Anderson Silva vs. Carlos Newton OFF!
By Eduardo Alonso

      Though it looked like the man who just beat Hayato Sakurai in Shooto, Chute Boxe sensation Anderson Silva, would be facing Carlos Newton in UFC 34 for the welterweight title, negotiations have fallen through according to the Chute Boxe team. Silva decided against the proposed fight with current UFC Welterweight champion Carlos Newton at the next UFC on November 2nd. FCF was told today by the Chute Boxe camp that the UFC wanted Anderson to sign an exclusive deal with them, but the Chute Boxe star wants to have the opportunity to fight in other events as well, such as MECA and Pride. In the end both parties couldn’t reach an agreement, and Anderson himself decided not to take the match.
      " It was the fighter’s decision, this fight isn’t going to happen anymore. Anderson will fight for MECA again in the future, and will continue
with his career," said Chute Boxe coach Rudimar Fedrigo.
