    With Donald’s extensive sports background I am sure this will be an awesome partnership.

    just becuase donald trump’s name is on something doens’t mean he will help financially or that it will work =)

    i.e his mortgage company failed before the market.

    No surprise here yet, unless Tito DOESN’T end up announcing his deal or affiliation with Affliction . The Donald liked Tito on the show and said so.
    This sounds good, finally a viable home for top talent when discarded and disrespected by UFC.
    Trump knows how to make things work. Jenna’s got some clout as wel,l so once Tito is in things will get even more interesting.

    “No surprise here yet, unless Tito DOESN’T end up announcing his deal or affiliation with Affliction .”

    Not sure why Tito would sign with Affliction. He does have a competing clothing line. Bottom line for Tito is always the $$ and something tells me that Affliction wouldn’t be approving of him not wearing their clothing in a fight. He also just stated that of all the offers he’s received so far, the UFC’s is still the best with the most $$.

    “any news on Arlovski?”

    its pretty strange with him and affliciton…word circled behind the scenes a bit…then blogs starting leaking things…a few fighters have said a few things…

    we keep hearing he is signing soon and then nothing comes of it. Maybe the UFC is about to pull him back? Who knows but you would think we would know for sure sooner than later.

    i can hear it now, Dana ” YOUR FIRED”. in all seriousness though, i can see this affliction thing panning out the way the ufc and pride did, in a few years affliction buys out the ufc and dismantles it. hopefully not but it sure would be interesting… see ya elitexc… unless, hmmmm… what if there ends up being no exclusivity between the other orgs. like in the ufc…. cant wait to see what happens
