It would be an EliteXC type of shenanigans, good for a scandal, but bad for the sport.

Did you ever hear of the Rumble in the Jungle? I don't think he would good for MMA though he's hated by a lot of people (but then again so is Dana).

He prays on people that are good at combat sports but are terrible at the business side of it, Hes still at it in boxing somehow, and im actually surprised he hasn't tried to cross over atleast a little, itd be terrible for the sport, hes terrible human being, I mean look what he did to Tyson, he was fucked up enough as it was and king took advantage people like him need to be locked up, all he Is a professional scam artist, And the rumble in the jungle wasn't kings original idea. but since he was the promoter he took the credit for how big it was even though the fighters sold the tickets. when an individual thinks he is bigger than the sport he is involved in, that promoter needs to go, but like cancer, don king is bitch to get rid of.

If it puts butts in seats, beyond what Zuffa can do, then it's worth it. He's a shady dude, though.

Depends on how you mean "give to the sport", are we talking about in the form of lawsuit settlements?

Already happened and the promotion was super classy.

Also look up the Shine Fights/Ricardo Mayorga vs Din Thomas fiasco.
