MMA Quick Quote: Paulo Filho calls out Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua

1267198164

"I couldn’t miss the chance to challenge [Shogun]. I want to fight him and feel the pressure up close by the end of my career. That’s just something I want. Shoot, I’ve been getting lambasted on forums. Folks are acting with a lot of disrespect. But it’s what I want and I know I can make it.”

Maligned middleweight enigma Paulo Filho (19-1) shares his grand plans for the future with Graciemag.com, which include a fight against current UFC light heavyweight champion Mauricio Rua. "Ely" plans to fight four times in 2010, apparently overlooking the fact that he's pulled out of three events in the past 12 months, including a last minute withdrawal from his Bellator superfight against Hector Lombard back on May 13. Can he finally get his affairs in order and return to his past dominance? Or will he crack before ever getting the chance to fulfill his dream of fighting "Shogun?"
