Shine Fights Plans Summer Return, Will Compensate Fighters

Shine Fights CEO Devin Price talks to MMAWeekly.com about the way things turned out this past weekend for his promotion:

“The judge granted the injunction for Don King, and so the Ricardo Mayorga fight was off. However, we were ready to move forward with our show because we felt and we still feel like we have a great card. So we were ready to go put it on and fans were actually in the building from my understanding, and the commissioner ended up calling the fights for reasons I'm not entirely sure of … I didn't know [the athletic commission] could cancel the show … I just want to get an understanding from their side of things why they decided to call the event … The fighters will all be taken care of financially for this fight. This is not going to be a situation where we're going to say 'oh the fight's canceled, nobody's getting paid.' People will be paid, and we're going to look to put on a fight very soon. We're probably looking at June/July/August.”
