One person who got a kick out of the whole thing was Silva’s friend and manager, Ed Soares, who took the fight in cageside Saturday night in Las Vegas.
“Speaking to my business partner Jorge [Guimaraes], he said that was one of the greatest shoots he’d ever seen,” Soares said during an appearance on the MMA Hour on Monday. “Nick Diaz going and laying down, Nick Diaz doing what he was doing, and not only doing that…but doing that to Anderson Silva?
“I mean, if you’re going to lay down in a mixed martial arts fight in the UFC, you’ve got to have balls. But to do that against Anderson Silva, dude, you’re an a**hole, man. That guy’s got balls.”
