    Affliction To Use “Biggest Ring Ever”

    http://www.mmafrenzy.com/2008/07/16/affliction-to-use-biggest-ring-ever/

    In a recent Sherdog.com interview Mark Hominick, who will be competing on Affliction’s undercard this Saturday against Savant Young, mentioned yet another feature to be included in the clothing company’s inaugural MMA showcase:

    “You know, it’s gonna be the biggest heavyweight card of all time, especially on North American soil. And, you know, they’re bringing in the biggest ring ever in the States, so it’s gonna be huge, you know, room to play. So I’m gonna be excited to be in there… I’m a kickboxer. I trade, and I love the ring. I’ve talked to Savant, he likes the ring too.”

    It’s difficult to report this and not make mention of the IFL’s once proposed fancy gimmick ring “The Hex” which was a failed idea before it ever got off the ground. I give Affliction credit for breaking the bank to obtain over-sized rings and metal bands and all that fun stuff, but I do hope they remember that some people are actually supposed to fight that night as well.

    I have a big concern with how they plan on getting aleks into the states for this card as well.

    Wouldn't a smaller ring be better? There would be less room to run and the action could increase.

    Way to not learn from history.*

    Oh come on now guys. Surely the owner of a clothing company knows SOMETHING about how to budget a big time MMA event?

    Right?

    What are they spending? 6 million or so? Even if it's a total loss that's not a huge amount - it's just their marketing budget. Nike spends over a billion a year on marketing.

    True, even if this is a huge failure, it's a great ad for affliction.

    What are the dimensions of the ring?

    My man, you are forgetting that Affliction has The Donald as a major financial backer.
    Oh, and YOUR FIRED.
