Affliction 3: Not Fedor vs Barnett and Free

According to the "Carmichael Dave Show" on CBS Radio via Sherdog.com:

I will be reporting on my nightly show tonight and the national show tomorrow evening on CBS that I have spoken with a highly placed source with Affliction who has confirmed the following:

- Affliction is going ahead with plans to have their next show go against UFC 100 in July

- Fedor and Barnett WILL both be on the card, but WILL NOT be fighting each other

- The card will be shown for free in its entirety, network TBA

- No confirmation on whether or not this is the final show for Affliction, but the quote given to me was:

" We arent stupid. We arent bringing a knife to a gun fight. This card will be STACKED from top to bottom."

When I countered that with that statement made, a ton of pressure will be put on Affliction to find a favorable opponent for Fedor (since it will be a natural letdown that it isnt Barnett), the quote was:

"The fans will have ZERO problem with Fedor's opponent"

In other words, the old "one door closes, another opens" philosophy.

Stay tuned, and you can always listen to my show from 9-midnight PST weekdays, and the MMA only program this Saturday from 8-9pm PST at Northern California's Sports Station KHTK - Homepage

Stay tuned...

So who's going to fight Fedor - Belfort, Ortiz, Overeem, Werdum?
