There is some controversy growing about a cancelation of Anderson Silva’s seminar in the Houston area. Jared Barnes has all the details right here. What makes the story interesting is that in a May 5th news update on our site, we posted a link to a South Florida Sun-Sentinel news article titled UFC champions Antonio Nogueira, Anderson Silva partnering on fight academy in downtown Miami. If the accusations/allegations in the Barnes report are true, then the supposed ‘cover’ wasn’t exactly a well-kept secret.
