Ed Soares, best known to most MMA fans as the manager of top fighters like Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida, has taken on a new job as president of Resurrection Fighting Alliance.

A mainstay of the MMA scene for many years, Soares has worked with many of the top fighters in the worldwide market, most notably numerous competitors out of Brazil.

Now the manager will look to apply his business acumen to the Nebraska based fight promotion Resurrection Fighting Alliance starting immediately.

Speaking to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday, Soares was excited about starting a new chapter in his MMA life, but stressed that nothing changes in regards to his work with the fighters he represents.

Soares and his partner Jorge Guimaraes will still be working with all of the fighters on their roster, as well as “creating a new infrastructure” to help all of the athletes on their client list. Soares will still be active in negotiations and other parts of the business, but now adds on a new job to his increasing resume in the MMA industry.

The next Resurrection Fighting Alliance show will take place in October according to Soares, and he says the remainder of the promotion’s schedule has already been laid out for 2012, but over the “next 8 to 12 months” is when his role will become more important as they look to land a television deal and expand their footprint in the fight world.

Several former UFC fighters have fought under the Resurrection Fighting Alliance banner in the past including Jens Pulver, Gilbert Yvel, and Joe Stevenson as well as top prospectsc currently signed there like Team Alpha Male featherweight Lance Palmer.

The news of Soares’ new role with the promotion was initially reported by MMAFighting.com.
