Just weeks after UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar split from manager Shari Spencer, the top 155lb fighter in the world has now signed on with new representation.

Sources have indicated to MMAWeekly.com that Edgar will now begin working with Dominance MMA headed up by Ali Abdel-Aziz, who along with Edgar’s wife Renee, will handle Edgar’s management going forward.

With his new management do you think he'll now declare Jihad on the lightweight division?

interesting. I know GSP trains a fair amount with Renzo, so I wonder if the same people help convince him to leave Shari as well...

Shari's boyfriend used to be the Witch Doctor. If that is still current, Edgar must fear the voodoo.

Reckoner - What's Spencer's deal? Why is everyone leaving her?
Well, I'm pretty sure she only had 2 MMA clients, GSP and Edgar.  From what I have heard, she was taking a huge cut of their earnings.  GSP had a major marketing firm approach him and tell him that they would do it for much less of a cut, not to mention the much better connections other agencies have.

 He is signed with CAA (probably the best sports agency in the world), not sure who his personal manager is.  People usually pick a close friend or family member.  Think a similar situation to Eric (close friend) and Ari (primary agent) on Entourage.

There was a news piece some time after dropping Shari saying it was a friend of his who works in Finance.

This is basically the business model of every major sports athlete (see Lebron as an example)

As a general rule, having your wife as your manager is a bad idea.

LOL...man, that just sounds like a bad idea...and LOL at "finance"....that's such a vague and general term...these days, that could mean anything from being a bank teller to a guy selling mutual funds to being Lloyd Blankfein's right hand man.
