On an exclusive interview with TATAME, he explained his reasons.
“What happened what that Eduardo believed in a line of working and I trust another one. He believed my career should be managed by one guy, I don’t agree with that”, said, pointing out the issues they disagree on.
“To me, some guys has to be leading my training, and it is Andre Dida, a marketing team to accessorize me and a manager. He didn’t agree with that and said he already knew it could happen”, explains.
Eduardo Alonso started working with Mauricio since his lost to Forrest Griffin in the UFC, and has been with him all the way to the belt, and also after that, when he fought Forrest Griffin again and then Dan Henderson.
Despite the close of the partnership, Shogun says the friendship continues. “We broke up in good terms, we are still friends, independently of not working together anymore”, said the fighter, who has no manager yet. “I have talked to some people, but I haven’t closed anything”.
