Adding to the speculation of Affliction's forthcoming "major announcement," it now appears WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko will be featured on the re-scheduled "Affliction: Day of Reckoning."

NBCSports.com reported the addition of Emelianenko to a new Jan. 17, 2009, date after speaking with Affliction Chief Operating Officer Michael Cohen.

Messages MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) left with Cohen and Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio were not immediately returned.

Although Cohen told NBCSports.com that Emelianenko's services are secured, his potential opponent was not yet named.

"It is to be determined," Cohen was quoted as saying. "We are considering changing the combatants. We have not finalized that at this time. That is as a result of the issues to be revealed at the announcement."

I have a sick feeling that we are getting ready for Fedor vs. Tito.... just a wild guess, but all these things are happening at once.

Fedor vs Arlovski should be back on then. It should be a good standup war until it hits the mat where Fedor's Sambo is about 12 levels above "the pitbulls".

Josh probably has a better chance to beat Fedor because of his granite chin and wrestling. He has the potential to control Fedor from the top and win a decision, whereas I don't think Arlovski has a way to win outside of a lucky punch.

I could see that being a stipulation in Tito's record breaking contract...he must first be demolished by Fedor, I'd watch that

I'd buy that for a dollar!

It has to be Arlovski. I don't think Affliction would put Tito in there against Fedor. I would watch the fight. What would the betting lines on a fight like that be?

I wonder if this is the announcement that is supposed to change the face of MMA? If so, there better be a really interesting opponent for him.

Babalu has just recently gotten injured. He's out. Interesting fight though....those two guys hate each other.

tito bvs fedor i will like to see that

Affliction better hope then that Fedor fights a can on New Year's Eve, (which he probably will...), and doesn't get injured with this show less than 3 weeks after Fedor's next fight.
