It is now official, “Mayorga’s out,” as Shine Fight Broadcaster Karyn Bryant has just announced on her official twitter.
“Mayorga’s out,” Bryant stated. “‘Ninja’ Rua vs. David Heath is new headliner at Shine tonight. Still lots of good fights going down!”
This resulting from some last minute legal steps taken by the capitalist boxing promoter Don King. King’s argument was that Mayorga’s contract does not allow him to ‘box’ for any other organizations. Yes, MMA is not boxing, but Judge Marc Gold of Broward County, Flor. thought differently.
The continued battle of MMA vs Boxing will have to wait until boxer James Toney (0-0 MMA) steps into the octagon against Randy Couture (18-10 MMA, 15-7 UFC) at UFC 118 on Aug. 28
