With high-profile Brazilian mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters -- Jose Aldo, Junior dos Santos and Mauricio Rua -- releasing their managers such as Ed Soares and Eduardo Alonso, respectively, it is unsurprising that certain questions are beginning to surface.

What's the deal?

Though details are few and far between, one cannot fully understand what goes on between a manager and his client. Things such as negotiations, percentages owed for services and conflicts that may arise between the two --unless you are right smack in the middle of the action -- is often times unknown.

The reasons behind departures could be endless, yet explanations will probably be few. Just ask Soares, he simply received an email for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight champion's trainer that his services were no longer needed.

I'm sure Shogun will be able to hold stern negotiations and push for that little bit more that managers usually push for.

Possibly the stupidest move by a professional athlete I've ever seen.

Thats what I was thinking.

EDIT:
I take that back the biggest mistake by a pro athlete had to be Ricky Williams letting Master P work his contract
