my guess is that this is the beginning of the end for affliction. if that is the case its really too bad because although they didnt have a huge roster of guys there, there was some major talent, and there were a lot of extremely intriguing matchups they could have made. im hoping for the best at this point, but i expect the worst.

Not mentioned in the first post but in the article is that they're moving it to January in Anaheim. It'll have to be early or mid-January to avoid football & UFC conflicts.

Fewer events in a year = less money lost in a year.

I'd read a few articles that Affliction was having a really difficult time getting radio shows in Vegas to air their advertisments. Basically it's the UFC's backyard and they're bullying advertisers, with the threat that they'll miss out on big deals with the UFC if they advertise for Affliction.

In light of that it was inevitable that Affliction would have to back out and change venues.

Yeah, I could see them having a hard time advertising in the UFC's backyard. I could see some blackballing from the media. Probably better off to have it somewhere else. But, to move it back that far. I'm not sure about that.

I'm just wondering how Kimbo is 9-0? What would you call the Gannon fight?

LMAO

The Gannon fight? A non-sanctioned street fight.

However...the avatar is a joke. I lost an avatar bet on the Chuck/Rashad fight and gsquat's avatar of choice what I have to sport around until the end of the month.
