Soares: Way Aldo split was 'really strange'

by Ariel Helwani | source:

At hte beginning of 2011 Black House boasted present or former UFC title holders Junior Dos Santos, Big Nog, Lyoto Machida, Anderson Silva, and Jose Aldo, but those ranks are thinning.

Six months ago, Junior Dos Santos announced he had other managerial arrangements. Anderson Silva has recently voiced displeasure with his management. And today word comes from Tatame that UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo has returned to his original manager.

Last week UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo dropped Black House founders Jorge Guimarães and Ed Soares as managers.

Now Soares comments on the split.

According to Soares, he was sent an e-mail from Aldo's trainer Andre Pederneiras of Nova Uniao informing him of the decision to severe ties with Soares and his business partner Jorge Guimarães.

"It wasn't really much of anything," Soares told, "other than his coach, who used to be his manager, felt like he didn't need our services. It pretty much was one of those things."

"It was really strange the way it all went down. His coach sent us an e-mail and that was it."

Soares insisted that there was no bad blood with Aldo, and said that he will continue to manage Nova Uniao fighters Diego Nunes, Luis Ramos and Johnny Eduardo.
