    Affliction Banned - Fedor vs Sylvia - July 19

    Afflication clothing. We've all seen them sponsor prominent UFC fighters, a few UFC events even had Affliction as the main sponsor. Where did all the Afflication go? Well as soon as the UFC found out that Affliction was going to make their own event, the UFC banned them as sponsors. Once this PPV date was announced, the UFC rushed and set up their own free Ultimate Fight Night to keep eyes away from the Alfliction PPV.

    We shall see...


    I copied the fight card from a few websites but I'm too lazy to convert the caps, SO YOU WILL HAVE TO READ IT LIKE YELLING ON THE INTERNET!

    According to Affliction, you have it backwards. UFC banned Affliction which forced them to create their own promotion to market their brand.

    I pick both of the Emelianenko brothers over their opponents.

    How much does it cost fighters who are sponsored by Affliction? You know not being able to wear their sponsor's clothing during walk-ins and such?

    Why would they do that!?
    I may have misread those articles which was weeks ago.

    It was reported by five ounces of pain from a press conference with Affliction. I can't find it right now.

    Edit: I'm also pretty sure this is where the name "Banned" comes from.

    If Bonello's recent fight with Ninja is any indication of where he's at currently, Aleks Emalianenko is a pretty good pick for the win.

    Having said that, Bonello has choked out Dan Severn (lol*cough*work*cough*lol)

    Aleks is fighting Buentello, not Bonello, you idiot.
