More on the Affliction lineup

Affliction officially announced their intentions to make a gigantic bonfire out of hundred dollar bills on June 19th. The lineup thus far:

PPV Fights:
• Fedor Emelianenko vs. Tim Sylvia
• Josh Barnett vs. Pedro Rizzo
• Renato Sobral vs. Mike Whitehead
• Matt Lindland vs. Fabio Negao
• Aleksander Emelianenko vs. Paul Buentello (yet to be signed)

Non-pay-per-view fights:
• Savant Young vs. Mark Hominick
• Justin Levens vs. Ray Lazama
• J.J. Ambrose vs. Patrick Speight
• Mike Pyle vs. Brett Cooper

Not too much is different on the main card other than a Rothwell vs Arlovski matchup scrapped in favor of a possible Aleks Emelianenko vs Paul Buentello bout. That one should be interesting, but there’s not much of a question in my mind who’s going to win it. Past that you’ve also got your undercard, which is pretty damn decent on it’s own. My favorite part is how Mike Pyle is all the way down there at the bottom. If only there was a female match above him to boot, that’d make things even better. But I’ll take what I can get.

  • Hattori Hanzo Gracie

    good card overall but I bet they’re overpaying for most of the mainevent.

  • Fightlinker Jackal

    They won’t cross the 50,000 buys. So is it a cage or a ring?

  • clint notestine

    I hear its gonna be in a ring.

  • John Chandler

    I believe it will be a ring.

  • Hattori Hanzo Gracie

    Yamma PIT????
    Picture this….

    Tim Sylvia throws a big right hand, Fedor ducks under and bears hugs him from behind. Pushes him up the lip and Suplexs Tim across the cage. Fedor wins by total destruction

  • Autoguy

    I predict TIm knocks out Fedor out in the first round. Then Dana has a nice bonus waiting for Tim when he comes back.

  • Fightlinker Jackal

    This one is really hard to predict… arm bar… maybe?

  • JackalAss

    Fedor by Gogo.

    He’ll swim, do the drowning, maybe the twist. The dancing will bewilder Sylvia, allowing Fedor to lock in the armbar.

    Then, he’s gonna break the titanium rod in Timm-ay’s arm. Woohoo!

  • smoogleton

    Arlovski vs. Rothwell wasn’t scrapped. I don’t know where you’re getting that from.

  • el feo

    I will be attending, possibly wearing Affliction gear on my way to becoming the dbag I always knew I could be.
