Affliction Entertainment announced that their special musical guest for their second MMA promotion will be heavy metal legend, Ozzy Osbourne. Osbourne is one of many musicians that are under contract with Affliction Clothing.

Affliction: Day of Reckoning” is set to take place on October 11th at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main event of the night will feature an exciting bout between former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski taking on Josh Barnett.

Megadeth was the special musical guest that Affliction had perform at their debut event, “Banned,” in July. On that event’s format, the band played at the start of the Pay-Per-View portion of the show, then played a couple of more times throughout the night.

It was rumored that Osbourne was to perform at “Banned,” however both sides were unable to finalize a deal in time. Osbourne has sold over 100 million albums worldwide, and has collected numerous Grammy awards along the way.
