Ed Soares, the manager for UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, made a plea to the Brazilian faithful during a recent interview with Portal Do Vale Tudo.
Hopefully, people will understand that they shouldn’t do anything against Chael, just boo him. Let Anderson settle this with him in the Octagon. It will be very bad for Brazil if something happens to him. The guy is an idiot, but he is promoting the fight and it will be the greatest MMA fight of all time.
Silva and Sonnen will meet for the second time in the main event of UFC 147 on June 23 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The bout is set to take place inside a soccer stadium, with 80,000 fans planned – all of which will be very focal against Sonnen.
