In the court battle over whether boxer Ricardo Mayorga is contractually free to pursue his MMA debut against former UFC fighter Din Thomas at this Saturday's Shine Fights event in North Carolina, a lot may depend on what the definition of the word "bout" is.

Last week, Don King Productions filed a motion in a Florida court for preliminary injunctive relief to stop Mayorga's participation in the Shine Fights 3 pay-per-view event, alleging that Mayorga is violating his exclusive promotional contract with DKP by engaging in the MMA bout.

Oh man, here we go. I wonder if they will expedite the junction. Somehow I have a feel they will drag it out and Thomas will either be left off the card or they will find a last second replacement.

I don't rally care at all what happens with Mayorga. I'm just glad that Don King is like 80 years old, so there isn't enough time for him to have any negative impact on MMA with his slimeball business practices the way he did with boxing over the decades he was involved with the sport.

Are we allowed to bash Don King? I really detest him. Besides this fight needs to happen because I'm wagering on it.;
