    That's the sad thing. You said it, I said it, and I'm sure a lot of other people said it. I wonder if Randy Couture said it?

    I'm pretty disappointed we won't see Mousasi fight Babalu.
    I doubt they can afford it (for the most part) but considering the problems Strikeforce has been having with its card, it would be a good idea if Strikeforce takes on some of these matches. It could be an absolutely win/win situation. Strikeforce comes in to save the day with some exciting matches. The fighter's training would not have been for naught. Affliction can advertise throughout the whole Strikeforce card with their brand name in case they want to put on a future card or just sell more t-shirts. The fans are happy.

    Just imagine some of the future cards that can be put on. Jake Shields vs Vitor Belfort for the 185 pound title or even Robbie Lawler vs Vitor Belfort would be cool. Dan Lauzon vs Nick Diaz at a catchweight of 160. Awesome stuff here.

    Is this the end for Affliction?
    Seems like it unfortunately. Figured that any replacement they find would be the end of Affliction. This may be a good thing for the company as a whole. Interest has waned since the news of Barnett's failed test surfaced. It probably isn't a financially good idea to put on the event now. They probably wouldn't be able to make their money back(and most reports out there suggest they have yet to actually make ANY money from their past two events due to a bloated payroll, production costs, etc).

    Affliction: Trilogy CANCELLED

    In a matter of days Affliction Entertainment's "Trilogy" event when from promising the top heavyweight fight in mixed martial arts to being cancelled outright, multiple sources confirmed to SI.com Friday morning.
    Affliction Entertainment vice president began making calls with the news Friday morning to fighters scheduled to appear on the Aug. 1 card, SI.com has learned.
    The abrupt change comes in the wake of 31-year-old Josh Barnett testing positive for banned substances following a California State Athletic Commission pre-fight drug test.
    Is this the end for Affliction?
