    Lashley says he won't do it.

    Affliction might as well save a few bucks and just shut down the promotion now. At least that way they won't have to overpay all of their fighters on a PPV that noone is going to buy.

    He's out of strikeforce because of a hand injury. He won't be a replacement.

    Sherdog's Loretta Hunt is reporting that the replacements being considered are Vitor Belfort or Bobby Lashley....

    Sounds like it will be Vitor. I wonder if they will stick with that fight or actively try to find a heavyweight opponent.

    Lets say Fedor crushes Vitor..is Dana still as interested in bringing him back to the UFC?

    Good Choice. On the plus side they could convince Jose to do it for like 5 grand.

    Dana should call Atencio and offer up Brock for 5 million and 75% of ppv revenue just to break his balls.

    Gregard is a much better fight to make that Vitor. Maybe they are worried that he could win the fight and is relatively unknown to US fans.

    I know its rumored that Tito has resigned with the UFC. If that is the case I bet he is kicking himself in the ass right now. That would probably be a good fight for Affliction to make from a PPV perspective let alone on short notice.

    Tito would have been the most ideal match up for Affliction and Fedor and everyone who dislikes Tito.

    Tito vs Fedor with 11 days notice sells a shit ton more PPVs that Fedor vs Barnett.

    Does Affliction promote these events anywhere? I haven't seen anything around here. I know for the 2nd event they aired a few shitty commercials a few days before the event, but that is all I have ever seen them do.

    offtopic, but I just read up on Overeem's hand injury, which he just re-aggravated, forcing him out of the Werdum bout...

    :rofl:

    I would not want to fight the Overeems :noes:

    Bobby Lashley:

    "I don't know if I would want it right now. Since the last fight, I haven't really been into training again," he said. "That fight is next week. That would be something I would really have to take a look at. To just jump in there probably wouldn't be the smartest thing for me right now. A lot of people would say that might be a money fight. They figure, 'If we give him enough money, will he do it?' That's what people tend to look at. I don't want to get into fighting for the money so much right now.”


    What kind of BULLSHIT is that? You don't turn down the opportunity to have a career making fight like that. Even if he lost it wouldn't damage his reputation that much. How can you say you haven't been into training that much lately? This guy is a joke!

    Didn't UFC run a bit about Belfort at the last event? They'd really have to sign him if he went out and beat fedor. on the other hand, fedor would probably go out and destroy him, and that bit backfires on the ufc.

    Belfort is way more dangerous for Fedor than Barnett. Belfort is the kind of striker it would take to beat Fedor. Not saying it would be likely to happen but stylistically Belfort is more dangerous. I think Affliction has a BIG problem.
