Anderson Silva's manager Ed Soares recently sat down with Sherdog's 'Rewind' radio to discuss the champion's future plans. Who did he think was deserving of a title fight and who did he think was not? Chael Sonnen has laid down the gauntlet, but does he deserve it? And what about Michael Bisping?

Soares on whether Chael Sonnen should get the next title shot against Anderson Silva: “Anderson just feels that he doesn’t deserve it yet. He doesn’t deserve it yet. … A lot of people are interested in the fight. It’s a big fight. Anderson’s not ducking him. Anderson, right now, is focused on recouping his shoulder, and basically he’s going through physical therapy on that just to get that back 100 percent.

But you know what? Whoever Dana [White] puts in front of us, for the most part, we’re always going to take the fight. [Anderson has] never dodged any fights. It’s really not up to us to determine. … I’m not saying that’s who we want or who we don’t want. People ask my opinion, and I see what Anderson’s saying. He’s fought him once. He had his opportunity, but hey, if Dana wants to put the fight on again, we’ll cross that bridge when it comes.”

On whether Michael Bisping would be a suitable challenger if he beats Jason Miller: “I’ll be honest with you: I never even really thought of Bisping too much. Not that I didn’t respect him as a fighter -- I do. It was just that it didn’t cross my mind because there’s so many things happening all the time. People talk about Chael and Brian Stann, and sometimes people are focused on the TUF show. But I think Bisping could be a good opportunity. GSP could be a good opportunity. There’s a lot of great opportunities, and I do think the Chael fight could potentially sell. It could be a big seller. I think it could be a huge pay-per-view. So I see all angles of it, but I’m just expressing what Anderson has talked to me about. That’s how he feels.”

 But Soares has it right: the decision on who Silva fights will be the UFCs.  All he is giving is his preferences.

Duck!

Chael clearly doesn't deserve it. Let's see a real challenge like.... Bisping! LOL

Leben, Lutter, Cote, Irvin, Maia, Leites, Marquardt and Bisping. Man, what a legacy. Phone Post

To me, giving Silva the fight of his life and finishing Stann who has been a wrecking machine should put you right there again.

Really no one is really left: Munoz Is the only reasonable answer right now IF he beats Leben. If Silva doesnt fight Sonnen what does he do?

His only other choice is move him to LHW and let him run for the title: Silva vs Evans, Davis, Hendo/Shogun winner and JBJ all sounds good to me Phone Post

 I'll consider it a tuck when the fight is offered and AS turns it down.  until then, it's all just speculation.

I am God here!
Soares works for Anderson as his manager. Anderson does not work for Soares. So, if you hear Soares say that he doesn't think Chael should get a shot. That is Soares saying what Anderson is telling him to say.

So the bottom line is...Anderson does NOT want to fight Chael.

And I don't blame him after the ass whoppin that Chael put on him last time, I wouldn't want to fight that guy again either.

hahaha!

Yeah Chael beat his ass for 98% of the fight. So he doesn't deserve it.

Oh Bisping? Yeah, he would be a great opportunity!! bring it on c'mon! The smaller GSP! Another great opp! High 5! Let's do it! Chael? Oh, noooo... no way man.

This is why Anderson doesn't deserve the greatest ever. Him and Ed never complain when its a smaller man he's supposed to beat that's talked about. Someone strong, you ALWAYS get their counter thoughts on why it shouldn't happen. Always. Say what you want about GSP being safe, at least he fights any and all without hesitation, in a tough division, without cross talk of why it shouldn't happen. Can the supposed #1 P4P say that? He will never fight Jon Jones because he knows the outcome and his nut huggers erase his incentive to man up. #1 P4P for what? Beating a who's who of GateKeeper magazine? In their "safest division" edition?

 Don't bring a fair and objective opinion to this thread...

The UG "News" clearly wants this to be a bashing and ducking thread for all the mental midgets...

 Your comprehension skills are lacking seriously.

Since you say that Soares speaks for Anderson, then you should be able to grasp that Anderson feels Chael doesn't DESERVE to fight Anderson again, in his OPINION. You should also then be able to comprehend that Anderson will take ANY fight that Zuffa wants him to take.

But clearly your little brain cannot discern the difference between an opinion on who deserves a title fight, and what the champ is willing to do: fight anyone Zuffa tells him to.  I know that takes like a 5th grade comprehension level, but try a little harder okay?

 Yep, and example would be Overeem...lol

Or back when Zuffa first tried to get GSP vs Anderson and he said he was not interested...

According to Dana White, Anderson has NEVER turned down a title fight he was offered. EVER.
