According to Tatame. Hell of a fight...if it goes down.

Odessa, can you open lines on Filho actually showing up?
Former WEC middleweight champion, Paulo Filho will have a chance to win one more title in his career. TATAME.com learned from several sources that the black belt will face Bellator tournament champion Hector Lombard at May 20.

Conan Silveira, Lombard’s Jiu-Jitsu trained at American Top Team, confirmed the news to TATAME.com. “We’re ready for anything. I just came from Australia, I didn’t know if Paulão had signed it yet”, said Silveira, who graduated Lombard black belt this Saturday, after his victory at CFC 12. “That’s a sad situation because Paulão comes from the same school that I came, from Carlson’s, he’s my friend, but this it professional”.

 Anyone see pics of Art Santore after Lombard beat him last week? Dude's head looked like he got into a tussle with a lawnmower blade.

Man great fight for Lombard, a good way to get his name out there even more. If Filho turns up he better turn up prepared or things could get really ugly.

 Lombard is a horrible match up for Filho, epsecially right now with his momentum and Filho looking like crap.

It's a hell of a fight on paper but of course Filho is a psycho so the actual fight will probably suck.

 so Tatame says that he has a chance for the belt...

however

Neer is fighting Alvarez in a non-title fight...

so, either Filho is doing the same vs Lombard or Neer needs to get a title shot too!!!!!!!!

They have tried to go after him in the past. He was scheduled to fight Karo Parisyan back in 2007 but visa issues put the kabosh on it.

 Wow this is gonna be an awesome fight. I'm sure it's not for the title.

and yes Paulo cannot be trusted, that's why i'm guessing he's in this superfight instead of the tourney.

Is Filho getting taken advantage of by promoters?

He appears to have some substantial issues and is not the fighter he was...are they just trying to build their own stars on his troubles?

Doubt Paulo shows up, if he does NO WAY he makes 185...either way I think Lombard would handle Paulo in a fist fight.

Over/under on this actually happening?

Until Filo firstly; shows up at the weigh ins and secondly walks in the cage, I don’t see it happening.
