    Any idea why the WEC?

    IMO the Middleweight division is thinnest in the UFC.

  • says:

    I would think the UFC would like to build up Filho perhaps in the WEC first and see how he works out. And with guys like Doerksen, Miller and Riggs in there he should get some good tests.

    Heck of a card though on versus for the WEC, can’t wait for it.

    I am wondering why filho is not fighting in the UFC where he belongs.After what I seen him do to Misaki it’s obvious that whoever he goes up against will be in some serious trouble.I look to see him someday being champ in the welter weight division
