UFC Featherweight Champ Jose Aldo Drops Ed Soares As Manager
The Black House management team headed up by Ed Soares and Jorge Guimaraes has lost another star athlete amongst their roster.
After managing the likes of Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida, Junior Dos Santos and Jose Aldo the famed management team has taken another hit to their roster of champions.
First to leave the group was Junior Dos Santos shortly before his UFC heavyweight title shot against Cain Velasquez and now his featherweight counterpart has followed in his path.
Brazilian media outlet Tatame.com has the scoop:
The career of the UFC featherweight champion, Jose Aldo, is again in the hands of Nova Uniao head coach Andre Pederneiras, and not with Jorge Guimarães and Ed Soares also as his managers.
“I’m his only manager now,” said Pederneiras. “We’ve sat down, talked and found it was the best way to go. Since things are happening in Brazil now, we thought it was the best call.”
Pederneiras trained and managed Aldo until he entered the WEC, when the fighter started to be managed by Black House.
