The Houston Chronicle sounds pissed about some “confusion” about a canceled Silva appearance in H-town.

MFS Houston released this official statement regarding the cancellation of this weekend’s seminar with Anderson “The Spider” Silva.

Chronicle MMA Community,

We want to issue an official statement regarding the seminar that was suppose to take place this weekend with Anderson “Spider” Silva. We received a phone call last night from Anderson’s manager Ed informing us that the seminar was going to be canceled due to a personal family health issues. Obviously, we were taken a back and concerned for Anderson and his family. We were also very disappointed for all of our students and fans who had planned to attend our seminar this weekend.

It was brought to our attention this morning that Anderson and Nogueria are both having a two-day seminar at their grand opening event in Miami. If this is true then we have been completely misled and as you can imagine we are furious at this. We are doing our due diligence to confirm that this is really happening. If this is true we will take all legal recourse possible.

We are extremely sorry for all those who planned on attending this event!
