    The upcoming Affliction: Day of Reckoning card is beginning to fill out as MMAWeekly.com has confirmed two more match-ups with company Vice President, Tom Atencio.

    Included on the card will be a welterweight showdown between two former Ultimate Fighting Championship competitors as Jay Hieron takes on Drew Fickett.

    Also slated for action in October are two of the best young prospects in the lightweight division as former International Fight League stand out, Chris Horodecki, returns to action to face the youngest competitor to ever step foot in the UFC, Dany Lauzon.

    Jay Hieron joins the Affliction promotion as the last and only ever IFL welterweight champion, who is also currently riding a 3 fight win streak. The bout against Fickett will be his first since defending his IFL title in April.

    For Fickett’s part, the fight with Hieron will hopefully help erase much of the controversy that has followed him for the past few months.

    The lightweight bout will showcase two of the best and youngest stars in the sport of MMA as both Horodecki and Lauzon have been competing basically since they were legal to do so.

    Atencio also shot down recent rumors that former UFC light heavyweight champion, Tito Ortiz, has been signed by the organization. He simply stated nothing has changed in the contract negotiations, and they don’t expect him to compete on the October show. http://www.mmaweekly.com/absolutenm/...6955&zoneid=13

    The Horodecki/Lauzon fight is going to be a great fight. I really don't know who I want to win because I like both of them a lot. They are both promising prospects and it will be an exciting fight.

    so far the card is

    Arlovski vs Barnette
    Matt Lindland vs some guy
    Nog lite vs some other guy
    Ben Rothwell vs Pedro Rizzo
    Chris Horodecki vs Dan lauzon
    Jay Hieron vs drew ficket

    Its not some super hw card like the first event but they still managed to put a card together that is better then the majority of other cards out there. Every fight seems pretty interesting lindland and nog are just going to walk over these guys which should be amusing.

    I want to see how rothwell does now and jay and chris's fights are pretty good match ups and look like they are gonna be pretty exciting. Main event is pretty decent to. Im going to be cheering for arlovski

    They were talking about him on Inside MMA Friday night and how he has fought like 10 times this year and that he's some sort of fighting machine :rofl:
