MMA Manager Ed Soares has been named the new president of Resurrection Fighting Alliance. Soares confirmed the news with MMAFighting.com on Tuesday.
Soares, who manages the likes of Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida and the Nogueira brothers, will continue to manage his stable of fighters, along with his partner Jorge Guimaraes.
"We still have a management business," Soares said. "This announcement has no bearing on anything.
"I'm not relieving any of my responsibilities as a manager, I'm just taking on a little more responsibility elsewhere."
Soares noted that if a fighter he represents would be courted by RFA in the future Guimaraes will negotiate the deal with the promotion and he will remove himself from the equation.
"I'm really excited to step into another chapter of a my life," Soares said. "I come from a promotional background from running various promotions, and I'm excited to get back in there."Link
