The field of 22 fighters set to compete on the Affliction: “Banned” card will all tip the scales for the official weigh-in at the Honda Center (2695 E. Katella Ave.) in Anaheim, Calif., on Friday, July 18.

The “mega” event is FREE to attend and open to the public. Doors will open a 2 p.m. local time and the first fighter will drop his drawers around 3 p.m. PT. It will not air live online or on television.

“Banned” will take place the following day on Saturday, July 19, in the same location, airing on FOX Sports Net for FREE at 8 p.m. ET and then transitioning to pay-per-view (PPV) around 9 p.m. ET. MMAmania.com will provide up-to-the-minute coverage of the action throughout the afternoon and evening.

It’s the first-ever event for the apparel company-turned mixed martial arts promotion … and it’s a doozy. In the main event of the evening, former champions Fedor Emelianenko against Tim Sylvia will tangle for the right to claim the inaugural WAMMA heavyweight title strap.

Other heavyweights in action include Josh Barnett, Pedro Rizzo, Andrei Arlovski, Ben Rothwell, Alexander Emelianenko, Paul Buentello and others.
