Ed Soares Says He Doesn’t Pick Anderson Silva’s Fights

February 1, 2013 | Posted by Larry Csonka

- Ed Soares recently spoke about not picking Anderson Silva’s fights and more. Here are the highlights…

On Anderson’s Fights: “Sometimes people ask me, and I just say what’s on my mind at the time. I’m just mentioning things. It’s not like I’m stepping in there and demanding things from (UFC President) Dana (White). It’s not that sort of relationship I have with them.”

Does Anderson Choose His Opponents?: “Anderson has never chosen his opponent, never picked his opponent. Whoever the UFC put it front of him, he always accepted.”

On Anderson’s Future: “I’d like to see Anderson fight a half dozen more times, but we have to take it each step one day at a time,” he said. “At the end of the day, it’s his decision, but definitely I’d love to see him leave undefeated in the UFC and the middleweight champion of the world. To me, he’s the greatest fight of all time, and I’d like to see him leave that way.”
