Default DON KING sings deal with I.C.C!!!!

This is being reported on www.mmaweekly.com :

In a very surprising turn of events, the ICC announced on their website they have a new partner. And it looks as though it could change the way that MMA is viewed and presented in promoting the business in the United States. The ICC has announced a partnership with Don King Productions. Here's the official press release from the website.

"International Cage Combat is proud to announce our new partnership with Don King productions.

"We are very excited to be bringing Mr. Kings 40 plus years of promotional skills to the world of Mixed Martial Arts. From the Rumble in the Jungle to the Rise of Iron Mike King has been the driving force behind the biggest shows, the largest PPV and ever major headline in the boxing world. We feel that this partnership will finally propel Mixed Martial Arts into the mainstream and give the sport the kick it needs to make it to the next level.

"Our next card will be in Las Vegas in October. We are looking for first rate, exciting fighters to step up and be part of this thrilling new venture.

"This will just be the first of many cards to come and we will be looking for fighters on a weekly basis soon enough. We will be holding a series of tournaments to determine our champions in all weight classes. Are you Ready?"

This is all true. If Don King doesnt **** with our sport, ICC will probably be bigger than UFC. Plus he can get boxers he manages to jump in and boost PPV ratings......
