The following is an excerpt from an article provided courtesy of masslive.com:
Paulo Filho is a world-class fighter with a 15-0 professional record. He has fought all over the world, including the now-defunct Pride Fighting Championships in Japan. Filho recently defeated Joe Doerksen for the WEC middleweight title and will make his first defense Dec. 12 in Las Vegas against Frank “Twinkletoes” Trigg.
Filho will arrive in Ludlow Nov. 1 to begin the final phase of his training for this fight against this very tough opponent. Trigg has held his own against many of the big names in the UFC, such as former welterweight champions Matt Hughes and Georges St. Pierre.
