WWE's Bobby Lashley signs with American Fight League
(mmajunkie.com)
Former World Wrestling Entertainment performer and decorated amateur wrestler Bobby Lashley is the latest signing for the Kentucky-based American Fight League. A source close to the 31-year-old told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Lashley will be introduced as an AFL signee -- perhaps the organization's biggest to date -- during tonight's "Bulletproof" show at Phillips Arena in Atlanta. Rumors of Lashley's possible transition into MMA heated up over the past month, but few expected such a high-profile figure to sign with an organization so new to the national scene. AFL officials declined to comment today, but one executive said some "major signings" will be announced at tonight's show, which features a main event between AFL lightweight champ and former UFC fighter Diego Saraiva. Terms of Lashley's contract aren't known, but it's expected to be a non-exclusive deal. Lashley, a two-time NAIA national wrestling champion while at Missouri Valley College, also won two armed-forces titles while serving in the U.S. Army. He signed with the WWE in 2003 and debuted with the organization in 2005. His character won titles in both the WWE and Extreme Championship Wrestling organizations.

HDNet to air three Adrenaline MMA events
(mmajunkie.com)
Monte Cox's Adrenaline MMA will launch with a TV deal. The all-high-definition cable station HDnet, which has partnered with many of MMA's top fight organizations, has struck a deal with upstart Adrenaline MMA and will air the promotion's first three shows. The announcement was made during Friday's edition of "Inside MMA." Arendaline MMA, formerly the restructured M-1 Global organization, recently severed ties with what was supposed to be its top fighter: former PRIDE heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko. Instead, Cox said the organization will now use a mix of up-and-coming talent and proven veterans signed to non-exclusive deals.

Tim Sylvia talks about the fight with Fedor, the UFC and Kimbo
(thegarv.com)
Tim Sylvia, the six foot eight former UFC heavyweight champion, will be taking on the great Fedor Emelianenko in July at Affliction Banned. I spoke to Tim at the Affliction Banned press conference in NYC today. Hey Tim. Your split with the UFC, was it about money? No, I'm not gonna say that. It's just we were both at crossroads in our career. I was at a crossroad in my career and they just didn't know what they wanted to do. I had no interest in fighting a prelim fight in my next fight. And the thing is if I won I would be back in title contention again. And how many people really want to see Tim Sylvia fighting for a heavyweight title in the UFC again. You know, I've done it like eight times. So they just had a different route they wanted to do with the UFC right now and I've got some different things that I'm wanting to do. So I'll do my thing for a couple of years and hopefully I'll have a home back in the UFC someday.

AFFLICTION MMA ANNOUNCES DEAL WITH FOX SPORTS
(mmaweekly.com)
At a press conference held Tuesday in Los Angeles, the forces behind new fight promotion Affliction unveiled the stars of their “Banned” show to be held July 19th at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Fedor Emelianenko will clash with Tim Sylvia in the main event, and Josh Barnett and Pedro Rizzo will co-headline the event in a rematch of their 2001 fight. Ben Rothwell, Matt Lindland, Renato “Babalu” Sobral, and Aleksander Emelianenko are but a few of the fighters filling the card. And according to Tim Ryan, president and CEO of the Honda Center, the stars are lining up for the show, with $250,000 in tickets sold within the first 30 minutes of going on sale Tuesday morning. California State Athletic Commission executive director Armando Garcia confirmed that a 3.5 million dollar bond had already been posted for the show, clearing the way for ticket sales to the public. The bond ensures, among other things, that fighters are guaranteed their purses. The amount of the bond further refutes the rumors that the fighters’ purses alone were expected to total six million dollars. Also announced was a partnership with Fox Sports Net to air the evening’s hour long undercard live. Making his way to the black stage at the trendy Century City shopping mall, Fedor Emelianenko received a raucous welcome from hundreds of fans – some of them waited five hours for an autograph – before speaking for the first time about his fight with Tim Sylvia. And not so subtly, he established the link between his services and Affliction, thanking M-1 Global – the defunct American/Russian MMA promotion now run by his manager Vadim Finkelstein – and Affliction for bringing him to California.

Emelianenko vs. Buentello added to July 19 Affliction card Officially
(mmajunkie.com)
A once-rumored match between Aleksander Emelianenko (13-3) and Paul Buentello (25-10) is now official for the July 19 "Affliction: Banned" show. The organization, which will air its main card on pay per view, made the announcement during today's media and fan events in Los Angeles and New York City. The latest booking further bolsters a fight card that's full of familiar names, including main-event participants Fedor Emelianenko and Tim Sylvia. Aleksander Emelianenko, the younger brother of Fedor, has bounced around the MMA circuit ever since the demise of PRIDE Fighting Championships, his former home. He's 4-0 in his past four fights, which included stops with BodogFIGHT, M-1 and Hardcore Championship Fighting. He most recently defeated Silvao Santos via first-round TKO at an April 3 M-1 event in Russia. Buentello, a former UFC heavyweight contender, hasn't fought since a November 2007 loss to Alistair Overeem for the first-ever Strikeforce world heavyweight title. The second-round submission loss was his first defeat in five fights -- and just his second loss in his past 12 fights. Expect fireworks with the the Emelianenko-Buentello clash. Of the two fighters' combined 38 victories, 24 have come via knockout or knockout.
