 http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/Virginia-Commission-Shine-Didnt-Provide-Payroll-Bond-Other-Docs-for-Licensure-26765

The Virginia Professional Boxing and Wrestling Program’s decision to deny Shine Fights a promoter’s license last Friday was based on the promotion’s inability to provide mandatory documents, including evidence of a surety bond to cover fighters’ purses, said Mary Broz-Vaughan, director of communications for the Dept. of Professional and Occupational Regulation.

Shine was either late or unable to provide complete medical records and test results, as well as fighters’ professional records, said Broz-Vaughan.

 Another lie from Shine, what a fucking shock.

Related to not being able to guarantee fighter pay, just stunning.
 
Anyone that shows up in Oklahoma is a certifiable idiot at this point.

Shine Fights COO Jason Chambers did not initially return calls or texts for comment.

 Easiest guy in the world to get ahold of, just ask him...if you can get ahold of him that is.

But... but... but...


Jason Chambers - 
Phildo449er - Are you doing anything to ensure that the fighters on this card will be paid? the commission canceled your last card because it didn't have the money for purses, and now there is no commission for this card.


Yes- I have sure that we have funds paced in an escrow account 60 days ago.

 I thought Jason said 3 months ago that all fighters were going to be taken care of too.

This is all a big lie!!!!


It was the Fan Voting they didn't like. It has nothing to do with the money.





LOL.

this is so bad, that from here on, when a shady promotion pops up, we'll say 'they shined the event'

Did they not know the phone calls to the commission were going to happen today?

Seriously.

When the "Fan Vote" bullshit was floated out there to take the medias tempature, they had to know everyone was going to call the commission today.




I guess they now need to formulate the story on how THIS is someone elses fault.

We have confirmed this as well:
http://www.mmaspot.net/index.php/redblack/comments/39100907_virginia_commission_states_shine_was_unprepared_purses_not_in_plac/

They would like to suggest, “Oh Virginia pulled the plug because of what happened in North Carolina,” and that's just not the case. Allegations in another jurisdiction are not grounds for denial of a license. The fact is, if they had not given us an Assurity Bond, and the other things that were missing, but that was really the big piece. But to not have had it by last Thursday is not sufficient time for us to put on a safe match.

Playing devil's advocate here again:

Let's say Schrödinger's cat is in a box in Virgina. Attached to the inside of the box is a geiger counter, triggered by random atom decay. In the event of decay, a carrier pigeon is released from the top of the box carrying a surety bond to the Virginia Professional Boxing and Wrestling Program.

Now change the model a bit and assume that the cat is not a cat, but a pitbull. A blind pitbull. Might we be stuck in one merely supposed state in a multiverse of supposed upstart MMA companies? Perhaps our perception is the problem, and in a universe not far from here, jjj2121 us actually the COO of Shine, a jams and jellies company that is actually quite thriving.

I know. I blew your mind. Just another reminder that it is absurd to rush to judgment in an indeterminate universe.


"But Jupes, you're a determinist," you say.


"And what's more, you are not fond of cats," you continue.




Ah, then you've caught me, haven't you. And the jester loses his tongue. And all the world's a stage. And the sun rises and sets, and Dana White wins.

this is the most embarrassing excuse for a promotion I've ever seen. Jesus christ these idiots make EliteXC look good. At least they could put on a fucking event and pay a bond.
