Report: Paulo Filho vs. Chael Sonnen rematch postponed until June

A rematch between WEC middleweight champion Paulo Filho and Chael Sonnen that had originally been slated to take place on March 26 in Las Vegas has been postponed, according to a report on the Brazilian mixed martial arts website Tatame.

The Filho vs. Sonnen rematch is now slated to take place on a WEC show scheduled for June 1 in Sacramento, Calif.

The report indicates that the match was moved based on a request from Filho. While it’s hard to be completely certain of the reasons why Filho wanted the fight re-scheduled, it appears that symptoms of depression could be a reason.
