"Considering the magnitude of this fight, and the partnership between Affliction and Donald Trump, it seemed only fitting that the huge talent pool on the ‘Affliction Banned’ show should be seen by millions in New York’s Times Square. You know it’s a big show when you have a billboard on Broadway."

-- Tom Atencio, Vice President, Affliction, talks about the marquee billboard situated in Times Square in New York City for the upcoming "Banned" pay-per-view (PPV) event that is slated for the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on July 19. It's a star-studded show that will feature several of the best heavyweight mixed martial artists on the planet, including Fedor Emelianenko, Josh Barnett, Tim Sylvia, Andrei Arlovski, Pedro Rizzo, Ben Rothwell and more.
