Paulo Filho M.I.A., Off Sunday’s Dream.12 Event

The roller coaster ride that has been Paulo Filho’s MMA career has taken yet another twist. Just two days before the troubled fighter was to meet Yoon Dong Sik at Dream.12, reports have surfaced claiming that company officials are unable to locate Filho and have pulled him from this Sunday’s show.

Filho’s manager, Ed Soares, confirmed the news this morning with Although he didn’t go into specifics about Filho’s situations, he did say that the talented grappler was “OK.”

Once considered one of the world’s top 185-pounders, Filho’s career has spiraled downward the last couple of years.

It is believed that Tarec Saffiedine will step-in for Filho on less than 48-hour’s notice to compete inside the Osaka Castle Hall in Osaka, Japan.

Here is the revised lineup for the HDNet broadcast:
Kuniyoshi Hironaka vs. Won Sik Park
Eddie Alvarez vs. Katsunori Kikuno
Chase Beebe vs. Yoshiro Maeda
Tarec Saffiedine  vs. Yoon Dong Sik
Keisuke Fujiwara vs. Tomoya Miyashita
Myeon Ho Bae vs. Marius Zaromskis (Non-title bout – Dream Welterweight Champion)
Tokimitsu Ishizawa vs. Katsuyori Shibata
Zelg Galesic vs. Kazushi Sakuraba
James Thompson vs. Alistair Overeem

Also, the dog ate my homework, my grandma died, and the power was out at my house all weekend.But it definitely had nothing to do with drugs. Or food. Or being crazy.
