I would say it's quite good news that Affliction was able to salvage at least a peice of their postponed card. Also, the two promotions working together should produce good results for fight fans.

"Country Breakfast" is ****ed.

Shouldn't this be in the Boxing section?

:P

I'd really rather that Roy Nelson was not going to be featured against a legit opponent on CBS. It's one thing to be carrying a bit of extra fat (like Fedor) but it's another to be actually obese. I think it will bring quite a bit of criticism upon MMA from some people.

Atleast Arlovski should light him up.

Maybe that's the point - maybe Arlovski is getting preferred treatment to be Fedor's January opponent...

I actually like this addition to the card - and I very much like Affliction and EliteXC cooperating togethere...

YUHHHHHHH!

Fighting a chump isn't a very good way to get ready for Fedor.

He can't help it. Elite doesn't want a pro-wrestler in their cage.

Which is funny since they have had both Shamrocks in their ring.

if this fight goes beyond the 1st, i'll be disappointed in Andrei
