Ed Soares: Anderson Silva Has Never Turned Down A Fight | UFC NEWS


“I mean, you know what? There’s a lot of things going on. I mean as far as competitors. I think all of them, I look at Anderson’s career and I just want Anderson being involved in the biggest fights possible.

Unfortunately, in the middleweight division right now, it’s kind of a little bit murky in that area because the guys who are out there earning their shots aren’t very potentially big fights. There’s just not a huge amount of fights right now. So I think we need the dust to settle a little bit, let Anderson let his body rest. He’s not a young guy anymore, he’s 37 years old and he wants to take some time between his fights.

At the end of the day whoever the UFC puts in front of us, we’ve never turned down a fight. Not only Anderson but none of our fighters have ever turned down a fight. Whoever the UFC deems is best then we’ll go ahead and take it. We’ll cross that bridge when it comes.”

While talking to Sirius XM Sports, Ed Soares, the main man behind Black House MMA talks about Anderson Silva and the rest of his stable of fighters and their willingness to fight anyone the UFC asks of them.

    GTFO of here with that shit. Fight Weidman!

  4. danielrchargers says:

    Last I heard Anderson speak he had good English. So why are we listening to this guy?

  5. yeah anderson doesn’t turn down fights his camp does it for him

  6. Noah says:

    Ed Soares is a real joke…..at on point he says this and that guy doesn’t deserve the title shot…another time he says whoever..shut the fuck up!! AS got title shot after one fight with “Crippler” Leben. Why don’t Weidman deserve after five fight win streak?

    • ballsackface says:

      im afraid thats how it works mate. anderson came in with a solid record
      they were gonna do the same with hector had he beaten tim but he failed and his record was tarnished

    • Shogun says:

      That was six years ago , everyone was getting title shots , times have changed !!!!

  7. Phantom weight says:

    Just fight weidman,smash him up real quik so we can c you send GSP to an early retirement.besides i cant be the only one thats sick of this crybaby.

  8. Kong says:

    You guys are the jokes Ed soarres is making that money and your a nobody sitting here out of work talking about how he is a joke. Let’s see- man who makes a lot of money having everyone’s dream job, or unemployed keyboard warrior. Which one is the real joke?

  9. Chael Sonnen says:

    hey Ed Soares, FUCK YOU!

  10. jmannski says:

    Weidman would need facial reconstruction surgery after fighting anderson. The skill level is not even comparable. His biggest win was ring rusty munoz. Way to earn a title shot.

  11. CombatRusse says:

    I believe Ed Soares on this point.
    Anderson Silva is just a superstar, like Mayweather and I think that he earned the right to pick up his opponents. And he is not choosing easy fights at all. Fighting GSP is far from being a joke.

  12. derp says:

    i second that one combat!

  13. Dee says:

    They don’t have to explain anything to poor simple minded hillbillies who do not know anything about the fighting industry. Most of you guys just started watching mma and are just jumping to conclusions. Silva didn’t duck Henderson, Franklin, Sonnen, Belfort, Griffin or anyone else. It’s all hype to convince idiots who can’t read in between the lines to see that it’s marketing coercion. If Weidman really is the #1 contender why don’t he let his performances speak for itself because if he’s as good as he says he is, then we all would see. I like Bisping because this guy has fought everyone and hasn’t hid from one person. He in my opinion deserves a shot. He took the Chuck Liddell approach and just fought. He has fought everyone from Henderson, Rivera, Wanderlei to Sonnen and now Brian Stan. This guy is an asshole, but at least he backs it up.
