Let it be known that Shine paid Derrick Noble in full. Shine lost an arm and a leg and took care of the fighters at their own expense. For all the bad press that Shine has received, I don't think many organizations would have done the same.

 

If asked, me and/or the fighters I represent will happily fight for Shine in the future.

 That's great to hear when orgs like Bamma had guys who actually fought and still haven't been paid.

 Wow that is awesome.  I'm really interested to here when their next event will happen and how all of the press (good and bad) will effect the event.  It would seem the fighters are happy, but are the fans?

Well, that is awesome.

Remember when the UG had to twist STRIKEFORCE's arm to get the two guys paid who didn't fight on the Fedor vs. Rogers show in Chicago?

Shine... 1 down and 19 more to go (and not partial payments either.) Had they paid for their bond to begin with the commission would have paid the fighters.

 didnt even bother reading one  post after urs nick..and u know i have the upmost respect for you..

but i am going to be blunt...

How the fuk can anyone  pat someone on the back for doing the right thing...and what they are supposed to do in the 1st place? Its not like the money they potentially made was going into cancer research...thats bizness..and people go in and outa bizness every day...

again Nick... I repect the hell out of you...and ur an attorney...well its like a guy saying ''well i didnt rat''   ...well well motherfukers no one put a gun to ur head to committ the crime before u got caught did they?

THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO PAY....JUST BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE DONT DOESNT MAKE ANYTHING THEY DID NOBLE OR SPECIAL....OR worth anything more than a simple 'I got paid.'

I mean simply acting like it mighta been acceptable to stiff anyone opens door for the scumbags out there that dont pay... the fight biz is a dirt biz just like the gaming industry so I see tehse stories everyday...and u know what...after i get paid I know better than to bet into the shop again..

Weak numbers = weak payouts...  and weak number usually result from weak management.. so its gonna happen eventually...so shame on me for going back into them.

...my 2 cents..and not a person here can say I have any kind of agenda period...  I dont nut hug...

Great that Shine is going to carry on...and I support them and more mma and hope them unlimited success in the future. But bizness is bizness..

In the end ..ask anyone with money thats hung onto it...its not about the good deals you make but the bad deals you dont make... making the paper is ez...keeping its the hard part..

Problem is we are all use to fighters getting screwed, therefore doing what is right seems better. And sometimes doing the right thing will bankrupt you , most people dont do the right thing.

Shows they do have morals and ethics and that is very hard to find in any industry. Or in any person.

lol.  It does kind of remind me of Chris Rock's bit about people bragging that they take care of their kids and/or they haven't been to jail.

In any case, I felt the need to post it for a couple of reasons.  Despite it being what they are supposed to do, many companies would not have done it.  Moreover, they were getting a lot of bad press in regards to the fighters not being paid.
