Less than a week away from Affliction's debut show "Banned," Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio is unfazed by UFC president Dana White's recent verbal outburst.

In fact, he's committed to Affliction and UFC at some point working together to create unified champions in all the sport's weight classes.

Does he know Dana?? I mean I don't and even I don't think Dana is going to "unifying" titles ever again. If anything some of the guys fighting for Affliction may be eventually signed to the UFC but Dana is pretty damn exclusive with his fighters ever since the Chuck Page fight. (first one)

i strongly believe that atencio was high when he made these comments. no man in their normal state of mind would think that dana white would do co-promotions.

Did any of you actually read what he said or are you just commenting based on the headline? Based on what Atencio said it doesn't seem at all like he thinks they are going to work together with the UFC in the near future or anything. He's basically only saying that the best thing for the sport would be that everyone worked together and we had undisputed champions. Which I would think is something most people could agree with.

I think this is smart... it makes him look like the better person and will make Dana look petty down the road...
