can find himself,

Pride fighters continue to get exposed. If two years ago you said that Shoenan would kill Filho and Forrest would dominate Shogun you would have bee called a "Newbie" and not a true MMA hardcore fan

BROCK!!

The guy clearly has personal problems and i truly feel sorry for him, he definitly wasnt ready to fight Sonnen. I hope he can get his life back on track, its such a shame seeing a top fighter been like this.

In Prides defense if you told me that Anderson Silva would destroy Franklin (twice) Id have laughed at you to...

I felt sick watching this fight. I can't for sure say why he fought that way, but it just looks like he didn't care. He knew he wasn't going to lose the belt and he knew he was going to lose some money, so its like he just didn't care. His attitude before the fight already seemed this way like he didn't think Sonnen deserved a rematch. I really think he should be stripped of the title and let Sonnen fight the next #1 contender for the title
