SUN Announces New MMA Event “Battle of the Shield” Featuring Police Officers vs. Fire Fighters

DALLAS, TX–(July 1, 2008) – SUN Sports & Entertainment, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SUNR) announced today a new Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Event titled “Battle of the Shield” ( featuring Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, (DFW) Police Officers vs. (DFW) Fire Fighters to benefit the 501-C3 Charity, “Fallen Heroes Family Support Fund.”

The MMA Charity Event will feature active duty members of Police and Fire Departments who will be fighting as amateurs in the inaugural “Battle of the Shield.” Police Officers and Fire Fighters have met before in Boxing and Hockey, but this is the first time they will collide in Mixed Martial Arts, “the fastest-growing sport in the world.” Craig Ferguson, a Murphy, Texas Fire Fighter and Charity representative, stated, “We’ve had so much interest from department personnel in doing an MMA event and I’m very excited to see it come together, especially for raising money for such a great cause.”

“Battle of the Shield” is scheduled to take place at the NOKIA Theatre ( in Grand Prairie, Texas on Saturday, October 11, 2008, and will feature over 10 amateur MMA bouts. Combatants will train in area MMA gyms and through seminars. Fighters will compete by skill level, weight, age and height to make for the most competitive matchups.

Laura Carman, Director of “Fallen Heroes Family Support Fund,” said, “This is a fund that was created in 2005 to support the families of Texas Fire Fighters who have been killed or injured in the line of duty. We support grief counseling, college scholarships and immediate bill paying for the families. If you have ever been helped by a Fire Fighter or Paramedic, or know someone who has, take a minute and think back to the courageous work they did. Now that the charity has expanded to include Dallas/Ft. Worth Area Police Departments, this is the perfect event to bring awareness to the cause and really help some families in need. I can’t thank the Police Officers and Fire Fighters enough for their dedication, and for participating in Battle of the Shield.”

Art of War To Syndication

June 17, 2008

Sun Sports & Entertainment announced today an agreement with American Television Distribution ( to license a four show series of “ART OF WAR” Events (2-hour specials) into 40 of the top syndicated TV markets.

American Television Distribution, which currently licenses CHEATERS UNCENSORED, STAG and BILLIONAIRES CAR CLUB worldwide, will license the ART OF WAR name brand to local affiliates of FOX, ABC, NBC, CBS, MY TV,The CW, etc. across the United States scheduled for September 2008.

“ART OF WAR” features many popular MMA stars including: Pedro Rizzo, Jeff Monson, David Loiseau, Justin Eilers, Jeremy Horn and Alex Andrade. Those within the company feel the deal will raise the company’s profile as it looks to possibly relaunch its’ brand:

“Syndication will introduce the ART OF WAR brand to a broad audience across the country,” said Clyde Gentry III, Chief Operating Officer of SUN. “With the MMA space continuing to grow, it will give us an opportunity to increase our fan base.”

A deal like this gives truth to the old maxim that content is king. With the wealth of television and online avenues of distribution, there is always a need for product to move through those pipelines. On a similar note, however the IFL ends up, look to see their back catalog of fights for quite a while as someone will look to purchase the library and exploit it if the company goes under.
