    Affliction Joins UFC

    http://unhub.com/grw4

    In a sea change for the promotional landscape of mixed martial arts, Affliction has agreed to cease promoting fights and become an official sponsor of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

    Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports first reported the news on Friday afternoon, and a UFC official confirmed the report to MMAWeekly.com.

    A joint announcement between the Las Vegas-based promotion and California-based clothing maker is expected soon.

    Few details about the deal are known, but the popular clothing brand could be seen on Zuffa fighters as soon as Aug. 8, when UFC 101 lands in Philadelphia.

    A similar deal was first proposed last October after the postponement of Affliction’s second event, “Day of Reckoning.” Executives from the UFC and Affliction met in secret in Las Vegas and offered to take Affliction on as a sponsor and co-branded apparel maker in exchange for ceasing to promote fights. Affliction executives rejected the offer after a fiery confrontation between co-founder Todd Beard and UFC co-owner Lorenzo Ferttita.

    The fate of fighters marooned by Affliction’s cancellation of its third show, “Trilogy,” is unknown at this time.

    Check back with MMAWeekly.com for more updates on this story as it develops.

    So either DREAM, Strikeforce or the UFC then? ( Don´t think Sengoku has the pockets to get Fedor. )

    Would be cool if he went to DREAM and fought Sergei and Monson and maybe even Barnett on roids, then to Strikeforce to beat Werdum and Alistair and finally to the UFC to fight Lesnar after he has donkey konged Carwin, CC, Nog/Couture for the biggest megafight ever.

    UFC wouldn't let Fedor near Brock with out a Multi-fight exclusive contract.

    However Fedor Vs Randy - now that's doable

    why does this seem to be happening so quickly? Because it is? or People are jumping the gun with what is actually going to happen?

    celebrities are dropping like flies, the California budget is in a total freefall, our president wears poor-fitting jeans, there was another swine flu death somewhere in America!!!11!! Kimo was rumored to have died but he didn't and held a press conference about it (four people showed)...seems like the freaking sky is falling!
    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.

    Affliction agreed to cease promoting fights. M-1 was co-sponsoring the event with Affliction. I don't know, but I don't think that Affliction "owned" Fedor the way that UFC owns the rights to their fighters. Definitely just guessing on that.

    No doubt that Affliction has gone under though . . .
