I didn't think of zuffa going out of their way to make life difficult for them but of course that makes complete sense. I figured affliction might just be caving in through investors not seeing a return fast enough and that made me a sad panda. I really wanted to see an Arlovski Barnett fight or even Barnett Fedor at some stage.
Give the man a cigar.

I wouldn't put it past them to make venu scheduling difficult. After all, Dana does own Las Vegas.
Dana White did. I think he gets 1 dollar, plus the guarantee of a permanent lifetime fortune, and status as Giant Vegas Douche.

Essentially they are teaming up with Golden Boy to put on mma/boxing shows. Weird to me. What's the average length of a boxing match? If its much more than a 15 minute mma match I don't know how these shows will work. Oh and Jan 17 is the date for the return at the moment. I think Fedor's hand will be good to go again by the time that comes around so who knows what we will see.
