Fighters Only reported today that Anderson Silva is being sued by his former manager, Rudimar Fedrigo, the owner of Chute Box, for damage of reputation based on comments Silva made in his autobiography.
Fedrigo has taken legal action, suing Silva for comments indicating he’s “a bad person” and is also claiming for moral indemnification due to accusations made by Silva in the autobiography. It was also made official by the court based on Fedrigo’s request, that no copies of the autobiography be sold until the lawsuit is over.
In an excerpt from Fighters Only, Rudimar was distraught and confused that Anderson Silva went to such lengths to derail Chute Box, who represented many PRIDE-FC fighters when the organization was in it’s prime. Here’s the excerpt:
It was Chute Boxe who introduced Anderson to the MMA market, says Fedrigo, who calls the Muay Thai specialist an ungrateful person. “I was the manager who took him to compete outside Brazil. I consider ingratitude to be one of the sins that men don’t recognize in themselves and he has proved to be very ungrateful with these gestures.”
Rudimar is perplexed because he recently met Anderson at a hotel room before an edition of Jungle Fight and the UFC champion approached him respectfully. Now the Chute Boxe agent is bothered by the situation created between them.
