by Michael David Smith | source:

A day after we noted that DirecTV, alone among major carriers, had chosen to offer Friday night's Shine Fights pay-per-view card but not Saturday night's Shark Fights card, DirecTV has changed course. With Shine Fights' event moving from a sanctioned show in Virginia to an unsanctioned show on a tribal territory in Oklahoma, DirecTV decided not to offer Shine Fights anymore.

"We pulled it off the schedule given the possibility that the event may be canceled based on the last-minute venue change and we do not want to put our customers in the position having to get refunds," DirecTV said in a statement to

Seriously, I have no confidence that this show will go down, haven't for about 10 days now.  What signs point that they would? At this point, I just hope all the fighters get paid, if it happens or not. I also hope no one gets hurt and if someone were to get seriously hurt or even killed in fighting 41 minutes in an unsanctioned event(God Forbid) I hope some heads roll. Jose Cansaco vs. Danny Boniducie as a strikeforce headliner would be better for MMA as a whole than this bullshit.

I was planning on purchasing. Guess I'll have to go to Wal-Mart and buy all of the Elite XC events on DVD instead.

MFC is friday and it's ten times the card Shine is. Even if it was on Directv, now that even Aurelio is off the card WTF would you be paying for? No main event and a C Level Grand Prix.
