MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Paulo Filho: “American People Has Big Mouths”


(Posing for a quick photo before heading into surgery.)

In a new interview with Tatame, WEC middleweight champ Paulo Filho swears that he’s over his depression and better than ever heading into a rematch with Chael Sonnen. As you might recall, Filho struggled with the blues and the drugs a while back before pulling out of a Sonnen rematch and checking himself into rehab. To hear him tell it, the treatment took, but he’s none too happy with Sonnen running his mouth to the press, even suggesting that the fight would never actually happen:

American people has big mouths… Sonnen should have said it to me, and not put this things in media, I think he doesn’t wanna fight me again, lose another arm…

All right, Paulo, let’s get something straight. I don’t appreciate you disparaging a whole nation of people based solely on Chael Sonnen. That’s like us saying the Brazilian people have trouble with drugs and depression. When in fact, they are actually a very jovial people and their drug use is for the most part purely recreational. See? So it wouldn’t be fair.

That said, it was a pretty sweet burn about him losing another arm. And I guess we do have big mouths. Then again, aren’t you the same guy who, later in the same interview, said this about Anderson Silva‘s upcoming fight with Patrick Cote:

Anderson will win, and I know it’ll be easy and fast. Cote isn’t fight for Anderson Silva, he’s a level above.

Not saying I disagree, but that sounds like something a guy with a big mouth might say. Once more, it’s those nice Canadians who end up getting treated the worst.

German, what the fuck, i am from sweden, like i wrote...i am not fat, watch my page at
www.armstrong4.vox.com

Sorry to hurt your feelings, but USA have the most fatties per capita :) You eat too much. Look at the people att sherdog.com. Jeff is fat, TJ is fat, Greg is fat...
You becomes what you eat...
Yes we do have a king but he has no power, like in all Europe..he just represent our country..good will.
Yes Bush is just sooo funny, enjoy every clip on youtube with bush hehe.
But you have one good guy in your nation and that is THE Lance Armstrong, he is returning to cycling in 2009 :)

Martin and Alan are proof that ignorance knows no nationality. I bet neither one have ever met an American or been to the country. We're not all fat morons, and everyone knows Bush is a dumbass that has embarassed our country beyond repair.

Yes Martin, because we all know that living under a 'King' or supporting the idea of a 'Royal Family' like much of Europe does is not dumb.

Also, I just finished patting myself on my dumb American back because it is so much easier to read your enlightened thoughts in broken english than German.

I was almost happy to see that fight will not take place, i'm not a huge fan of Paulo's fighting style. Lay and Pray. Although he looked better in his last fight

This is some funny writing!

The writer of this is the asshole.
booya- September 9, 2008 at 8:37 am
I'm sure he meant Sonnen and some other guys... not the WHOLE farcking nation. Stop taking yourselves so seriously.

Moving along:

Saying Anderson Silva is a level above Cote sounds like something everyone with a bit of knowledge in MMA would say, let alone a fellow countryman.

The writer of "The writer of this is the asshole." is an Anonymous asshole.

That is some funny shit right there. This is one of the most entertaining MMA blogs around.

If im not mistaken, wasnt filho getting his ass kicked and happened to pull an armbar that Sonnen didn't tap too... yeah thats how I saw the fight and so did everyone else there. Paulo needs to shut his mouth and fight... not take time off because his stupid ass needs to go to rehab for stupid shit.

What a jerkoff.
