(Couldn’t have done it without you, big guy.)
As much as it looked like it might never happen at times, Affliction: Day of Reckoning is going on sale this week. The online presale started today and tickets officially go on sale Wednesday for the January 24 event. They’ve even added more fights than just the Fedor Emelianenko-Andrei Arlvoski bout in some crazy attempt to entice people by telling them what they’re actually paying for.
According to Affliction’s website, here’s what the card is looking like so far:
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Vladimir Matyushenko
Jay Hieron vs. Jason High
Mark Hominick vs. LC Davis
Albert Rios vs. Antonio Duarte
Brett Cooper vs. TBA
Paul Buentello vs. Kiril “Baby Fedor” Sidellnikov
Okay, so it’s not exactly the stacked card they debuted with, though there are still some interesting TBA’s that could add some zing. Note that even though Barnett needs an opponent, we still don’t see Tim Sylvia‘s overpriced ass on there. Can’t say I blame them.
