Paulo Filho, once considered a top middleweight in the world, has once again left a promotion scrambling for a replacement after dropping out of Bitetti Combat 6, according to Tatame.

Luckily Thales Leites was available and will replace Filho against Yuki Sasaki. Leites is coming off a unanimous decision win over Dean Lister at MFC 23 “Unstoppable”.

Filho has struggled in recent years with depression and drug addiction, which may or may not be the cause of his withdraw.

Betitti Combat 6 is expected to take place on February 25 at the Nelson gym in Brasilia, Brazil.
