    bullshido Fight Report: May 22, 2008. Affliction Banned NYC Press Conference

    I had the pleasure of covering the May 22nd Affliction Banned: Fedor vs Sylvia press conference in NYC...and even more pleasure to share the day with you guys here at Bullshido. I posted nearly the entire press conference for you guys so, the video is in 3 parts.

    In attendance today were Fedor Emilianenko, Tim Sylvia, Josh Barnett, Renato Sobral, Fabio Nascimento, Ben Rothwell, Matt Lindland, Mike Whitehead, and Pedro Rizzo.

    Enjoy the conference. This is shaping up to be an incredibly stacked card. I am told that Arlovski's spot on the card will be officially announced in about a week and that "little" Nogiera has signed onto the card as well.

    The first hour of the night will be broadcast live on Fox Sports Net with Alexander Emilianenko's bout as the Fox main event. The PPV show will begin right after.

    I will post some pics from the press conference soon.

    Great job, Sambo Steve! Man, you were in the middle of everything. Why was Jay Glazer so nervous, he's on tv all the time?

    I don't know. He was a nice guy for sure. Speaking live is different than in front of a camera. But, I did not think he seemed that nervous.

    Didn't know little Nog was going to be on the card, though I heard Affliction had picked him up.

    This will be an amazing one off.

    They did not say he was on this card specifically, but rumors were there.

    I doubt anyone of them actually wanted to wear those Affliction shirts.
