    Yea, that would be fine with me as well as all MMA fans I think. Fedor-Couture needs to happen. Barnett-Arlovski would be a nice clash of styles.

    Affliction doens't have enough depth right to put on a lot of shows. Hopefully they co-promote with EliteXC to put on some cards. Ideally they'd co-promote with the UFC but let's not kid ourselves!

    Seeing as how Elite XC banned them as well, I just don't see that happening. It's one thing for Elite to partner with DREAM because they're not a direct competitive threat (Dream is mainly targeting Japan, EliteXC is mainly targeting North America). But Affliction is, so I don't see them doing it.

    Fedor Emelianenko vs Andrei Arlovski Affliction fight slated for October 11 at UFC blog for UFC news, results, videos, rumors, fights, pics and tickets — MMAmania.com

    Would have preferred Fedor-Couture or Fedor-Barnett but can't say I can complain about this matchup. Not sure if this is official yet though.

    I still haven't gotten around to watching the Affliction card, so I'm not sure exactly how AA looked, but from what I've read, he looked like the old Pitbull. I think this would be a good fight, and AA has a decent Sambo background himself. I hope this goes ahead.

    Vitor looked very impressive at 185. Seems he's got his head on straight.

    War Vitor!!!!

    Affliction wants to put the screws to UFC. This is a better matchup.

    It builds the brand by crapping on UFC if Fedor wins, especially if they can get Couture out of his contract in time for a December/January fight which is the culmination of all this.

    Who does Barnett fight in the meantime? Sylvia? Overreem?

    I'd say either Tim-meh or Rothwell.

    Arlovski looked great. The fight with Rothwell was a fight of the year candidate. Make sure you check it out!

    Yea, I sense that as well. The Barnett fight is one I am anxious to see but I don't think lot of US MMA fans know who he is. Better to build him up first. US fans know who Arlovski is and he's coming off an exciting fight. Plus, like you mentioned Fedor taking out 2 UFC title holders would be a boost for Affliction.

    Sylvia makes the most sense. On the Savage Dog Show, Rothwell mentioned that he wanted to fight Paul Buentello.
