Jordan Breen reports on the continuing hilarity at Impact FC's second press conference in Sydney, Australia: Middleweight Denis Kang, though obviously disinterested, is thoughtful in his responses and speaks at length about the ankle injury that hampered him before his bout with Alan Belcher, and the visa issues that kept him from training at American Top Team recently. However, his opponent, the notoriously eccentric Paulo Filho -- clad in a beige Venum shirt instead of his usual sleeveless flannel -- gives terse, bizarre answers to questions. Twice Filho responds to questions after Kang, simply mumbling, "I agree." When asked by fighter-stroke-commentator Elvis Sinosic what he did to train specifically for Kang, Filho offers, "I trained for him, specifically." "When are we eating?" Kang then asks promoter Tom Huggins. "I can't eat, so I don't really care," answers Glover Teixeira. Exchanges like this are the backbone of Impact FC press conferences. The press conference drags. Teixeira explains his visa situation, saying that he may have to wait up to 27 months for his green card. Former TUF cast member Jeremy May, sporting a quasi-Clay Guida mop, discusses the orphanage he and his father have opened, despite the fact May now looks like a cast member from "Jackass." K-1 convert Peter Graham says that it's normally his M.O. to talk trash, but because opponent Jim York's father is hospitalized after having a stroke, he's opted to refrain. Pens click, cell phones ring, and conversations in Portuguese create a symphony. Suddenly, something pierces my chest. Denis Kang has hurled a paper airplane made from an Impact FC flier at me. "It's a fighter plane," Kang says. I can't tell if he's intentionally making a pun or not.

According to GracieMag.com, the Australia Athletic Commission has refused to allow Paulo Filho to compete on three consecutive weekends for Impact FC. Filho will be allowed to fight only once, against Denis Kang, on the July 18th card in Sydney. Karo Parisyan's fight with Luis Dutra Jr. on that card has also been scrapped due to an injury suffered by Dutra.
