See, people? We CAN all just get along! The latest example of this is a planned joint announcement later today that Affliction will cease promoting fights but, in exchange, will become an official sponsor of UFC. Such a deal actually was proposed after Affliction 2 in October but fell apart after Todd Beard & Lorenzo Fertitta couldn't make nice. There is a chance that Affliction could be back to being on Zuffa fighters in time for UFC 101 on August 8.

Is this all Barnett's or CSAC fault? Did this all really happen in the last few days since the test or was this being planned before?

I liked Affliction as a fight promotion. But i guess money didn't like Affliction as a fight promotion. Ohwell, all the clothes look like crap anyway, I really couldn't tell you the difference between an Affliction or a One More Round shirt. The Tapout brah's are going to be angry with this.

Well, that happened pretty quick. I wonder where all the Affliction fighters are going to go now. I'm sure the one's the UFC wants they will get and probably all the others will go over to Japan to fight.

I would love to see Sobral back in the UFC but I don't think Dana would have him back. Definitely wanna see Vitor back where he belongs.

So does M-1 still have a stake in Affliction?

What will happen to the rights for the Affliction fights?
Will they sell them to the UFC?

Actually, what Weekly mentioned today was that Showtime was a major factor in the collapse of Trilogy today. Supposedly they wanted a "big name" to replace Barnett in the Fedor fight and apparently it wasn't a Belfort or Rogers.
