Aleksander Calling For Barnett Rematch At Affliction 2
Aleksander Emelianenko is calling for Josh Barnett to be his opponent when he fights for Affliction in January. The Russian heavyweight spoke to Fighters Only on Saturday when he appeared in Nottingham for the UK leg of the M-1 Challenge tour. Asked by Fighters Only editor-in-chief Ian ‘The Machine’ Freeman who he wanted to fight next, the Russian heavyweight said: “There is only one choice... Josh Barnett.” Emelianenko and Barnett have some history, as they have fought each other once before in a PRIDE FC event that took place in 2006. At first it was Emelianenko that had the edge as he pummelled Barnett around the ring, but the American was eventually able to force the fight to the floor and obtain a keylock submission.

Aleksander Emelianenko to Fight on Affliction's January Show
Aleksander Emelianenko will be fighting at Affliction’s next mixed martial show in the New Year. Speaking exclusively to Fighters Only earlier, the Russian heavyweight revealed that he will be heading to the USA soon to film promotional videos for the event. “I am going back to the States next week to do interviews and make some film for the January event,” he said. “But I don’t know about any opponent yet, all that is in the process of being sorted out.” Aleks added that he may also “fight around Christmas-time in Japan”.

LC Davis is one of the best unsigned featherweight prospects today and has been in negotiations with World Extreme Cagefighting and Affliction. Davis confirmed exclusively to MMAWeekly.com that he has signed a contract with Affliction. The IFL veteran agreed to a non-exclusive three-fight deal that will span a one-year period. “I decided to go with Affliction mainly for three reasons,” explained Davis. “First, they offered a non-exclusive contract that would allow me to stay active and allow me to jump on big opportunities that may arise. Second, they offered me a one-year deal and weren’t trying to lock me in forever like some other companies. Last, the money was way better. I feel Affliction is making the right steps to become a great promotion.” Davis left a full-time job to pursue his dream. The Kansas City resident wanted to take his career to the next level and made the decision to move to Bettendorf, Iowa, home to Miletich Fighting Systems.

Fedor Talking Japan on NYE, Affliction Says No
Fedor appeared at the DREAM.6 show and teased the fans with a potential New Year's Eve fight, possibly against gold medal judoka Satoshi Ishii. Naturally Affliction's not happy since they have big plans for Fedor to headline their show on January 11th in the U.S. or do they..... Not so fast says Affliction Entertainment VP, Tom Atencio. "Fedor was supposed to fight for them on New Year's Eve, but he is not because we extended his contract," Atencio said. When asked if it was 100% confirmed that Fedor would be fighting on the upcoming Affliction/Golden Boy card on January 17, 2009, in Anaheim, Atencio stopped us dead in our tracks. "The date and location are not official," Atencio said. "Everyone is tripping. Our next show will definitely be the 1st quarter of 2009 in January, possibly February. Nothing is confirmed though." Fightlnker speaks for everyone with a brain here: Hmm, so let’s see what we know: Fedor’s Affliction contract is a US only contract. Affliction doesn’t even have a date locked down for Fedor’s next fight and therefore no bout contract has been signed. How likely do you think it is given those facts that Fedor is going to pass up on another NYE event in Japan? The dude magically pulled a NYE event out of his ass last year because he loves doing it so much. Does anyone really think he’s going to pass this up for a proposed event by a company that just cancelled it’s last event and is working on a questionable partnership with a boxing promotion?
