    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

    figured some of u guys would like to see this

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

    Mousasi proposed a catch-weight fight of 195, but Vitor only wanted the fight at 185. Although Mousasi has fought almost his entire career as a MW, he is moving up and is somewhere in the 215-220 range currently.

    Fedor all day.

    Belfort needs to re-sign with the UFC already.

    He makes much more with Affliction than he would with the UFC (he made 200k for his KO over Lindland) and his style is better suited for a ring than the cage.

    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.

    Elite strikers tend to do better in a ring (e.g. CC, Rog Nog) than a cage. The cage favors wrestlers with a GnP style, while the ring favors striking more. Vitor has always been a tad over-inflated for his frame and 185 fits him nicely.

    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

    He also perplexed me against Yvel . Barnett had Gill mounted for several minutes with multiple oppurtunities for an armbar as Yvel was swinging up from the ground , but Josh just couldn't pull the trigger . fedor wouldv'e had that arm pretzeled in a matter of seconds . i can however see the argument of J.B. being the number 1 contender outside the UFC , really who else is there ?-no more new years eve freak shows pretty please . Josh will get handled in convincing fashion and perhaps then the powers that be will see fit to make Fedor/UFC become a reality .

    I knew that, but not at 11pm, lol. I recall Gerard has stated many times that he cannot make 185 anymore (and vacated his DREAM title) and Vitor was not willing to do a catchweight/205lb bout. That would have been great match, but this one is even more relivent to the LHW division. If he can finish Babalu that will be making a big, big statement in his US debut. Hopefully, things will go well for him....

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

    You need a digital receiver and you can either call your service provider or press a certain button to buy the event.

    Fedor by decision. I don't think he'll be able to sub or (T)KO him.

    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.
