With the Shine Lightweight Grand Prix tournament at the Patriot centered canceled, there's a void for those who wanted to see live action. Lets face the facts, most fans don't care about a commission or the politics of MMA. Shine and the Virginia Athletic Commission are pointing fingers at each other, but at the end of the days its the fighters and fans who are cheated. One such fighter Elder Ramos trained several weeks in anticipation of fighting on the Shine Lightweight Grand Prix Card. When the promoter failed to get a license, and moved the event to Oklahoma fighters such as Elder are left in the cold. To Date the UWC has been the only professional MMA promotion to stand and deliver quality fights to the D.C. Metropolitan area. Hail the day when D.C. Metro area fans stand-up and support the UWC more and allow them to bring quality shows every month, or every other month.
