In a recent interview with Yahoo Sports, MMA manager Ed Soares recently compared the "Three Kings"-Anderson Silva, Lyoto Machida & Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira-he manages to Bentley & Toyota dealerships in terms of quantity vs. quality. In other words, he feels he's got a garage full of Bentleys. "When you look at the car dealership, well, thank God there are Toyota dealers. There’s nothing wrong with Toyotas. They’re great cars, reliable cars, but there are 3,000 of them on the lot. Walk into a Bentley dealership, though, and there are only 12, 15 cars in the place. There are two things about that: The guy’s walking in to buy the car, and you know they’re not going to be negotiating price when they’re buying a Bentley. And that’s how I feel about our fighters. You want one of our fighters, you’re going to get a high-performance fighter."

That is one helluva a retarted allegation.

Peoples is just a terrible judge while Soares manages great fighters.

I do not see the connection.

I think he's pushing at the Machida decision.
