Affliction Not Going Out On The Divine Wind After All


(When you want to get rid of a bunch of cash in a hurry, but don’t want to deal with the smoky mess that comes along with literally burning it, nothing beats starting up your own MMA organization.)

After rumors spread that Affliction III might possibly try to counter-program UFC 100 on July 11, Affliction’s Tom Atencio is now publicly disavowing any intention to go out kamikaze-style in a blaze of bitterly self-destructive glory.  Atencio said earlier reports that he might try and get his third event on free TV the same night as the UFC’s historic event were nonsense, adding: “In my eyes, it’s not even a possibility. It doesn’t make sense."

That’s true, Tom.  It doesn’t make sense.  But neither does paying Tim Sylvia $800,000, or even bothering to put on a third show if the main event won’t be Fedor Emelianenko vs. Josh Barnett.  So when will the third Affliction event happen, assuming there is one?  Atencio basically admits that he has no idea, which is hardly surprising. 

But wait a minute, what if this is all a clever ploy?  What if Atencio has figured out that every time he announces an event the UFC finds some way to screw with him?  Maybe this time he’s going to outsmart them.  He won’t even announce when Affliction III is.  It will just happen in the middle of the night on a Tuesday.  No prior warning at all.  Even the fighters won’t know where or when it will be.  They’ll be taken from their homes, blindfolded, and then dropped off at the arena an hour before fight time.  Imagine what a fool Dana White will feel like when he wakes up the next morning and realizes he’s been outfoxed by the t-shirt guy.

You tricky devil, Tom Atencio.  We never knew you had it in you.

Caps Lock Hal what happened??? Nick Diaz destroyed Frank Sharmrock... Although that comment about the surgeon and weed is pretty thought provoking...

Affliction is doomed, another victim of The Curse of Fedor.

Indestruktible

Cage Potato calls them like they see them: And right now Affliction DOES have really douchy T-shirts and RETARDED business sense. It's not bias its the fucking truth.
Indestruktible- April 13, 2009 at 10:39 pm
I agree. Cage potato is getting on pro-UFC. Stop using insulting terms like t-shirt guy - you're suppose to be fucking professionals. Who do you think you are? Have some respect will you. Affliction is doing a good job given the circumstances. It's so easy to criticize yet cage potato does nothing to suggest better alternatives or constructively critique their shows so they can improve.

Go give dana a reach around already...

Who wrote this article Dana White?

If he didn't whoever did might as well get on their knees and suck him off!

If you ever run into Atencio call him t-shirt guy to his face and see how he likes it.

You fucking wanna be Dana White's best friend suck ass.

Barnetts the only legit contender at this point maybe brock or mir if they string together about 4 wins. and alistair but he'll be next after barnett, unless werdum takes him out again then it'll be werdum.
Amurrrica!- April 13, 2009 at 8:34 pm
I'd like to say strikeforce and affliction should merge but one doesn't have elbows and neither have knees, still be better than UFC bumfights tho, how the fuck is japan cooler than America, Americas supposed to be bad ass not a pussy country whos afraid of knees, with states where its still illegal like were in fucking france or somethin
D Boy- April 13, 2009 at 8:26 pm
I agree with K.E.G........if you watch the fedor vs arlovski fight...andre is picking him apart, landing a majority of the shots leading up to the dumb ass flying knee
K.E.G.- April 13, 2009 at 8:04 pm
I'd rather see Fedor fight Arlovski again. Barnett is over rated the only reason people want to see it is becausea Fedor hasn't kicked his ass yet. You know wha the outcome is gonna be. Arlovski has a legite chance of beating him if he just keeps his fucking feet on the ground.
CAPS LOCK HAL- April 13, 2009 at 7:32 pm
THATS WHY THEY ARE STUPID, AND WILL NOT LAST TO MUCH LONGER. WON'T BE LONG THOUGH.
eelcozy- April 13, 2009 at 7:28 pm
I just don't understand the logic behind NOT making Fedor vs. Barnett the headlining match. All you have are heavyweights, Affliction. Quit being stupid!
CAPS LOCK HAL- April 13, 2009 at 7:25 pm
THE UFC HAS NO WORRIES WHAT SO EVER ABOUT ANY OTHER MMA ORGANIZATION. SO WHAT THE FUCK IS ALL THE FUSS ABOUT ANYWAY. NO ONE CAN TOUCH THE UFC. PLAIN AND SIMPLE. NOT GONNA HAPPEN..............
PurplePickle- April 13, 2009 at 6:44 pm
I want to see the motherfucker that can blindfold Fedor and take him from his home.
Anonymous- April 13, 2009 at 6:11 pm
Attencio is a fucking moron. I mean Affliction is the shittiest run fighting organization ive ever seen. please affliction just die already!

Mwhahaha you speak the truth.
Fucking tools and there trolling on Blogs what a bunch of bored virgins.
I still don't get it do you get a cookie or maybe daddy will use lube the next time if you get the "first" comment. Congrats and I hope you ass isn't to red and swollen this time around.

Affliction was doing bad before now with the bad economy I don't see how they can stay afloat unless someone helps them.
K.E.G.- April 13, 2009 at 5:40 pm
Actualy for some reason my comments never show up why the fuck did this one work?

Affliction sucks
