Shine Fights expected to announce TV deal

by Damon Martin | source: mmaweekly.com
 

Shine Fights has been looking to make some major moves recently including the signing of former “Ultimate Fighter” winner Efrain Escudero to a contract. Now the upstart organization appears on the verge of signing a deal to bring their brand of MMA to cable television.

Shine Fights COO Jason Chambers revealed the news to MMAWeekly.com in an exclusive interview on Tuesday.

“For all intensive purposes we’ve come to an agreement,” Chambers said about the new TV deal. “It’s just a matter of dotting the “I”s and crossing the “T”s.”

While Chambers stopped short of naming which network would get the rights for Shine Fights, he did say it was a recognizable name that fans of MMA will be able to access with ease.

“It’s definitely a network that everyone will be familiar with,” Chambers disclosed. “It’s a network that I think is the right size and the right scope for where we are.”

I think it's good for MMA in general that Shine is getting a TV deal. Excellent tourney recently, not sure why people rip on Chambers for things he didn't do.

 Jason Chambers is doing a tremendous job as the COO of Shine. I'm looking forward to seeing what this television deal has in store for the company. This plus OMA on regular TV equals BIG BUSINESS!

 ^^^^^ I haven't heard otherwise, and I'd assume they would want the good PR that making good on their promises would generate. You don't have to go off of memory, I linked his Tapout radio interview on this thread.  He states that all fighters will get paid clear as day.  He said they may not get all of their purse, but everyone would get something for sure.  Devin Price made similar claims in the aftermath of the NC show.  Their organization did not make good on that promise. You can say Chambers wasn't COO (whatever the fuk COO of a small time fight promotion means, I'm going to name myself emperor of a laundromat I'm about to buy too...) at the time of the NC debacle, I say he was COO at the time he was promising to anyone that would let him on air that the fighters would be taken care of.  They were not taken care of.  They chose to move along and pretend like it never happened.  Some may not have a problem with that, they just want to see fights.  Personally, I have a problem with that.

 Funny.. because I remember him on these very message boards saying exactly what jjj2121 described above.  He wasn't with them until after the disaster.. true.  But he was definitely involved with the clean up. However, I have no idea if jjj2121's claims about people not getting paid are still accurate.
