Noted Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner and Xtreme Couture trainer Jay White (2-5) and reigning IFL heavyweight champion Roy Nelson (12-3) will likely meet at "Affliction: Day of Reckoning" in October.

Additionally, "Affliction: Banned" winner Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (14-3) and reigning IFL light heavyweight champion Vladimir Matyushenko (21-3) are expected to rematch at the upcoming show.

I think Vlad will take it but I'm not excited about White vs Nelson. Roy Nelson was good but I never liked watching him fight. I do think he will lose to White.

I can't believe they passed up on Horodecki. He was an unstoppable force in the IFL and a very young talent which they could have developed into a massive machine within the UFC.

I can't say for certain that they did.....maybe contract agreements, I don't know, but I would say we would have heard something about them trying to lock him up.
