    Dammit, not again


    Looks like Fedor hurt his hand during his raping of Sylvia.


    It is being reported by FiveOuncesofPain.com that a hand injury may put a chink in the finalization of a proposed WAMMA heavyweight bout between champion Fedor Emelianenko and Andrei Arlovski.

    The report said Emelianenko has been dealing with the lingering injury and it's severity makes it very unlikely that the Russian will be ready to compete by the October 11 fight date. It's not stated as to whether Emelianenko competed with the injury in his 36-second dismantling of Tim Sylvia in July, or whether the injury was reaggravated afterwards. For the time being, it appears that Affliction is working on a replacement headline bout that will likely see Arlovski square off with fellow ranked heavyweight Josh Barnett.

    Both fighters are coming off impressive victories at Affliction's debut event, entitled "Banned," last month. Barnett scored a measure of revenge over old foe Pedro Rizzo with a second-round knockout of the veteran, while Arlovski broke down Ben Rothwell with a punishing series of strikes en route to a third-round TKO victory.

    Recently, Emelianenko had expressed a desire to compete two more times during 2008. With these new injury concerns coming to light, coupled with Emelianenko's plans to compete in Japan on a New Year's Eve fight card, there is a strong possibility that the next time the PRIDE standout competes of American soil will be in early 2009.

    Other bouts currently in the works for Affliction's second event include a middleweight scrap between Matt Lindland and Vitor Belfort, as well as a clash between UFC standouts Renato "Babalu" Sobral and Tito Ortiz.

    I just talked to a friend of Josh Barnett and he said that Josh is fighting AA in the next Affliction fight. I thought he was mistaken unitl I read your post. Fedor's hurt hand explains a lot I guess. This will still be one hell of a fight and the winner should obviously fight Fedor at Affliction 3.

    So does Fedor officially not wrap his hands? If not, why wouldn't he wrap them?

    AA-Barnett is a good fight, not an even trade but an interesting #1 contender match. Hopefully, Aleksander can fight (ie no Hep B). Sylvia-Aleks would be fun.

    I don't think Aleks has Hep B, that was just a nasty rumor. Even if he did, isn't Hep B curable like 90% of the time? I think its Hep C that isn't curable and ****s with your liver.

    AA/Barnett and Aleks/Sylvia would be awesome. Plus Tito/Babalu, Vitor/Lindland, and then maybe Buentello/Rothwell and some lightweight fights.

    Aleks problem was just with paperwork, not failing the physical/bloodwork. Hopefully, he will get his visa and license issues done in advance to beat some ass.

    Not sure about Hep B. Maybe it just goes away magically like Tommy Morrison's HIV? I did hear it was paperwork too, and hopefully that's true.

    Yeah, this could be a great card again. I really hope it catches on but the marketing will have to be much better. Too many people don't know who these guys are.

    Awesome avatar. I was hoping for a little back-and-forth exchange with Emo, but he must have ran back to his Banana friends...

    The Janitor - Lil Nog is likely for this event also. The Janitor cannot be beat.

    Yeah, hopefully Janitor/Lil Nog 2 is better than the first one. I think Lil Nog will do a better job keeping it standing and KO or hurt and then submit the Janitor.

    It has gotten bad around here, huh. We don't even discuss events anymore. I'm gonna start posting more now that I'm going to AA.

    Arlovski is coming off an impressive win with his lackadaisical win over Rothwell? Fedor would probably dispatch of Andrei in as timely a fashion as he did with Tim. Arvloski/Barnett is a better match-up and at least builds up a fight with Fedor.

    Lacksadaisical? That was the best win he's had in years and he tried for the finish numerous times. I admit that he looked bad on bottom in the 2nd, but there were a lot of flashes of the old AA in there.

    This is a better matchup most likely. If AA wins too, he comes in confident to fight Fedor which is important.

    I cant see AA beating Barnett. Maybe he will catch him on the feet, but other than that I see barnett controling it throughout, and probably stopping AA in the late 2nd round.

    The card for 10-11 does look decent. Instead of Tito/Babalu I would have rather Tito/Lil Nog. Maybe at a later date

    AA's standup is a lot better, and he's much quicker. On the ground or in the clinch, Barnett should have an advantage.
