Round 1: Zuffa

New, comments

A Nevada court granted Zuffa's motion for a preliminary injunction against Randy Couture yesterday:

Nevada District Court Judge Jennifer Togliatti granted a motion for a preliminary injunction preventing Couture "from engaging in any promotion or production of events or programming related to unarmed combat during the February 29, 2008 (International Fight League) event" in Las Vegas, according to the court's minutes of the hearing. The finding also precludes the use of the "name `Randy Couture' and likeness on the IFL website, print materials, banners, and like materials to promote" the event.

This is only a preliminary injunction, and it is not necessarily a sign of things to come.  However, a loss here probably would have signalled that Judge Tagliotti is unsympathetic to Zuffa's claims of harm.
