Las Vegas, NV (USA) – Zuffa, LLC (“Zuffa”), dba the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (“UFC”), was awarded yet another legal victory today when the Honorable Susan H. Johnson, of the Eighth Judicial District Court for Nevada, granted Zuffa’s Motion for Attorney’s Fees and Costs against former UFC fighter Ken Shamrock.

Las Vegas, NV (USA) – Zuffa, LLC (“Zuffa”), dba the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (“UFC”), was awarded yet another legal victory today when the Honorable Susan H. Johnson, of the Eighth Judicial District Court for Nevada, granted Zuffa’s Motion for Attorney’s Fees and Costs against former UFC fighter Ken Shamrock.
 
Earlier in the year, Shamrock had unsuccessfully brought suit against Zuffa challenging various provisions of his UFC contract during a two day trial before Judge Johnson.  As a result of today’s decision, Shamrock was ordered to pay Zuffa nearly $175,000 in related attorney fees, costs and expenses.
 
Zuffa was once again represented by Las Vegas lawyers Donald J. Campbell and J. Colby Williams whose legal efforts during the trial were characterized by Judge Johnson as “stellar.” When asked to comment on today’s ruling by Judge Johnson, Messrs. Campbell & Williams remarked as follows:
 
“This latest legal victory on behalf of Zuffa demonstrates, once again, that the UFC is fully committed to vigorously enforcing all of its contractual rights.  Judge Johnson has determined Mr. Shamrock’s hard lesson learned in this case will cost him approximately $175,000.”
