Next PPV from them is October 11th, in Las Vegas and has Fedor vs Arlovski as the main event.

This is great news, as it will spur UFC to put on more great bouts, and will hopefully make all the MMA PPVs more exciting.

Really, should we tripping over ourselves congratulating Affliction for a match my eleven year old nephew could've booked?

For that matter, Fedor v Arlovski is the MMA equivalent of HHH v Jericho. It looks nice on paper, but it's not going to jive in the ring and we ALLLLLLLLL know who's gonna win.

After reading a few interviews from Dana White, I really want to see Affliction succeed. In interviews, he's proven himself to be a ruthless, rude character who just wants to destroy his competition. He's insulted the guy who runs the promotion, and well...I guess he doesn't appreciate the fact that competition can bring out the best in companies.

If there's any HW not named Minotauro who I think could have a chance against Fedor it would be Arlovski. He has a ton of speed, both of foot and of hand, and that's something that would be kind of different for Fedor to deal with. He might be able to get in and out causing damage before Fedor can land/wrap him up.

Don't get me wrong, I think Fedor beats him. But of all the HW out there right now, I think Arlovski is probably the best matchup for him.

The thing about Affliction, though, is that I'm curious to see what their business plan is for their fourth PPV. They have enough good heavyweights to last three shows (I'm presuming we'll get Fedor vs. Barnett in the winter), but after that....what? Hoping against all legal logic that Randy Couture is granted his release?



“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

That is one of those knockouts that make you wonder if Pacquiao will ever be the same fighter. Of course I looked away when it happened. Nothing ever happens in the last 5 seconds of a round anyway ... right?
