It has just been learned that the original main event for the postponed “Day of Reckoning” will now be the main event for January’s Affliction event. The date and venue have yet to be determined, but we do know that it will be strictly an MMA event.
It was rumored that Affliction and Golden Boy Promotions were working on signing a main event boxing match to put alongside with an MMA card but both sides couldn’t come up with a boxing match that everyone agreed with.
MMARated spoke with Affliction Entertainment VP, Tom Atencio, who confirmed to them that Fedor Emelianenko will defend his WAMMA heavyweight title against Andrei Arlovski. “The Pitbull” is coming off of an impressive victory over Roy Nelson at “EliteXC: Heat,” while Emelianenko is coming off of an injury he suffered during his destruction of former UFC champion Tim Sylvia.
