Filho is a nationalist, not a slut
The JJ and Judo blackbelt, Paulo Filho will travel December 8th to USA to make his first title defence against Chael Sonnen, at WEC 21, which will happen in Dec. 12th. In an exclusive interview for TATAME, Filho told us his preparation for the fight, and about his invitation to train Chuck Liddell for his fight with Wanderlei Silva. "I would never train an American to fight against a Brazilian. I am not a slut, or a prostitute" said the WEC champion.

Seems like a silly mentality. If all Brazilians thought that way, MMA wouldn't exist in the U.S. in the way it does today.
Still, nothing wrong with showing some national pride IMO. Though it probably wouldn't go over too well with the PC crowd if an American fighter used the same logic in refusing to help a Brazilian train.

"'I am not a slut, or a prostitute,' said the WEC champion."
That's not what he said LAST NIGHT.

I thought all Brazilians were sluts.
