A heavyweight bout between M-1 fighters Jessie Gibbs (7-2) and Rob Broughton (10-4-1) has been added to the "Affliction: Trilogy" preliminary card.

M-1 Global officials today announced the bout.

"Affliction: Trilogy" takes place Aug. 1 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. The main card, featuring a headliner of Fedor Emelianenko vs. Josh Barnett, airs on pay-per-view, and the night's preliminary card airs on HDNet.

Gibbs, a member of Team Benelux in M-1 Challenge, is 5-2 in M-1 events. He enters the Affliction show with six wins (five via stoppage) in his past seven fights. Gibbs most recently competed in May when he defeated MMA newcomer Nikola Dipchkov with a 97-second submission due to strikes. Gibbs' only two career losses have come to notables Aleksander Emelianenko and Alexey Oleinik.
