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.

He could probably cough up 12k quickly by going on a diet.

Fatty.

I want to feel anger, but after that photo all I feel is pity.

This guy has a crooked past and I'm shocked that Ed would do business with him.

We made him send the equipment and a check and only returned the items when the check cleared.

Randy Harris from Talking Sports was also very verbal about this guy not following through. When in doubt I always watch this video

Well Ed, I know one thing for sure...."Homie didn't spend the 12 grand on capping his f..... teeth~! lol. And why everyone's at it, put "Scruffy Murphy's" from Australia on the list of crooks! They never sent me my $1,000 Sponsor money for UFC 127. NOTE:(this does not reflect on Australian people, because the Aussies were Awesome)

grkblood, Bro, if Ed would have known the man was a crook, he sure wouldn't have done business with him! Did you read the article, where it said the man had never been in trouble before? How was Ed suppose to know? Impossible to police every single potential sponsor! People can be very sneaky. I had a "LAWYER" handling my sponsors, and we still got ripped off!
