An upset Paulo Filho confirmed the news that reached the GRACIEMAG.com newsroom. He will no longer fight at the May 13 Bellator show, where he would have faced Hector Lombard. According to the fighter, the bureaucracy involved in getting his visa was what held him back.
“It seems the event took too long in sending out the letter I needed to present at the consulate and I’m not sure but it could be there was some kind of failure on the part of my managers. So, I won’t get my visa in time. I’m really upset because I’ve been training a lot. I did everything just right; I don’t know what to say,” he says.
“It got me down, but I’m not going to stop training. Something good will turn up,” he says in finishing.
