 I guess I'm the only one who found the news about the Besouro/Parysian fight being off to be more disappointing than the Filho news. That would've been a great fight I think.

I should head out east and film a reality TV show when/if he gets here - "In Search of Filho". (We don't get Celebrity Rehab on free to air here).
