    i’m really looking forward to seeing this, maybe more so than Strikeforce.
    Although Silva/Arlovski is getting me pretty excited

    Apparently this fight got cancelled? Disappointing.

  • MMASwami says:

    Well apparently the whole show is canceled now. Very disappointing :( Really wanted to see how the Mayorga-Thomas fight played out. A lot of fighters that need these pay checks going to go without it seems. Shitty situation.

  • danw84 says:

    The whole show? Damn. I wasn’t going to get it, but was looking forward to seeing the results.

    That really sucks for the fighters.

  • hindsightufuk says:

    ah no shit? what happened?

  • Apparently the Athletic Commission shut them down. I haven’t heard of a reason yet, though. Sucks for all the fighters who were ready to go. I wanted to see Ninja fight again…

  • Rece Rock says:

    The judge sided with don king on tbe promotional contract dispute…

  • The judge did side with Don King, but that only pulled the main event out. Ninja’s fight was pushed as the main event after that happened and then the Commission shut them down for a still unexplained reason.

  • soundspawn says:

    Sounds as though the promotion failed to get the fighters “to show” money in the hands of the commission by a deadline, so the commission shut them down as part of their usual procedure.

    If that’s true, shame on Shine Fights. These guys aren’t very good with reading contracts, are they?

  • fanoftna33 says:

    this sucks I really wanted to see ninja fight

  • Rece Rock says:

    Does the Commission decide if the fighters still get some compensation for matters out of there control?… if not that sucks! Nice job Shine! This is why we need one Big league Promotion and 2 small Farm promotions…professional fighting is going to be more dangerous for the fighters bank accounts than in the cage eventually.
