Filho: I've received death threats, I'm retired after next bout

source: tatame.com
 

What about your career? Are you already back to training or will take a time out to train more?

I’m choosing or retirement, man… I may fight in November (in Poland) because I already signed the contract, after that I will retire. I don’t want this anymore.

This will be the last fight of your career? Don’t you think a win over Khalidov should give an extra motivation to get back?

No, no… I’m kind of disappointed with this stuff, fighting and not getting paid… I don’t want people comforting me, I just want what is mine. That’s the third time I fight and not get paid. I was the threatened of death by people I own here in Niteroi.

I honestly thought he was going to become a great...a legend. I hope he does find peace in his mind,and happiness in his heart, and maybe after that, if he's still young enough, THEN come back to fight.

That sorta looks like fighter bashing.He's a sick dude who needs help - he needs to stay FAR away from fighting and clean himself up first.

Small shows that fuck fighters over have drained a great competitor of his passion and motivation.Worst part is they somehow still get away with this.

I wish he'd get help. so much wasted talent... i wonder how much cash money it'll cost me to get him to show up at my birthday party and tell me tales from the fevelas... and about choking out Cheal.
