Some call him the manager of champions, but Ed Soares just calls himself lucky to work with such a great group of fighters.
With roots in the sponsorship business back when he founded Sinister Clothing, Soares made a trip to Japan for the Pride Grand Prix several years ago and he found himself right in the middle of the chance to start representing fighters himself.
Fast forward to less than a decade later and Soares is one of the top managers in all of MMA working with fighters like Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida, Jose Aldo and both Nogueira brothers.
Soares is the latest manager featured in MMAWeekly.com's 'Guy Behind the Guy' series, and he opens up about how he got involved in the business and the perception out that that he somehow hand picks fights for his fighters as well as his translation skills.
