According to his trainer Josuel Distak, the black belt will probably face Kazushi Sakuraba at Bitetti Combat 6, scheduled to February 25 in Brasilia, Brazil. “Sakuraba is a legend. If they confirm it, this fight will put Paulão at the tops again. Everybody knows that Paulão well trained doesn’t lose to anyone”, bets Distak.

People who don't understand drawing money will believe that Sakuraba will fight in Brazil.

 After what Filho did to FEG at DREAM.12, I cant see anyway that FEG would loan out Sakuraba to fight him in a Brazilian event.
