Paulo Filho: UFC is conspiring against Brazilian fighters


Paulo Filho says the UFC’s apparent current policy of matching Brazilians with other Brazilians is designed to benefit American fighters in the organisation.

“The UFC is a great event, but the Americans do everything so that you cannot get the advantage. They [do] everything to get you down. American is American, they want to see Americans with the belt and so eliminate as many Brazilians as possible - but they will have to work a lot, because we are the best,”

Arona isn't in the UFC because he probably wants a lot of money and if you saw any of his fights, and especially his last onedude fights like a blanket most of the time

I think he's right to a degree. Why no Lil Nog or Arona in UFC for so long? Both have wins over Hendo. Both top guys at 205. Nog vs Gonzaga seems like an odd matchup, if winner gets Dos Santos i'll know it's true. Will Lil Nog get Shogun as an entry fight? Have to admit i'd love to see this one. Even Filo should have gotten a shot at the ufc when he was on a roll. I'll bet a lot of fighters would agree with Filo.

It may be common, but I wouldn't say it's universal. I'm an average white American of Irish and English descent, but none of my top ten favorite fighters are American, Irish, or English.
