“Affliction Entertainment is currently engaged in preliminary discussions regarding the possibility of promoting its third-ever event on Saturday, July 11. Such a booking would put the promotion in direct competition with the UFCâ€™s historic UFC 100 pay-per-view event …. meetings are expected to take place within the next several weeks regarding a possible television partner for the proposed event. If enough fighters were willing to accept a reduced rate to compete on the show.”
Sounds like a bad decision for Affliction to going head to head with a stacked UFC 100 fightcard. The report also quotes a source saying Affliction wants to get out of MMA “with a bang”.
“One source also indicated to us that the possible July event for Affliction could be the companyâ€™s last MMA show, with the popular lifestyle clothing label looking to â€œgo out with a bangâ€ by going up against UFC 100.”
