Newly crowned Strikeforce LHW champion Gegard Mousasi has not taken kindly to comments made from Brazilian Paulo Filho in this Tatame interview. Filho stated: “I wanna fight Mousasi and show that with against me is a whole different thing… he doesn’t have my strength, he doesn’t have my level on the ground. He can be a better striker, but he doesn’t have my strength and he’ll go down once and be submitted. He’s well trained, but I don’t think he’s healthy enough to beat me… If he wins, I don’t even want my salary. But I guarantee he’ll be beaten more than he was against (Akihiro) Gono.”
Mousasi pulls no punches in his response to Filho in this video from Fighters.com. Mousasi calls Filho a “little donkey”, claims he is on steroids, and blames Filho’s odd mental state and unwillingness to fight Chael Sonnen was on account that Filho couldn’t “use his magic stuff”.
