“I think there’s no question Chael’s deserving of a rematch with Anderson. I mean he pushed him as far as anybody ever pushed him, it was one of the best fights of the year, but the biggest thing is this is the fight the fans want. Dana and everyone are all about giving the fans what they want, and there his no question that this is the fight the fans want to see… The bottom line is it doesn’t matter what I think and it doesn’t matter what Ed thinks. It matters what Dana (White) thinks. Ed’s not the matchmaker, I’m not the matchmaker, you’re not the matchmaker. Joe Silva and Dana White make the matches.”

Manager to Chael Sonnen, Mr. Mike Roberts, talked to recently about the reaction from the Anderson Silva camp in regards to the rematch between the two fighters.

While the fight is not booked, Ed Soares recently went on HDNet’s Inside MMA and expressed his discontent with the proposed challenger and possibility of a rematch and stated that “Chael needs to get back at the end of the line.”

At the end of the day, Roberts reminds us all, including the Silva camp, that the brass at the UFC make the matches, not the fighters or their managers.
