    (y) to Bobby. Dont kill your career for cash dude. I really think that if you continue to improve, you could give Brock a run for his money in UFC

    Affliction should pull the plug on this show. Their possible replacements are Vitor, Fabricio Werdum and Bobby Lashley. Lashley is in no way shape or form ready for Fedor. Werdum needs A LOT of marketing to non-"hardcore" fans to be a viable challenger. Vitor is a middleweight. He was a heavyweight ... when he was 19. Plus, they lose a Belfort/Jorge Santiago fight (the battle of the best non-UFC middleweights) if Vitor moves to the main event.

    Can't pull the show...too much invested already. Do agree though that anyone they throw in there gets killed. Atleast Lashley will be a money maker, but he's smart if he says no. Too bad Kimbo signed a TUF/UFC deal. He woulda did it for sure and that would have made money and we would have gotten to see Kimbo killed in the ring...all pluses.

    Trivia question: What 1 man was responsible for 1 organization folding up shop, and another getting the greatest news it could ever hope for?

    Answer: Josh Barnett

    Affliction Trilogy cancelled, probably causing them to fold, making Fedor a free agent with really no one else to pay him except the UFC. Dana White literally just creamed himself

    Fedor coming to the UFC is probably the one thing that would make me buy a PPV.

    He's a bad man.
