MMA Weekly confirms Josh Gross' earlier report that the promotion intends to ignore the court ruled injunction and carry on with the event as planned.

Shine Fights' PR representative Phil Lanides was quoted as saying the following: "Official position at this point is that we're still going forward."

Of course, King's lawyers are saying they will sue them into oblivion.

I feel bad for the fans who paid for this event live
No main event now. They should have had a replacement ready
To go just in case this happened

I read that they are going to try to go ahead with the event but King will just wave the court order in the faces of the PPV providers.

I wish I could prop Shine. If they say f*ck Don King and do the fight anyhow, that would be the ultimate.
