Soares: Weidman ‘driving me crazy’ about Silva fight

Thursday, February 07, 2013

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?

“Chris Weidman, I saw him in Chicago last Saturday and he was driving me crazy! He kept asking me, ‘Hey, let’s make that fight happen!’ 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.

Hopefully, we’ll see him in Brazil.”
