Ed Soares Says Chael Sonnen Should Fight Demian Maia First

<p>Prior to UFC 109, UFC President Dana White told fans and media that the middleweight matchup between Chael Sonnen and Nate Marquardt would decide who would be the number one contender to the middleweight title. Sonnen dominated the bout on route to a three round unanimous decision victory. Now, following Sonnens verbal tirade at Anderson Silva prior to UFC 109 and the win over Marquardt, Silvas manager and mouth piece Ed Soares comes to the forefront to play UFC match maker again and says Sonnen doesn't deserve a shot:</p><br /><br /><br /><p><em>&quot;We've spoken with Chael on many occasions and have the utmost respect for him. He's never really come across in this manner, and it's obvious he's just drumming up hype in hopes to get a bout with Anderson. We are fine if this is what the UFC wants, but if you look at this logistically, Sonnen should fight Demian Maia first. Demian beat up easily, by submission, so why not make them fight first, to determine who gets a shot at the title? It's funny, but really, who actually listens to what Chael Sonnen has to say? The only time people listen is when he talks about Anderson. Who is he, really? If you walk down the street and you mention his name, does anyone really know who this guy is? Likely not, but if you mention Anderson Silva, people know the name. Chael's also said a few things about Anderson's choice of clothes and that he wears earrings, didn't he? Sounds to us like he may have a crush on Anderson.&quot;</em></p>
