Although the second Affliction show is still over a month away, future plans include a third show that will most likely take place in January of February 2009. One fight that Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio is looking at is one that some fans have been talking about for quite some time.
"In terms of fighters we are looking at Jerome LeBanner, he is interested in doing MMA and apparently him and Tim Sylvia have some history between them so that is something that we are looking at right now."
My memory of it is kind of hazy, but as far as the background to this fight goes, the short version is that Le Banner called out Sylvia when he was champion, and again after the first Arlovski fight, with Tim brushing him off both times. To say JLB is a little over the hill would be an understatement, but he is no stranger to fighting larger opponents and I think Sylvia would be foolish to try and trade blows with him.
