Paulo Filho Interested In Fighting For Strikeforce, Fight w/ Lawler

Jorge Guimares “Joinha”, coach for Paulo Filho, tells Tatame.com the plans for the former top three ranked middleweight in the world:

“We have offered Paulo to Sengoku or Strikeforce and that is where we want, if possible straight into a fight with Robbie Lawler…. The contract of Bellator is cruel. It is a new event and we opted not to put Paulo there because they did not want to put a clause in the contract that, if the guy is not fighting for four months, the contract loses its validity. We were just victims of this in EliteXC, which was bought out and left athletes at its mercy and without fighting for a good while.”
