Affliction VP Tom Atencio Believes Station Casinos Will Go out of Business Early Next Year

Edited and fronted by Luke Thomas.

MMA Rated has the scoop:

Interestingly enough, Affliction co-founder Todd Beard has recently surfaced to voice his displeasure with the UFC, most notably on a recent appearance on "The Scott Ferrall Show."

"They threaten us personally, which is hilarious," Beard said. "Dana White, Lorenzo Fertita, they are tough guys. They're old school mafia guys, or wannabe old school mafia guys that their grandfather built their business and they are nothing. They’re nothing." 

When asked about Beard's comments, Atencio seemingly shrugged them off.

"I will always do my fighting in the ring but my partner has just had it with them," Atencio said.

During his interview with Ferrall, Beard mentioned that Zuffa co-founders, Lorenzo and Frank Fertitta, are experiencing some financial trouble with their Palace Station Casino properties.

"They put their business five billion dollars in debt," Beard said in the interview."They’re in big touble right now. They are going to go out of business in February. Guaranteed. Station Casinos will go out of business in February for sure."

Atencio did not refute this claim.

"They want to talk about us being done by January," Atencio said. "Well, I will guarantee you that their Statino Casinos will be out of business by February...I have all the proof I need."

Of course, there are two sides to every story but an effort to get a response from someone at Zuffa was unsuccessful.
