Much like how Venom’s alien symbiont enables him to do some amazing things like star in horrible movies like Spiderman 3, Paulo Filho’s cut-off flannel grants the dude the ability to submit guys like Melvin Manhoef in seconds and get tattoos like ‘Reward Hunter’ and a portrait of Mike Tyson on his left arm…which is ironic because Mike Tyson has a portrait of Chairman Mao on his right arm. I wonder what Mao has tatted on his arm. If you said Bob Ross then we can only hope and pray that you are right. Paulo Filho called out Gegard Mousasi is the Brazilian magazine Tatame and pretty much guaranteed he will beat Mousasi and if he fails, dude doesn’t even want to get paid. That’s pretty baller.
“I wanna fight Mousasi and show that with against me is a whole different thing… He doesn’t have my strength, he doesn’t have my level on the ground. He can be a better striker, but he doesn’t have my strength and he’ll go down once and be submitted…He’s well trained, but I don’t think he’s healthy enough to beat me…If he wins, I don’t even want my salary. But I guarantee he’ll be beaten more than he was against (Akihiro) Gono.”
Since Dream/Strikeforce/M-1 Global have formed together like Voltron we can now see this match happen (and hopefully people will stop complaining about Mousasi’s lack of competition in Strikeforce). Mousasi still has to get pass Sokudjou in the upcoming Dream 11 Superhulk tournament but whenever he’s back from serving up concussions in Japan, Filho should call dibs on Mousasi’s first title defense. Well, he pretty much already did. [Source]
