The Brazilian news site Tatame reported that Paulo Filho asked to have his fight rescheduled till June, due to a bout of depression.

According to Sherdog, it know looks like the WEC isn’t going to just let him out of his obligation one month before the fight.

Filhos manager Ed Soares responds:

“He went through some personal issues, and he basically pulled everything together. During difficult times you get to see who your true friends are, and everyone is coming together to help him get ready for this fight.”

    Doug Marshall seems to have a better all around game but if he keeps it standing with the the bigger Stann I think he might be in trouble. But Marshall has some BJJ moves and I'm sure wont think twice about going to ground and looking for the finish there.

    Sonnen had the there first fight practially won if he would have kept it on his feet.

    Thats right you have to respect Marshall's BJJ because he showed in his last fight that he can end it quick. I'm really looking foward to see what Filho/Sonnen 2 is going to look like.
