Shark Fights Drops Dave Herman
Heavyweight Dave Herman was supposed to appear on the undercard event of Shark Fights 13. But due to his pending litigation against rival promotion Bellator Fighting Championships, he was taken out of the event. Will this a forever sad story for Herman?
Due to his pending litigation against Bellator Fighting Championships, Dave Herman was scratched off from the September 11 event of Shark Fights 13. Herman sued Bellator for allegedly breaching a six-fight 30-month contract he signed last October 28, 2008. He is also claiming a torturous interference for a numerous fight assignments on the part of the promotion.
Meanwhile, Bellator is also counter-suing the fighter for the same reason. They recently added Shark Fights as a third-party for convicted intervention in what they believe is an exclusive contract. According to Patrick English, Bellator’s attorney, Shark Fights will be removed from the counter-suit as long as they will not enlist Herman for their September 11 event. It is an agreement that both promotions found consensus with, upon discussion that took place over the last two weeks.
Brent Medley, president of Shark Fights, believes that his recent discussion with Bellator CEO, Bjorn Rebney, expedite another dialogue between Herman and the promotion. For the time being, representatives of the sidelined fighter continued to talk about his disputed contract with Bellator, but the two sides had yet to come with an agreement.
