Fedor Emelianenko vs Andrei Arlovski Affliction fight slated for October 11

fedor emelianenko vs andrei arlovski affliction
Fresh off what many feel to be a major success with its first-ever show on July 19 dubbed, "Banned," Affliction MMA will go for an encore in the backyard of the promotion that "banned" it in the first place.

Indeed, Affliction has its sights set on Las Vegas, Nevada, on October 11 for its next show, according to Yahoo!Sports.com. And anyone who's anyone knows that "Sin City" is UFC turf -- the organization that forbid its fighters to don the clothing company's apparel at its events.

But who really cares about that because the same report confirms that former UFC champion Andrei Arlovski will challenge the last man to hold the Pride FC heavyweight strap, Fedor Emelianenko, likely for the Russian's newly-won heavyweight WAMMA title in the main event of the evening.

It's a dream match that most fans have fantasized about for years.

And perhaps the only thing that can top that news is what ace the UFC pulls from its sleeve to once again counter this latest bold move. Perhaps it once again includes UFC Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva.

This is getting good. Real good.
