David Heath to file suit against Shine Fights

by Damon Martin | source: mmaweekly.com

The trouble stemming from Shine Fights botched May 15 show in North Carolina continue to haunt the promotion as another fighter who was set to participate on the card is claiming non-payment, and is ready to take them to court.

David Heath, who was tapped as a late replacement to face Murilo "Ninja" Rua in the main event on the card, says that he has not received any payment from Shine Fights for his contracted participation on the card, and will be filing suit against the promotion next week.

Several fighters have claimed non-payment or partial payment for their part in the Shine Fights card that was canceled after multiple issues concerning a bond that was not received in time by the North Carolina commission, as well as a doctor not being secured in a timely manner for the show.

Reminds me of a shotty homegrown promotion like what i have where i'm living,sad thing is these guy's are actually flipping a good amount of money around doing this,how much you want to bet when this is all said and done and they are defunct and jason has taken about all the heat they can put on him for this they push through with another promotion with a new face and hide behind it.Con-men are everywhere and it really feels like that's who is running this promotion,i kept my opinion to myself until i could read up on everything and i mean at this point how could a commish ever license them again? D.O.A IMO

He knew what he was getting into and is a willing participant in what is going on.  No poor Jason.

 Jason Chambers pleading ignorance on getting guys from the last show paid when he is the CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER of the company is disgusting.  He was on the radio in early June promising up and down to get everyone paid, and now he's "wasn't privy to the agreements with Heath".  You're the COO dude, make yourself privy to the agreements with Heath and take care of them.  Same guy who on this forum said if anyone can show him an unfulfilled agreement that wasn't satisfied and he would quit right?  Jason Chambers has shown himself to be entirely comfortable to be as full of shit as Devin at this point.
