Affliction Nascar
(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:

Main Card (pay-per-view)
Fedor Emelianenko vs. Andrei Arlovski
Josh Barnett vs. TBA
Vitor Belfort vs. TBA

Gomi And The Goat Get Opponents For “Sengoku”


(Every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man.)

World Victory Road has announced that “Sengoku” – their March 5th show – will feature Takanori Gomi and Duane “Bang” Ludwig squaring off at the National Yoyogi Stadium Gymnasium No. 1. It’s both a stadium and a gymnasium and apparently the first of several like it. You’ll recall that Gomi signed with WVR after the UFC couldn’t come to terms with the superstar lightweight. Gomi earns around $190k per fight – not quite Brock Lesnar money, but still a payday I wouldn’t kick out of bed.

Gomi last fought a year ago when he was submitted by Nick Diaz, but that one was changed to a no-decision after Nick was busted for tokin’. Ludwig beat Shinya Kumazawa via submission last year, then lost to Paul Daley via TKO. He rebounded by beating Mario Stapel with a KO in less than two minutes. He’s 16-7 compared to Gomi’s 27-3 record.

Two other fights were also revealed for WVR’s March 5th event. BodogFight champ Nick “The Goat” Thompson is set to do battle with Fabricio “Pitbull” Monteiro. Ryo Kawamura will face Antonio Braga Neto. The Goat is 34-9-1 and Monteiro is 16-6. His last fight was a TKO loss to Mohamed Khacha, while Thompson is on a ten fight win streak. Kawamura is 7-2-2 in his young career, but went 2-2 in 2007. Neto is undefeated in four professional fights, three of them from last year.

WVR signed Kazuyuki Fujita last week and they have also slated him for “Sengoku”, although an opponent has not been named. Other fighters that are to be involved in the show are:

-Kazuo Misaki v Siyar Bahadurzada
-Makoto Takimoto v Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos
-Hidehiko Yoshida v Roger Gracie (rumored)

With these new additions to who they already have, WVR looks poised to put on a solid fucking show. The UFC’s inability to sign or resign top fighters has certainly been the gain of other organizations. WVR has been one to capitalize quickly.
