Fedor Emelianenko vs. Andrei Arlovski On January Affliction Show

MMARated.com has learned that WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko will face Andrei Arlovski at the upcoming Affliction show tentatively scheduled for January 24th in Anaheim, Calif.

Affliction Entertainment VP Tom Atencio confirmed the news with us earlier today.

Atencio also said that the promotion will officially announce the date, location and main fights on the card sometime next week and that it will be an MMA-only card but still co-promoted with Golden Boy Promotions.

"We sat down with them and couldn't come up with a main event boxing match that everyone wanted," Atenco said.

Originally, it was announced that the January show would be a mixed boxing/MMA event.

Affliction's second pay-per-view show entitled "Day of Reckoning" was supposed to occur tomorrow but was cancelled last month after reported poor ticket sales at the Thomas & Center in Las Vegas. Atencio did mention that January's show will also be called "Day of Reckoning" and will be "more stacked" than its original offering.

Last week, Arlovski defeated Roy Nelson at EliteXC: Stand Heat while Emelianenko last fought in July on the first-ever Affliction show making quick work of former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia.




Lets hope AA lasts longer than Sylvia...

Well my hopes are up. As long as AA lands some good shots and maybe cuts him before he's finished, I'll be satisfied. I love watching Fedor dominate.

Andrei most likely gets Subbed in the 1st Round with a Kimura

I don't think so Fedor's perfected Side Control i.e. Hunt and Randleman

I really wanna see arlovski KTFO fedor, but i just cant imagine fedor losing. its a diffcult concept to grasp. I think if AA can keep the fight standing he MIGHT be able to get a KO or more likley a SD. My final decision Is fedor by sub.
Sry AA

Why would you want to see Fedor get Knocked out, he's never Talked Smack or done anything wrong is his Fighting Career and he's been Honorable and AA would get tagged of the Feet because Fedor is a better all around Stand Up Fighter. I doubt AA could have went 3 Rounds with the old Cro Cop without getting Knocked out

I want AA to win. and I want him to win with an awesome KO (not because he's fightin fedor but because I love AA.)
But I think fedor will win by 1st round sub

Because AA is a beast and a KO over fedor would be amazing for his career. And idk, cro cop and AA are great strikers but i just cant picture AA gettin Kicked in the dome

I'm glad that it isn't going to be an mma/boxing co-promotion event. Thank God!! Boxing would've took away from the number of mma fights we see on ppv. Boxing events usually take a long time, and although I like boxing, I prefer mma. I love Ozzy, have seen both him and Black Sabbath perform several times, but I could care less that he's going to perform. To me, that just takes times from the ppv when they could be showing a fight, though in between fights I guess it doesn't take much time. That is if Ozzy's still going to perform there.

I just can't picture Fedor losing, not to AA anyway. The only way AA would have a chance is to KO Fedor, which I definately don't see happening. I got Fedor by GnP TKO/ref stoppage. I'm glad this is happening though. I've wanted to see these 2 SAMBO guys fight for a long time.

Glad to see Fedor get another big fight. I could see Andrei winning. I really don't think he will since Fedor's stand up is so good he's getting the biggest words of endorsment I've ever heard from Hoost. I love Fedor for his ability and the fact that he is the most humble guy in the entire world. I don't ever want to see him lose because people will talk shit(Dana) and Fedor won't say anything back.
