    Just yesterday sherdog released that Fedor will be facing Tim Sylvia over the summer. DreamFighters.com has learned through some sources, and also on the Savage Dog Show, that they have added some fights to the fight card. Here are the rumored bouts:

    Tim Sylvia Vs. Fedor

    Andrei Arlovski Vs. Ben Rothwell

    Babalu Vs. Mike Whitehead

    Pedro Rizzo Vs. Josh Barnett

    Alexander Emelienenko vs. TBA


    These are however rumors, and from limited sources, but we will bring you confirmation once it happens.

    Aleksander can't fight in the US from what I've heard because of his prison record in Russia (and the tattoo on his back).

    I'm not sure if that's true. It might be hard to get a Visa though. And CSAC probably wouldn't license him but other commissions will. There are several fighters with prison histories that have fought stateside. Hopefully he can fight here though.

    Rothwell might beat Arlovski, but I doubt it. Rothwell is poor mans Barnett, IMO, maybe homeless.

    It aint that good, especially considering Aleksander isn't likely to fight here. I agree though, too good to be true.

    Ah, you just kinda made it seem like his age was a bad thing. If anything, it's because Rizzo is older and almost punch-drunk. When they fought, Rizzo was a machine and Barnett was just coming into his own.

    Barnett/Rizzo has been confirmed by Rizzo according to sherdog. I can't wait for this event, even if the rest of the card doesn't pan out it's still huge in my book.

    Most have already begun the Sylvia isn't a threat ither talk. Who does Fedor have to fight for it to be legit? The only better fights for him at this point are probably Couture and Barnett. So he's arguably fighting the 3rd biggest threat available that he hasn't already beaten. I really hope he fights Couture after he beats Sylvia so people will just shut the **** up.

    I agree, but you forgot Sergei. I think he would be a tougher fight for Fedor than Randy.

    I agree, Sergei would be a tougher test for Fedor. I'd like to shut the mouths of all the Randy worshippers before he's too old to fight Fedor. Then Sergei/Barnett/up and comers, maybe even Lesnar in a few years, to shut CNorris' mouth.

    Same here, Im definitely not anti-Randy, but Fedor needs to beat that ass just to shut everyone up.

    AA-Rothwell confirmed.

    http://www.mmahq.com/2008/05/12/andr...iction-banned/

    Affliction just announced today that Andre Arlovski and Ben Rothwell will fight each other at Affliction: Banned on July 19.

    The “Banned” fight card will be the first show promoted by Affliction and has one of the best fight cards of the year. Both Rothwell and Arlovski are under contract with Adrenaline MMA but are fighting with permission on the Affliction card. Since the inaugural Adrenaline event is just a month earlier, both fighters will not be available for the Adrenaline show. The Adrenaline website does say both fighters are still scheduled to compete on the second Adrenaline fight card on September 6.

    Here is the current fight card for the Affliction: Banned event:

    Wow, this is impressive. I wonder what the odds will be on Rothwell/Arlovski, if Arlovski is heavily favored I may have to hit up Bodog.
