Soares: Weidman and Silva should fight, in Brazil

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Anderson Silva’s manager Ed Soares spoke with Brazil’s UOL Esporte and said he thinks Chris Weidman should get a title shot, in Brazil.

“Anderson has never refused a fight. If you ask him to face the devil, he will take it. Why did he refuse Weidman? He simply thinks he is still not someone to fight for the belt.

“I have nothing against Chris; I think he’s a great person. But if you ask people, no one knows who he is. They’ll have to spend a lot of money promoting this fight. Anderson has more title defenses than he has professional fights.”

“Anderson has told me he really wants to fight in Brazil again. Weidman himself once told me he would be interested in the fight here. So I think that’s what should happen.”
