Coming off the heels of its first-ever show this past Saturday, Affliction will promote its second MMA on Oct. 11 in Las Vegas at the Thomas & Mack Center according to a report by Yahoo! Sports’ Kevin Iole.
According to Iole, Fedor Emelianenko will defend his WAMMA heavyweight title against Andrei Arlovski in the night’s main event.
Iole indicated that Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio was unavailable for comment but quoted Thomas & Mack Center director Daren Libonati as a source for his report.
Fedor claimed the then-vacant WAMMA heavyweight title from Tim Sylvia during this past Saturday’s “Banned” event in Anaheim following a submission just 36 seconds into round 1.
Arlovski was victorious on the card as well, knocking out former IFL heavyweight Ben Rothwell in the third round.
