This is going to be a hell of a fight.
Aleksander Emelianenko will fight Paul Buentello at Affliction's debut event July 19 in Anaheim, Calif., the promotion announced Tuesday.
Emelianenko, the younger brother of Fedor Emelianenko, has won four straight bouts. He holds a record of 13-3, with wins over Sergei Kharitonov, Assuerio Silva and Pawel Nastula.
Buentello, 25-10, had also won four straight before Alistair Overeem defeated him in Strikeforce last November.
Affliction also announced the signing of Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. The brother of UFC interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Rogerio is 13-3 in MMA. He fought most recently in February, stopping Todd Gouwenberg in the second round of a Hardcore Championship Fighting bout in Canada.
