    I mean, think about it. It's their 3rd show, their main event folded at the 11th hour (sorta), they bring in someone to fill in the slot...

    If this follows the pattern of EliteXC then does this mean that Fedor will get beat and Affliction will crumble???

    Actually what's going on is that Meltzer confirmed this from Barnett himself, but that this story isn't necessarily what the CSAC is going to be reporting later on today.

    Vitor cuts big to make 185 and has historically fought at HW. The fight will be sanctioned because Vitor is probably weighing more than 205 right now.

    Well, that's pretty obvious, but I find the similarities to be quite hilarious between the situation EliteXC was in and the one Affliction is in right now. I doubt Fedor would lose regardless of who he fights. Unfortunately, I believe that this will probably be Affliction's last show.

    Can't fighters at this level afford to buy some 'roid-free urine?

    Randleman tried this and hilarity ensued.

    You mean Brett Rogers? There's contractual issues that would possibly make that difficult (he's under contract to Strikeforce), IIRC.

    Vitor appears to be confirmed. I don't get why Rogers would have been a problem though, Affliction loaned Strikeforce AA.
