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 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.

    I wonder what happened, if there was a falling out or something.

  5. ThaGreenBandit says:

    For some reason, I dont’ find that surprising at all, and it wouldn’t surprise me if Anderson eventually ended up dropping him too

  6. Mike McMack says:

    I hope this begins a trend will all Ed’s clients.

      brazil still owns 3 belts out of the 7 available. pretty damn good if u ask me!

      • Chartmonster says:

        For now! Aldo is straight up Muay thai from mother land so he can keep his belt. The other two will be given to two MONSTERS, and you know who they are!

        • mmaislandjunkie says:

          wrong. aldo silva and jds arent losing their belts any time soon. in fact i see aldo getting two belts before the year is out! lol nah idk thats a tough fight to call if aldo ever faces frankie edgar.

          Wrong Sonnen will beat Silva and Overeem will beat dos santos and if he dont Werdum will, and Henderson will beat Edgar Easily and then Edgar will go get smashed by Aldo
