Affliction 3 “Trilogy” Fedor Emelianenko vs. Josh Barnett on August 1.
July 9, 2009 at 11:48 pm
Once again affliction fails to make a very well hyped trailer. card like this deserves some better promo work. It just does not flow well. But I guess that has been their MO from the start. Tom Atencio is not the best speaker either, his head bobbing combined with statements like "Fedor Emelianenko is the number one fight, heavy weight fighter in the world" just bug me. He keeps going back over himself.
The card itself is typical affliction, decent but not enough to compete for my money.

Fuck Barnett and Fador..
Its all about Vitor and Bobalu

decent, this card is great and barnett vs fedor alone is worth it. that has to be the biggest hw fight ever.to me thus card is better than ufc 100.

Rich, I agree with you about the AFfliction promo videos. I think the main problem is Tom Atencio himself. He can't speak and he has nothing to say that isn't said in every other promo video.
The only thing I disagree with is how can you call yourself an MMA fan and not want to watch this fight card? Affliction isn't anywhere close to the marketing levels of the UFC and their talent pool isn't nearly as deep…but one thing about them is that they pit their best fighters against each other each time with no politics or games. The UFC has had a lot of great cards and a lot of duds. Therefore, I have to pick and chose. Not with Affliction though, they are batting 1000 so far in their very short promotion run and I will keep watching until they either go under or disappoint.

HA HA I don't think Fedor vs Barnett is the biggest heavyweight fight ever. I dont think its in the top 10 biggest Heavyweight fights ever. I think Arlovski and Fedor was a better fight than this is going to be. I have no clue how Barnett is ranked #2 heavyweight. I think Brock and Mir is a bigger fight than this.
July 10, 2009 at 6:19 am
Brock and Mir?
3-1 (champ lol) vs 12-3 (Mir)
Mir has just beat a sick BJJ artist who has NO stand up game whatsoever, who at best, is past his Prime.
really i mean how the fuck that fight even got ME on UFC 100 is past me.
July 10, 2009 at 6:41 am
that is funny brock vs mir is bigger, imo fedor vs barnett is the biggest ever if you got one better please name it but brock vs mir really isn't close.and for the record barnett wil give him a better fight than anyone we have seen recently and may even win.
July 10, 2009 at 6:43 am
Mike you obviously don't watch enough MMA. Sure Brock is 3-1 but anyone who knows anything about MMA knows he can beat 95% percent of the heavyweights out there. Also Mir is in the top 5 heavyweights out there. He destroyed Nogueira. Nogueira may have been sick but then again Mir didn't have any trouble with him. If you dont know how the fight got on the UFC 100 card then you are a fucking moron. Dont say the whole shit that you like affliction and your a real mma fan because you watch something other than UFC. Give me a fuckin break UFC 100 is a stacked card and the two main events are amazing fights.
July 10, 2009 at 6:50 am
oh now all of a sudden mir is in the top 5. Reality check Mir got pummled by pedo pano and vera. do you guys think that after beating up a washed up nog and atoni hardonk who is not well rounded at all mir is at the top??
Face it when mir faces a Well rounded well conditioned fighter he does not do well. and dont even talk about Dan chirstensens washed up ass
July 10, 2009 at 7:03 am
One thing i Notice about Frank mir is that he is very good for like the first 2 or 3 minutes of the first round and than he wears out and doesnt have that killer drive anymore. Its like a Cheetah running after its prey and than after like 60 seconds it gets tired and gives up.
July 10, 2009 at 7:25 am
lesnar can beat 95% of the hw's all ready? maybe but its hard to say with only 2 wins in the ufc. and mir is ranked based on beating a sick nog before that he was not in the top 10 nor will he be soon. fedor is #1 and barnett is #2 if you agree with it or not ufc 100 is great but so is the affliction card.
Fedors is a homo
July 10, 2009 at 1:34 pm
I love all these people who think because they watch Affliction that they are real MMA fans. Also the whole thing were its cool to like Fedor and because you think he's best fighter ever your a hardcore fan. Your all fuckin stupid. Sorry I dont normally get on and write these comments but I couldn't help myself. You people are fucking stupid. Affliction card is better than 100…ha ha give me a fucking break. Oh boy good laugh people. Dont even reply to me because I'm not gonna check it again because I have a fucking life unlike you people.
July 10, 2009 at 2:17 pm
I would not say the biggest hw fight ever but it will be an excellent bout for sure. My problem lies in my innability to bring myself to send money to an organization that I don't feel deserves it. The fighters are the only thing that holds an affliction show together. Now yes we all tune in to see fighters but stay with me here. If you strip away a good fight from teh UFC you ares till left with an excellently produced show. The same can not be said for affliction. I am not a UFC fan but quality is quality and I would love to see these fighters with a company that actually has direction and someone who can speak affiliated with them in some way.
I may get together with some fellas and get it but the overall experience isnt the quality I believe we deserve

UFC gives a good show?
sorry but no, ask anyone who watched Pride and they will tell you.
Pride > UFC
in terms of a show and quality.
Affliction Card has the best fight out of the 2 cards.
UFC has the overall better card tho (JUST) with the UFC talent being so deep i think they are slacking well behind.
Vitor Belfort, is currently #2 in the 185lbs for me personally so always good to see him fight.
Gegard Mousasi is one of my fave fighters (will be p4p one day)
that being said.
Affliction events ARE better than 90% of the average UFC events. (UFC is slacking these days.)
best org for me right now is Bellator.
UFC needs to get rid of the octagon for me to be taken seriously as an MMA org. (too many Wrestlers in an octagon makes for unfair advantage… and a massive one at that.)
Mike Is GAY
July 10, 2009 at 10:43 pm
Vitor Belfort is a washed up has been.
Gegard Mousasi will never be p4p best fighter ever. Or even close. He has won a lot of fights but never been really tested.
You have no reason why Affliction is better than UFC other than its cooler to say.
Also you dont take UFC seriously. HAHAHA……if you cant take UFC seriously what organization can you take seriously. What are they going to do take the octagon away because of one unhappy fan. HAHA oh boy…you dont take the UFC seriously!
July 11, 2009 at 5:14 am
real mature… can't even use a name cos your just a like gay boy.
Affliction puts on ALL its talent at once UFC evens them out like shit to make you pay for shit events.
Vitor washed up? are you insane?!
Gegard Mousasi is great… and STILL young.
had no Tests? lol the kid fought Mark Hunt WELL out of his weight and dominated him.
right now the cage and judges (all favour wrestlers) means that if you have any wrestling skills + stand up you'll fly to the top without trying.
