UPDATE: Affliction Counter-Attacks UFC, Entire Affliction ‘Banned’ Fight Card To Air On Pay Per View And FSN

The Vice President of Affliction, Tom Atencio, has announced earlier today that they will be airing the entire fight card.  The Affliction: "Banned" event headlines Fedor Emelianenko vs. Tim Sylvia along with several other must-see bouts scheduled to take place this Saturday, July 19th:

Main Fight Card:

Pay Per View:

  • Fedor Emelianenko vs. Tim Sylvia
  • Andrei Arlovski vs. Ben Rothwell
  • Josh Barnett vs. Pedro Rizzo
  • Renato "Babalu" Sobral vs. Mike Whitehead
  • Matt Lindland vs. Fabio "Negao" Nascimento
  • Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Edwin Dewees
  • Mike "Quicksand" Pyle vs. JJ Ambrose
  • Ray Lazama vs. Justin Levens

Preliminary Fight Card:

Televised on FSN (Fox Sports Net):

  • Gary "Big Daddy" Goodridge vs. Paul Buentello
  • Vitor Belfort vs. Terry Martin
  • Savant Young vs. Mark Hominick

Dana White and the UFC prepared the UFC Fight Night 14 event on the same night of Affliction’s world debut.  Many feel Dana White purposely organized this card in a goal to steer MMA fans away from the stacked Affliction fight card.  Both organizations have a tremendous lineup, which makes it very difficult to decide what event to watch LIVE.  Either way, everyone MUST see both events one way or another…can’t wait!!!
