Silva: I Will Not Fight Filho

Assuming that Anderson Silva carries some clout within the UFC ranks, a rumored fight between him and Paulo Filho does not appear to be on the horizon any time soon, according to Tatame.com; Silva further added,

“Paulao (Paulo Filho) is no comments, he’s complete.  I think he’s absolute in this division, there’s nobody to beat him.  In my opinion, he’s the best middleweight.  I would never fight with Paulao.  We almost train together, we’re always helping each other and (Josuel) Distak is our coach.  There’s no chance to happen.  People can complain, scream, whatever, but it won’t happen.”

With the likelihood of the UFC absorbing the WEC, there were rumblings about a potential fight between Silva and Filho; however, with the comments made by Silva and his clout within the UFC, the chances of this fight happening appear very slim.  But with all things within the UFC, anything can happen, so never say never.
