    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Affliction Las Vegas show canceled

    Straight from the front page of sherdog. http://sherdog.com/news/news/afflict...ostponed-14361

    No reasons given yet as to why it was canceled. Its now in January apparently. I wanted to see top ten heavy weights fight each other. I guess that's not going to happen for a while.

    Damn, they didn't even tell Arlovski before they did it?

    This sure doesn't bode well.

    Man, I figured at least 2 shows....

    Fedor vs. Randy seems more likely now, and Dana White is once again an inexplicable genius.

    Dana probably didn't figure it all out by himself.

    True, the Fertitas seem like smart guys.

    That's it! That's the connection!

    Dana doesn't shave his head, he completely lacks the necessary physical features in his pores to manufacture hair, on account of his massive brain needing all the room in his head it can get.

    I'm guessing (hoping) there's more information to come on this...

    I originally thought it odd they were hosting this fight off-strip, albeit in a larger facility, but not at a casino property. Last fight I could think of that was hosted at the Thomas and Mack Center, which is part of UNLV, was a Holyfield fight about 10 years ago.

    Then I got wondering, now that this is cancelled:
    I wonder home much involvement the UFC had in making it difficult for Affliction to find a property host. Zuffa has all the Station Casinos, UFC events have been held at Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand and the Palm....and Trump is in with Affliction and not well-liked in Las Vegas.
