Matchmaker Joe Silva Leaving UFC
MMA Junkie – UFC matchmaker Joe Silva has informed the company that he will leave his job with the organization, possibly as soon as the end of 2016, MMAjunkie has learned from a person close to the situation.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not publicly authorized to discuss the matter.
Silva’s departure will come on the heels of the UFC’s sale to a group headed up by talent agency WME-IMG, a deal that Silva is said to have profited from as a company executive.
That financial gain, and not any discontent with the sale or new owners, is motivating Silva’s decision to retire, the source said.
With the payout he received as a result of the sale, the source said Silva plans to retire to spend more time with his family.
I can’t blame Joe Silva for this move. When you put in a lot of hard work, dedication, time and effort into something you love and it pays off with millions of dollars, you should retire young and enjoy the rest of your life drinking cold beer on the beach with your family. After this blog goes big time, I am ditching BDA Radio, dating a Victoria Secret model (sorry Brittany, you had a good run), buying a yacht and drinking bud light until my liver explodes. Don’t judge me on my choice of beer either. You either drink Bud Light or you are a terrorist. Screw all of you craft beer drinkers. There is no way you can taste the hint of spice and whatever bull-crap lines they feed you. If the bartender gives you the wrong beer, you do not even notice. Sucks about Joe!!!
