I wonder how they will compare to Pride when they had their event there. I think they will do better. Can't wait until this happens.

Dana's turf...interesting.

Look for an announcement of another UFC event to combat Affliction in the next few days, I bet.

Paul Buentello vs Tim Sylvia should happen at this event.

Since AA vs Fedor is happening, Barnett vs Sylvia would be a good choice, or if they can get Sergei, Sergei vs Barnett would be a god match up too.

I would bet the same. I really liked the first affliction show, and i agree it was a success, but that article was shilling. They left out the paid # for affliction, and didn't mention the PPV disparity between the UFC and affliction. I guess I just expect more journalistic integrity & impartiality. However, something that is really huge for affliction IMO, and points to them being a legitimate threat to challenging the uFC ,is that Affliction did over 100,000 ppv's according to their VP. If this is true, they are the first non- UFC mma company to do so. Add a possible matchup between a more IMO marketable AA against Fedor , and this after some new people are exposed to Fedors skills after the 1rst PPV, and Affliction really looks to be on the rise and quickly. The fatc that they already scheduled the 2nd event right away is a really good sign to me too.

15 guys came to my house to watch the Affliction show. I know 15 more guys that WISH they would have come to my house for that show. Which means? I know a lot more guys that will buy that PPV next time. Honestly, regardless of personal feelings, how many of you who didn't see it, wished you could have seen it? raise your hand. I'm guessing there are a lot of dudes out there that were like...shoot, I should have watched it. Truth, you should have. It was dope. I watched the fight night on UFC too and it was like watching a JV game compared to AA, Barnett, and Fedo. That's not to mention Vitor blowing out Martin, and Nog blowing up his guy. Those were good but the top three bouts....amazing.
I was out of my seat for all three.
