Breaking News: Paulo Filho Out Of Ifc Tourney!

By Eduardo Alonso

Breaking News:
Paulo Filho Out of IFC Tourney!

      In an unfortunate incident, Brazilian Top Team member Paulo Filho injured himself this Tuesday in training, just one day before his departure to the USA to compete in the much anticipated IFC Light-Heavyweight tournament. Filho was defending a takedown when he suffered a severe knee ligament injury and is currently in the hospital. The status of his injury isn’t completely known yet, but it’ll most certainly require serious treatment. This is the second time a sad incident like this happened in Filho’s career, as he was also forced to withdraw from PRIDE 21 due to injury. At the moment both the IFC organization and Paulo Filho’s manager are working on a replacement that may be announced at any moment. FCF will keep you posted on the developments.
