There are many facets to being a match maker besides just pairing two fighters up. It was a tedious process to find high quality fighters, that not only were willing to fight three fights in one night, but that we thought the fans would like to see fight each other.

In respect to having the "fans pick the fights", we wanted to take into consideration the match ups fans wanted to see. If this was just a regular fight card we would never do such a thing, however, being a tournament format, we thought it would add interest to the card.

Then where does that leave us? Proof to support claims, and willing to go on record about the issues?orLet's claim it's all a lie made up by a journalist and then copied by dozens of other people....oh and the ABC, NC commission, and VA commission are all full of it?

That's what I am saying, one side keeps showing their evidence while the other side just claims to have proof but not showing it.

People have seen these docs. And there is a reason why they are on the "no one got paid" side of tings.

 Yea, I can honestly say I think that Gabe Rudiger would have done a better job.

Ruh roh. DIRECTV has decided not to air the Shine Fights event. Don't know if this is because of public appeals or not, but I do know that they had some people contacting them and trying to get Shine removed in favour of the Shark Fights event. Really, though, this decision should come as a surprise to no one. It's an unsanctioned event at a small casino in Oklahoma with no commission present, put on by a promotion that has been lying to anyone who will listen for months. Edit:  Gah, Stephie already posted about this. Oh well, the point stands!

"Have Price/Chambers actually shown that they wired the money or have they just continued to claim to have the proof?I know they claimed to have proof that they did but the only people that seem to be showing proof are on the "no one got paid" side of the argument."
