Bitetti Combat 6 took place last night. Interestingly, the drama with Paulo Filho continued. Last week it was reported that Filho pulled out of his fight with Yuki Sasaki due to personal problems and would be replaced by Thales Leites. Later it was learned that the Filho vs. Sasaki fight was back on. Last night however, Filho pulled out again and did not fight at the event. I can understand a guy having personal problems and a rough patch in life, but Filho is a mess. His fighting career is secondary right now to him getting his life straight. I don’t know if this is a drug addiction or depression, but Filho needs help.
- Fabio Maldonado was forced out of his fight late with a broken hand. The blackhouse fighter may soon be picked up by UFC or Strikeforce.
- Jeff Monson also did not compete at the event as he was slated to face Glover Teixiera. Monson may fight for Shine in May and is rumored to face Dave “Pee Wee” Herman.
- Former UFC number one contender got a win yesterday. Leites is expected to soon compete for the MFC middleweight title.
- Glover Teixira earned a win at the event and though he did not fight Monson Teixira should be in a big promotion soon. The UFC has reportedly signed Glover a while back, but visa issues foiled that plan. I am sure the UFC or Strikeforce would love to have Glover if his visa issues arr fixed.
- Danillo Villefort notched a win. “Indio” a WEC, IFL and UFC veteran is expected to fight for Shine Fights 3 in May.
- A promising welterweight prospect, Yuri Villefort also notched a win. Look for Yuri to be on some big promotion’s radar soon.
