Shine Fights Announces Pairings for Friday's Lightweight Tournament
(mmafighting.com)
It's been an interesting – and mostly rough – road leading to Shine Fights' lightweight tournament. But two days before the event, the promotion made official its grand prix pairings. As Shine Fights COO Jason Chambers announced on Twitter in the days leading up to the tournament, first-round tournament matches between Drew Fickett and Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennett, Rich Crunkilton and Carlo Prater and James Warfield and Kyle Baker were confirmed by the promotion Wednesday night. Also made official was the fourth bout, Shannon Gugerty vs. Dennis Bermudez.

David Heath Filing Lawsuit Against Shine Fights
(mmaweekly.com)
Another day, another potential major issue for Shine Fights. One of the fighters scheduled for the last-minute-scratch 5/15 event, David "Not Gangrel" Heath, says he will sue the promotion next week because he claims he has not been paid his contracted participation in the event. He was scheduled to face Murilo Rua. When asked if he had received payment from Shine Fights, Heath answered by text message saying, "Nope. Gonna file a small claims suit when I get back from MFC this weekend." Heath is currently in Canada for the Maximum Fighting Championship show taking place this Friday, and will return home to Oklahoma next week where he plans to file the suit.

Aurelio Out Of Shine Fights Tournament, Questionable For DREAM
(mmajunkie.com)
PRIDE and UFC veteran Marcus Aurelio today said that an elbow injury he sustained two weeks ago will keep him from fighting in Shine Fights' single-night eight-man tournament on Friday in Newkirk, Okla. And while he's keeping his fingers crossed that he'll be able to meet an obligation to fight Shinya Aoki at DREAM.16 on Sept. 25, it all depends on whether his injury subsides enough to fight. Many observers have questioned the timing of Aurelio's withdrawal, which came 24 hours after Shine Fights COO Jason Chambers told MMAWeekly.com that the Brazilian did not have permission to fight Aoki in DREAM and wasn't likely to get the green light unless he fought in Friday's event. As for Friday, Shannon Gugerty is the replacement.

DirecTV Says Yes to Shine Fights, No to Shark Fights
(mmafighting.com)
We have a weird weekend in mixed martial arts ahead of us, with two different pay-per-view shows even as the UFC is sitting the weekend out. But if you're a DirecTV subscriber, you have only one fight card available to you: DirecTV is offering Friday night's Shine Fights event, but not Saturday night's Shark Fights show. DirecTV has decided not to give its customers the chance to purchase the Shark Fights card, which is headlined by Keith Jardine vs. Trevor Prangley. Unsurprisingly, Shark Fights is disappointed.

Drew McFedries, Marcus Hicks Off Shark Fights 13
(mmajunkie.com)
All mixed martial arts promotions are forced to deal with the reality of injuries, and the upstart Shark Fights organization is no exception. While the Texas-based promotion will host its first-ever pay-per-view event with next week's Shark Fights 13 card, the organization will need to secure a pair of late replacements. Both Drew McFedries and Marcus Hicks are now off for as-yet-unknown reasons. McFedries was to have faced Joey Villasenor, Hicks was to have faced Karen Darabedyan. Daniel Straus has verbally agreed to be a replacement for Hicks, no replacement yet for McFedries. UPDATE: Danilo Villefort is the replacement for McFedries.

Report: Virginia KOs Shine Fights, 9/10 Event Going To Oklahoma
(mmamania.com)
Shine Fights is taking another one on the chin this week, this time from the Virginia Athletic Commission, who apparently wasn't on board with the promotion's decision to let the fans do their matchmaking for next weekend's lightweight grand prix pay-per-view. The report also states that Shine will stick to the original date of Sept. 10 but has been forced to abandon its plans for a tournament at the George Mason University campus in Fairfax after being denied a license and will instead head to Oklahoma to a venue yet to be determined. This is the promotion's second major setback in 2010. Shine saw the cancellation of its "Worlds Collide: Mayorga vs. Thomas" pay-per-view event back on May 15, after the courts awarded Don King Productions a last-minute injunction barring Ricardo Mayorga's participation in the main event.
