Ed Soares seems like a shady, shady dude. He isn’t honest in his translations to English and I’m sure he’s not honest with his translations back to Portuguese either. Now that JDS speaks fluent English he doesn’t need Ed and surely there are countless successful agencies looking to snatch him up.
Since I have no contacts in the industry….I seem to keep returning to a lengthy chat I had @ the last UFC I attended w/Shogun’s main sponsor (Nutrabolics or s’thing??) sitting next to me. He said Soares is a complete cockface. Not only is the guy a fucking asshole but he blows off appearances & shit @ his own whimsy.
