Paulo Filho Says Bitetti Combat Wouldn't Pay Him Enough To Fight

New, 8 comments

I didn't really cover it, but Paulo Filho was supposed to fight on the Bitetti Combat 6 card last night against Yuki Sasaki..  He was on, then off, on again, and then off again.  The statement given by Bitetti was that Filho pulled out of the fight due to personal problems.  Which lead many to assume that Filho was having issues with drugs and pills dependancy which are demons from his past.  However, Filho denies those allegations and simply said that Bitetti wasn't going to pay him enough to fight.  Check it:

"We didn’t have a financial agreement. The purse was too low comparing from what I’m used to receive and it’s bad for the fighter’s career,"
