Fedor Undertrained For AA Fight
"He's obviously got unbelievable potential, but he had some distractions getting ready for this fight. The movie. The commercials. If Fedor wants to keep winning, and winning well, he needs to train professionally. Right now he won with his old tricks. "The fact that Fedor won, don't get me wrong, I'm very happy about. But he won this fight because of the training before this fight. The experience he had before this fight. The trainers did everything we could to get him ready. But for title fights, we can't train the way we trained for this one."

Varner Wins Split, To Retain Title
Through four rounds, WEC lightweight champion Jamie Varner and No. 1 contender Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone went to war, just like everyone in attendance in San Diego and everyone watching at home expected out of the two 155-pound warriors. Unfortunately, it was an accidental knee strike in the fifth round that brought about the end of the fight. Varner kept his title via split decision, and both competitors promised another go round if the WEC would make it happen.

Fedor Emelianenko: Fight was even until I knocked Arlovski out
For a brief moment during Saturday's "Affliction: Day of Reckoning" main event in Anaheim, Calif., Fedor Emelianenko (29-1) looked almost human. Apparently frustrated by the effective striking, long reach and rapid speed of challenger Andrei Arlovski (14-6), Emelianenko looked wounded in the corner, and "The Pitbull" smelled blood. Then suddenly, and with little warning, a crushing right hand flattened Arlovski and immediately returned Emelianenko's mystique. During the post-event press conference, the Russian champion said that despite appearances, he was firmly in control throughout the 194 seconds he needed to destroy the world's second-best heavyweight.

“Wow! That’s all I got to say. Vitor at 185 pounds. I don’t know. I see him beating the, uh, what was it, Anderson Silva. I see him picking him apart because you have two great boxers, and, man, that was amazing. That was the old Vitor Belfort that we all want to see. Him at 131 years old. He’s back for vengeance.”

Larry Merchant claims Affliction paid Oscar De La Hoya $5 million …
… to attend and help promote “Day of Reckoning” — a venture that his Golden Boy Promotions backed — rather than sit ringside at a big boxing match that aired on HBO that same night. Here’s the Merchant rant via MMA Insider Blog: “A celebrity who is here in bronze only [referring to a bronze statue of Oscar De La Hoya that stands outside the Staples Center]. Oscar De La Hoya, the live version, is in nearby Anaheim, where his company got a $5 million fee from a t-shirt maker so that he would be personally involved the promotion of a mixed martial arts show.It would take that much, Jim, to get me to go to one of those things.”
