Congrats to MMA Rated on breaking the story:
MMARated.com has learned that WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko will face Andrei Arlovski at the upcoming Affliction show tentatively scheduled for January 24th in Anaheim, Calif.
Affliction Entertainment VP Tom Atencio confirmed the news with us earlier today.
Atencio also said that the promotion will officially announce the date, location and main fights on the card sometime next week and that it will be an MMA-only card but still co-promoted with Golden Boy Promotions.
"We sat down with them and couldn't come up with a main event boxing match that everyone wanted," Atenco said.
January is going to be another crazy month for MMA. The most likely date for this show is January 24, sandwiched between two UFC shows.
