Turns out he's a Junkie and is depressed
Its back on, turns out hes just bi-polar.
Nope back off. Just hit front page of sherdog.
hes in a clinic.
What the fuck. Oh well I guess professional fighters are real people, who knew :X
wow what a emo
Yeah, sorry it's on the Main page of Sherdog.
I guess he went AWOL for a couple of days and they "found" him in some rehab clinic.
I said no, no no...
...I aint goin to rehab.
no, no, no
Well that sucks, being defeated mentally is worse than a physical blow. Bones will heal, cuts can close, but you lose your mind, its over son. I think he should just go watch Karate kid and never back down and really get motivated to fight.
I'm fuckin mad. I had money on Sonnen as an underdog.
I dont know how much horse crank that guy was on, but he sure must suck at cycles if his come off is hitting him this hard.
Quick, pin this man with some test and throw in in the cage!
WHAT AN EMO ASS FAGGOT
i dont get all the shit talking on him. dude must have some serious problems right now. I just wish him and his family the best. Hopefully shit will work out and we'll see him back in top form.
Agreed, it's a shame really.
now I feel bad
WEC Champ Paulo Filho Withdraws from March 26 Event
by Dann Stupp [mmajunkie] on Mar 13, 2008 at 10:43 pm in - News -
WEC middleweight champ Paulo Filho (16-0) has pulled out of a March 26 title fight and rematch with Chael Sonnen (19-9-1) to check himself into an undisclosed rehabilation center, the organization announced on Thursday.
Filho is seeking help for a substance-abuse problem.
The WEC event will now feature a main event between WEC light heavyweight champ Doug Marshall and Brian Stann. It takes place at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nev., and airs live in high-definition on the VERSUS network at 9 p.m. ET.
Filho and Sonnen first met in December at WEC 31. Filho kept his undefeated streak alive with a second-round submission via armbar. However, the fight ended with a bit of controversy as Sonnen, who had dominated much of the fight, claimed he never verbally tapped. Sonnen groaned in pain from the submission -- and it was clearly audible to the television audience -- but he said it was never intended to be a verbal tap-out.
Last week Filho had publicly contemplated pulling out of the event due to "personal reasons." However, his manager, Ed Soares, later stated that Filho's camp had rallied around the fighter and that the bout would continue as scheduled.
In an announcement posted on WEC.tv, Soares said Filho is now getting the help he needs.
"This is horrible news, but we’re proud of him for stepping up and recognizing his problem," Soares stated. "At times like this, you realize who your true friends are and who really supports you, and the people around him now are supporting him and are gonna be with him when he comes back. Paulo apologizes to his fans but he thanks them for their support, and he promised that the next time they see him, he'll be back at 100 percent and will be the Paulo Filho everyone expects to see."
Filho, widely regarded as one of the world's top middleweight fighters, first joined the WEC last year after a successful career with PRIDE Bushido. He won the the WEC middleweight title with an August TKO victory over veteran Joe Doerksen.
sucks. guy has alot ahead of him to accomplish in mma, hopefully this doesnt become another case similar to tanner.
That would kind of explain alot about his last couple of performances in the WEC.
steroids or... ?
Painkillers I bet. I highly doubt he's in rehab for steroids.
I told myself if I was every going to be addicted to any drug it would be pain killers
oh shit that's awesome stuff.. you can be in the worst mood and suddenly be the happiest care free guy in the world on those.
with a nice buzz too!
yeah, they are so damn easy to become addicted to it's not even funny.
i'm glad to hear this. people can call him emo and gay, but at least we dont have to watch a half-assed Filho fight again. It will be nice to see him back in full form.
I just feel bad for whoever bough tickets to see Mr. KD headline.
