Well they are using the old unified rules and not the new set the ABC came up with. Which if they did Fedor would have to put on weight to make HW. So looks like they are just using the same rules the UFC does.

When I began to post this I initially got the impression that they would be using the new ones. I guess not. How's that for a slap in the face McCarthy?

hopefully, because a fight without elbows on the ground is not worth doing

The title of the event should be Affliction "Leftovers".

funny but totally un true, you should relook at the card, I think almost everyone of the HWs could beat most of the UFC HWs and I am very loyal to the UFC but the UFC HW division is very weak as of right now.

are you sure!? hopefully, it seems like only the UFC and the EliteXC are have elbows on the ground, Dream, Strikeforce and a lot of the smaller leagues do not allow them including the state of Illinois

Yeah Affliction is trying to shine in the HW department. Hope they can back up their league with more signed LHW's and such. Right now, they look to be 90% HW.

sounds like a good idea on their part, isn't everyone always saying that HW are the biggest draw in combat sports?

Yeah I definitely agree. Watching HW's bang always sounds good to me. I do like watching LW's, but the power of HW's is always compelling

But I think it would be more fitting to call it: Affliction "UFC Haters Club"
