Default I am just coming from a "MMA" bar and the place

was dead. When Silva fought Hendo I couldn't even stand up in the bar and now we had two good to great fight cards in one night and while there were people, nobody was really interested in the fights before the main events and even the main events didn't cause much stir.

Affliction while putting an amazing MMA card is 20 times behind UFC in terms of production. Production is 50% at least of the show and just great matches won't do it. They have to fix it. I hope they do.

I actually thought the production for Affliction was excellent.

The commentating was good, Frank Trigg was even bearable! There was a very quick turn around between fights, it never lagged. Didn't really care for Megadeath but it wasn't too bad. The post fight interviews were conducted well.

The only thing that was bad imo was that the ring ropes were too slack, but otherwise, I much prefered this to the shows the UFC puts on.

To each his own I guess.

I bought the affliction event on pay per view and i must say i was expecting much more out of my 40$. They had a great card but only 2 fights were good in my opinion, Arlovski VS Big ben and Fedor VS Silvya. The other fights were just average.

And well, on the production side it must agree that it wasnt really good. In the beginning there was a period where there was no audio from the commentators. You could hear the crowd, but not the commentators. Plus they had their levels messed up, commentors were extremely loud, but the crowd/ring announcers were barely audible.


If you are going to ask me 40$ to watch people fight on tv you need to get your **** together.
