All contestants competing in tomorrow’s Affliction:Banned card tipped the scales today at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. All of the fighters made their required weights, however the Alexeander Emeilianenko and Paul Buentello card was scrapped because Emelianenko was not able to meet his license requirments in time . The event will be headlined by former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia taking on the world’s consensus #1 ranked Fedor Emelianenko for the WAMMA Heavyweight title.
