Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Double-Liveblog Action This Weekend!

(Spider-Man punching a hole through the Sandman; just saying.)

Attention, Potato Nation! We will be liveblogging both “Affliction: Banned” and “Silva vs. Irvin” on Saturday night. I (BG) will be posting round-by-round updates and commentary for the Affliction show, while live updates for the UFC card on SpikeTV will be handled by the lovely and talented Chad Dundas of MMA-America. Fowlkes will be attending the Affliction show in person and will surely return on Monday with wild stories. Luiz De Souza, I would imagine, will be somewhere furiously translating Portuguese. And there you have it — there’s no other place to be this weekend for MMA event coverage than Come by and bring friends.

As it turns out, I’ll have my hands full covering Affliction, since the entire card will now be televised. “Banned” was originally slated to feature two fights on Fox Sports Net and five fights on pay-per-view, with four preliminary bouts expected to go untelevised. Now, FSN will feature three matches, and the rest will be on the PPV card. Here are the particulars:

Affliction: Banned prelims — Live on FSN, 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET; will feature Aleksander Emelianenko vs. Paul Buentello, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Edwin Dewees + 1 more fight
Affliction: Banned main card — Live on pay-per-view starting at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET
UFC: Silva vs. Irvin — Live on SpikeTV, 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET

Be here.

I would love to "be here" , but your site takes a sh!t when more the 20 people are on it... I can't stand having to wait 20min's between post.

I hit you because I love you...This hurts me more then it hurts you. NOW CLEAN IT UP!!!!

Affliction has to do a better job of advertising the fact that Aleksander is fighting. I had literally forgotten he was on the card.
