While Affliction’s first-ever mixed martial arts card on July 19 does not appear to be in peril, it looks like the event may require a new venue.

On Saturday afternoon, FiveOuncesOfPain.com was informed by a source that a proposed deal between Affliction and HDNet appeared to have fallen through. As a result, Affliction was not able to finalize an agreement to book the American Airlines Arena in Dallas, Texas for its first show.

LOL.

Move it to OHIO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can only wonder how much they will charge for tickets.

I find it interesting ELITE XC has banned fighters from wearing Affliction clothing as well.The world of Mixed Martial Arts in its long running civial war.

Will the madness ever stop???

Iam not suprised by this. Seems that as soon as a new promotion starts up there is alway complications and something happens. Maybe Fedor is bad luck.lol. I hope they get something figured out, and they put on a good card.
