Quoteworthy: Paulo Filho-"I'd Submit [Gegard] Mousasi"

New, 9 comments

Paulo Filho speaks with Tatame:

I wanna fight Mousasi and show that with against me is a whole different thing… He doesn’t have my strength, he doesn’t have my level on the ground. He can be a better striker, but he doesn’t have my strength and he’ll go down once and be submitted", guarantees Fiho, commenting Mousasi’s fight against Sobral. "HE’s well trained, but I don’t think he’s healthy enough to beat me… If he wins, I don’t even want my salary. But I guarantee he’ll be beaten more than he was against (Akihiro) Gono"

One must remember that Gegard Mousasi has a couple of fights left on his DREAM contract, so this fight could definitely come to fruition. Filho was able to weather the stom against heavy handed Melvin Manhoef and submit him at DREAM 10. There were rumors of Filho getting a middleweight title shot at DREAM 11, but nothing has been formally announced. Acutally, Filho's next fight will be against Alex Shoenauer at Bitetti Combat 4. Do you think Filho could submit or even defeat Mousasi? Hit the comments and/or poll up with your thoughts.
