Chael Sonnen vs. paulo filho

According to the Brazilian website TaTame, the rematch between WEC light heavyweight champion Paulo Filho and Chael Sonnen at WEC 33 on March 26 will be postponed till WEC 34 on June 1.

The reason for the postponement, THE BLUES….It seem Paulo Filho has been a little unmotivated to train and asked the WEC to postpone the fight so that he can train properly for the fight. Here’s a little clip:

“I wasn’t on a good moment, had depression but I’m rising now and the Americans forced me to fight now. I’m not afraid of winning or losing, but I wasn’t motivated to train, wasn’t training well, so I decided to do what the contract says and transferred the fight to June”

    He didn't look that good the first time they fought plus the other guy was takin it to him, so he has to get to cob webs out and give another shot , it won't matter i think Sonnen will take it in 2nd fight anyways.

    after that comment by filho i hope he looks bad again against sonnen and loses his belt. its not like he'll ever fight anderson silva anyway so i don't even know what he's working for.
