affliction trilogy fedor vs barnett
While details continue to slowly surface regarding Affliction's third event, the long-rumored headlining bout between WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko and former UFC champion Josh Barnett is finally official.
Affliction Clothing recently added the Aug. event's fight poster to the home page of its official website.
As previously rumored, the event will take place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., the same site as Affliction's previous two efforts.
While no official announcements have been made regarding additional bouts for the card, the event's poster does advertise appearances by Gegard Mousasi, Ben Rothwell, Renato "Babalu" Sobral, Tim Sylvia, Mark Hominick, Dan Lauzon, Chris Horodecki and Paul Buentello.
Earlier this month, Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio told MMAjunkie.com Radio that he was working on securing a Buentello vs. Sylvia matchup, as well as a rescheduled showdown between Horodecki and Lauzon.
Despite the informal announcement, ticket information for the event has not yet been listed on Ticketmaster.com, and the Honda Center's official website also does not yet list the event.
The rumored fight card for the event currently includes:
Champ Fedor Emelianenko vs. Josh Barnett (for WAMMA heavyweight title)
Vitor Belfort vs. Gegard Mousasi*
Paul Buentello vs. Tim Sylvia*
Paul Daley vs. Jay Hieron*
Chris Horodecki vs. Dan Lauzon*
Renato "Babalu" Sobral vs. TBA
Ben Rothwell vs. TBA
Mark Hominick vs. TBA
* - Not officially announced

I think fedor wins, however after last night and the glass jaw display of Arlovski, one never knows.

Agreed but sometimes there more motivation than money for an individual.
Like facing the best in the world at your weight class. Something which Belfort used to do.
What do you mean by his style? I agree he seems to be doing much better in rings than in the cage, but is this down to his style? Or simply maturing his techniques since his stint in the cage with top level competition.
Didnt expect his KO of the law at all.

His KO over Lindland was textbook; the best way to beat him is to rush him at the beginning before his feet get set. Lindland, an elite wrestler, is more of a methodical, grind down your opponent fighter, but he is prone to KO's in the early portions of a fight (e.g. Terrell).

This fight looks interesting in some ways. Barnetts good on the ground but he looked horrible against Fedor's Brother standing.

Dude Poopy Pants was pulled from the fight card because he was turned to hamburger by a 50 year old Ray Mercer.
Poopy Pants = Tim Sylvia

Nice of HDNet for showing the undercard for free...
I hope Dan Lauzon fakes more kicks to the groin.

I think Fedor will light Barnett up on the feet. He'll feel him out for a short while, there will be a few brief exchanges and then Fedor realizes how much faster he is than Barnett. Fedor will knock him down and eventually GnP him to a finish in the 2nd.
Vitor's getting too much hype for his Lindland KO. Santiago is not an easy fight at all, but I'll give Vitor a very slight edge to get the decision victory.
I think Mousasi is the real deal in terms of talent. He'll be the next guy to rise up to level of the Machida's, GSPs, Fedors, Silvas. He should dominate Babalu standing and I look for a TKO stoppage in the second. But it is a new weightclass and a tough opponent for Gregard.

OMG THE VITOR KO TO linland was some of the most nasty violent things ever lol. i think hes a fighter and will win. hes going to stay at 185 and his body looks way different now, he lost a lot of lean mass.
I think the fedor fight will go 3 rounds and barnett will get gassed and get TKO after trying to sudmit fedor and gets tired.
I think sobral has had a good litle streak but i think hes to much of a brawler and gets beat some how. i cant decided if i like him or not.
