Anderson Silva says he will not fight Paulo Filho
Anderson Silva has told TATAME that there is no chance that he will fight his friend Paulo Filho:
“I would never fight with Paulão. We train together, we’re always helping each other and (Josuel) Distak is our coach. There’s no chance to happen. People can complain, scream, whatever, but it won’t happen”, said the UFC middleweight champion.
With rumors of Filho making his way to the UFC eventually when Zuffa merges the WEC and UFC, many had hoped to see a middleweight clash between two of the top 3 middleweights in the world but now that appears highly unlikely.
