Affliction’s second event will take place on October 11th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada and will feature WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko taking on former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski in the main event, according to Yahoo! Sports.
The promotion is just days removed from its first effort, Affliction “Banned”, which took place on Saturday, July 19th, at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California and featured Emelianenko defeating former UFC champion Tim Sylvia in just 36-seconds to claim the WAMMA title. Arlovski defeated IFL standout Ben Rothwell via third-round knockout at “Banned”.
The October 11th event is expected to be officially announced next week.
