Matt Lindland (Pictures) will fight Vitor Belfort (Pictures) at the Oct. 11 Affliction event in Las Vegas, Affliction announced Wednesday at a news conference.

Belfort (17-8) is currently serving a 180-day medical suspension with the California State Athletic Commission following his July 19 knockout win over Terry Martin (Pictures) at Affliction’s debut event in Anaheim. An orthopedic doctor must clear him before he can fight Lindland.

Affliction also announced Wednesday that IFL heavyweight champion Roy Nelson (Pictures) will fight Paul Buentello (Pictures).

Don't get too excited, Junkie reported a short time ago Lindland-Belfort might not happen due to Belfort's injury. Getting the suspension ended early is not the issue, there's concern Belfort might not be fully healed in time.

Nelson Vs. Buentello, that should be interesting. I don't think Nelson can beat Buentello. For some reason this fight interests me, and I don't know why.

Maybe you like to see to see two six pack-less heavyweights throw down? But seriously a decent stand up battle.

Nelson and Buentello.......I'm going to reserve my right to change my opinion about this fight. But, as of right now, this Affliction card isn't pumping me like the last one did.
