Soares Thinks Sonnen Should Fight Maia Before Silva

Guess who?

“We are fine if this is what the UFC wants, but if you look at this logistically, Sonnen should fight Demian Maia first. Demian beat up easily, by submission, so why not make them fight first, to determine who gets a shot at the title?”

Yep, that’s Ed Soares vetoing another title contender for Anderson Silva. It’s definitely becoming a pattern. First it was Dan Henderson, then it was Nate Marquardt followed by Vitor Belfort. Basically no one in the middleweight division is worthy enough to fight Anderson Silva if you ask Soares. Good thing he’s not the matchmaker, otherwise Silva would never fight anybody.
