In our almost-daily update of fighters who were supposed to compete at Affliction: Trilogy

— New UFC welterweight acquisition Paul "Semtex" Daley is expected to make his Octagon debut against H.I.T. Squad product Brian Foster (10-3) at UFC 103 (September 19th, Dallas), according to MMA Weekly. Foster is currently on a three-fight win streak, and eight of his ten career wins have come by first-round stoppage. UFC 103 will be headlined by Rich Franklin vs. Vitor Belfort, which will now be at a catchweight of 195 pounds.

— The featherweight bout between Mark Hominick and Deividas Taurosevicius that was supposed to be featured on the undercard of Affliction: Trilogy will now take place at WEC 43 (September 2; Youngstown, Ohio). Hominick is a UFC/TKO vet who most recently submitted Savant Young at Affliction: Banned last July, and holds victories over Yves Edwards and Jorge Gurgel. Taurosevicius is a Lithuanian IFL vet who hasn’t competed since a unanimous decision loss to Ryan Schultz last May. WEC 43 will be headlined by the interim lightweight title fight between Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone and Ben Henderson.

Also slated for WEC 43: top-ten featherweight Wagnney Fabiano vs. Erik Koch, a 7-0 veteran of small midwestern promotions. The only explanation for this mismatch is that the WEC wants Fabiano to start destroying people before they set him up for a title shot. Because as long as Mike Brown and Jose Aldo keep putting on insane performances, nobody is going to care about poor Wagnney.

Foster by drilling takedown after takedown. hughes will teach him the ways.

Yeah, but now I feel bad for him.
That was kind of a let down to see the UFC throw "The Semtex" a guy that low in the ranks (No Disrespect Brian, we're cool).

Can we fucking decide a weight class for Rich Franklin. I like him making a run at 205 since we don't need to see him get kneed into oblivion again by spider. Watch is this catchweight shit? It'd be nice to see Wanderlei at 185 for good. And it'd be nice if we picked either weight class for Belfort. Quit it with these catchweight shit fights. Let's build some contenders in some weight classes!

He won't be able to kick your ass after Semtex puts him in a coma if that makes you feel any better.

Don't you hate it when you look at a picture of a fighter (especially when CP is pokin fun), and you're like "Look at this mu fucka", and then you have to realize that this dude might just be able to kick my ass?

I like Hominick. He used to dominate in TKO.
