FINAL Update (7:50pm EDT): The entire card has been canceled. They planned to go ahead with a Ninja Rua-David Heath main event, but apparently the commission just called off the show. That's horrible for all the fighters who worked and spent money in camp to get here, and now don't even get their payday. All in all, I do understand where King is coming from, but getting this into court on the Saturday of the show seems pretty bizarre. And the fact of the matter is, King and Mayorga don't see eye-to-eye and there's zero business future for them together, perhaps especially now. All this did was screw over a bunch of people when it really wouldn't have hurt King in any way. This is typical slime. Update (2:02pm EDT): Josh Gross of SI has another tweet that says that Shine is planning to ignore the injunction and go ahead with the fight. This would put them in contempt, and DKP would surely sue them to smithereens at that point. This may well just be a way for Shine to make it seem like they're still going to put on the fight, and then "last minute" once you've already spent your PPV money, they'll "cancel," and blame Big Bad Don. Original: The Ricardo Mayorga-Din Thomas MMA fight for the Shine Fights promotion is off. Josh Gross of SI tweeted that a Broward County judge ruled in favor of Don King in his attempt to stop the fight from happening. This leaves the Shine PPV gutted with no real attraction. The fight was scheduled to take place tonight. Only in America! HT: Bloody Elbow

More details on Don King's filed injunction against Mayorga, Shine Fights: Don King Productions states that Mayorga’s proposed MMA bout includes the discipline of boxing, of which it believes it has the exclusive rights to promote the fighter. In addition to Mayorga’s alleged breach of contract, DKP’s motion also claims Shine Fight Promotions conducted in "tortuous conduct" to acquire Mayorga’s services and that the boxer’s participation in Saturday’s bout could damage Mayorga’s body and his reputation. The motion also argues that if Mayorga loses to or is injured by Thomas, it will "substantially impair" the boxing organization’s ability to promote Mayorga moving forward. DKP states that it has already secured Mayorga’s next boxing assignment against current WBA World Middleweight Champion Felix Sturm in August or September 2010. -- Full write-up at Sherdog.com

Don King Productions issues cease and desist against Shine Fight Promotions: "Don King Productions has a valid promotional contract granting the right of exclusive representation of Ricardo Mayorga and has advised Shine Fight Promotions accordingly." "Shine Fight Promotions’ conduct constitutes tortious interference with Don King Productions’ agreement with Ricardo Mayorga, and Don King Productions has requested they immediately cease and desist promoting Ricardo Mayorga at one of their events to avoid the need for legal action in this matter."

Don King Talks MMA with USA Today: How serious is your desire to be involved with MMA? I'm the people's promoter. Whatever the people want, I'm going to promote. Whatever the public wants, that's what I want to give them. I want to give it to them with candor so they can quantify, qualify and identify with whoever the athlete is. Your rival Bob Arum has made condescending remarks about MMA, referring to their fan base as too unrefined. Your thoughts? They are Americans. They are people. Who am I to say that something is wrong with them when I'm always crying about, "Why you're treating me this way?" They bring competition. They bring people. Let's enrich it and monetize it. Let's bring the people something. When you bring a new store to town, you can choose between the prices and the fabrics. When I bring my guys in we'll be getting prepared to take on Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta in their league vs. our league. The same thing I want to do with the sport of boxing I want to do with MMA. Make it competitive, man. Make it a comparison. Even though they've put on good fights, let's see what they do with someone totally independent. So does this mean you're adding an MMA arm to Don King Productions? Well, I can't do this all by myself. I'm 78 but I'm not slowing down. I've got all the time in the world to rest when I get to heaven.
