    Just a quick thought about the next Affliction show (which is little more than a month away, with little to no advertising so far, again).

    Based on the salaries for the last event, the payroll is looking like this:

    Arlovski: $500k
    Barnett: $300k
    Little Nog: $50k
    Lindland: $225k
    Rothwell: $250k
    Rizzo: $75k
    Buentello: $60k
    Pyle: $15k

    That's $1,475,000 so far and there's like 10 fighters I can't fight salary info for (Hieron, Matyushenko, Nelson & Fickett will probably be looking for around $50,000 each), and these are base salaries only. Win bonuses could easily be another $500,000 ($345,000 alone if Lindland, Arlovski & Buentello win). And this show has nowhere near the drawing power the 1st one did. This has catastrophe written all over it. So, they're going to spend another 2 million in salary. The 1st show apparently did somewhere between 60k-100k in PPV. This one will be lucky to draw 50k. They can't keep this up much longer.

    MAIN CARD (PPV)

    Andrei Arlovski vs. Josh Barnett
    Vladimir Matyushenko vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
    Matt Lindland vs. Trevor Prangley
    Chris Horodecki vs. Dan Lauzon
    Ben Rothwell vs. Pedro Rizzo
    Drew Fickett vs. Jay Hieron
    Antonio Duarte vs. Albert Rios

    PRELIMINARY CARD (HDNet)

    Paul Buentello vs. Roy Nelson
    Jason High vs. Mike Pyle
    Chase Gormley vs. Jay White

    Me thinks Dana might be right about Afflictions future. I know they asked some of the fighters to take a pay cut, but how many would actually be willing to do it. I know Barnett has already said no way.

    Yea, that was incredible......

    Sort of the same way Chuck got caught in the second Rampage fight. Went for that looping body shot without jabbing first and he got lit up. Rashad did it in more spectacular fashion though.

    Has Chuck gotten up yet? Wow, he was out cold! I didn't think Rashad had it in him.

On Sunday, a campsite was discovered in the Clapp Springs area of the Palo Verde mountains. Tanner’s motorcycle was found at the campsite. A body was found today when a sheriffs deputy was flying around the general location of the campsite. The Imperial County deputy coroner is being flown in to retrieve and identify body.
    I really hope this isn't him, and that he's found safe and sound.
