Ed Soares irate over fighter non payment


Ed Soares is one of the leading managers in MMA, and recently called out West Coast Authentic for failure to pay, via Twitter.

Ed Soares ‏@edblackhouse
Just so everyone is aware Jason from @WestcoastAuth is a Crook!! They have owed our fighters over $12k since December of 2011.

The Kelowna, BC, Canada based business retails autographed sports memorabilia, including their Authentic MMA line. If you want to inquire about the matter with West Coast Authentic, owner Jason Bobbitt's twitter is @WestcoastAuth

Joe Show Radio's Brad Smith pointed out that Bobbitt has a previous conviction for defrauding customers out of $300,000, a circumstance that could leave him in a truly precarious position if the current situation is not promptly corrected.

The owner of the now-defunct Crazy Canuck Ltd. was sentenced to five months of house arrest and two years of probation for selling items on eBay, but not delivering.

Jason Bobbitt, formerly of Fredericton, Nova Scotia but now living on the opposite coast of Canada, took over $300,000 in payments for sports cards and memorabilia from buyers all over North America. Business was good enough to open two storefronts but that's apparently when everything went south.

Not having been in trouble before and making an attempt to pay his customers back was apparently enough for prosecutors to agree to the plea deal. The Daily Gleaner says he's also being forced to pay back what he owes.
