Sounds like Ed Soares, manager for UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, needs to keep a low profile at UFC events, lest Chris Weidman sees him and starts harping on him for a 2013 "Spider" fight. Anyone think Soares is influencing his champion one way or the other?

He's very confident and he's a good fighter and we'll see what happens. At the end of the day, we don't pick our opponents. A lot of times people want to say, 'Oh Ed, you picked that!' People ask for my opinion and I give my opinion. Chris Weidman? If he's next, the UFC will make that fight happen. Hopefully, we'll see him in Brazil."
