After Paulo Filho’s only lost in his MMA career against Chael Sonnen, he got really depressed and started drinking alcohol faster than my old irish roomate. My old roomate did nothing to squash the whole ‘Irish people drink excessively’ sterotype. Not at all. The dude gripped 40oz of Mickey’s like Conan the Barbarian gripped two handed battle axes. The only thing that came between him and his beer was a concussion from collapsing in our parking lot. That’s right around the area Paulo Filho inhabitated after his WEC lost. He started to get really depressed and it costed him an entire year in rehab. This was right around the time when Paulo Filho started to rock cut off flannel shirts to accompany his brazilian trailer park life. He recently admitted that he was in a dark place during his year long stint.
Filho came back to the MMA world rocking a million dollar bill on his stomach with a pitbull in the middle. When asked what it meant, he said the the pitbull represented himself. If you’re thinking ‘Why didnt Filho just get a picture of himself in the bill?’ then choke yourself out (before Paulo does it for you). Yeah it’s going to be on his for the rest of his life but the dude is Brazilian. Let it slide. To accompany that tattoo (and his existing Mike Tyson mugshot), he etched the words ‘Reward Hunter’ on his chest. It sounds like an achievement you would get on your Xbox 360. Dude’s Brazilian though, so he can pull it off. I’ve been a ‘Carmen Electra Hunter’ for the better part of my life, so far I’ve been unsuccessful. Maybe the tattoo is what can bring me to the next level. Pictures coming soon.
After taking hydrogen bombs to the head via Melvin Manhoef’s fists, Paulo Filho somehow regained his composure and eventually submitted Manhoef this morning at Dream 10. Manhoef has a 96% KO ratio and he wears a skirt. That’s probably going to be the most ballerish thing you will read today. Paulo Filho moves to 17-1 and his next fight will be on the Jeff Monson/Pedro Rizzo card in September. We tried to contact Paulo Filho’s cutoff flannel for an interview but it was too busy shooting testerone into MMA fashion.
