WSOF Signs Former WEC Middleweight Champion Paulo Filho

The World Series of Fighting (WSOF) has signed former WEC middleweight champion Paulo Filho to a multi-fight deal.

After the WEC was absorbed by the UFC, Filho has found moderate success. After going 6-1 for various promotions in Brazil, Filho’s record has started to sink. Of his last four fights, Filho has only had his hand raised once in victory. That sole win was against Murilo Rua in 2012. That was also Filho’s only appearance in 2012.

MMA Weekly said that Filho had contemplated retirement, but that clearly isn’t happening in the near future.

Filho is expected to appear for the WSOF in early 2013. No opponent has named. The WSOF is rumored to return with their second show in February.
