Paulo Filho: Chael Sonnen 'will pay dearly' at WEC 36



"I’m not feeling bad, I’ve already recovered my weight and I’m ready. That guy (Sonnen) will pay dearly my 25% (purse) inside that octagon on those three rounds: 10% on the first, 10% on the second and the rest at the third."

WEC Middleweight Champion Paulo Filho sounds fired up after having to forfeit 25 percent of his purse to Chael Sonnen after tonight's fight at WEC 36: "Faber vs. Brown" at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., which will air on the Versus network at 8 p.m. ET. And the Brazilian intends to take it out on the Team Quest fighter in the form of bodily harm. Filho shocked the mixed martial arts community yesterday, coming in to his then 185-pound world title bout an alarming seven pounds over the division limit. As a result, he has been docked a portion of his salary and the fight will now be contested as a three-round nontitle fight.
