Matt Lindland booked for July 19 Affliction show

"Matt Lindland booked for July 19 Affliction show
by MMAjunkie.com Staff [mmajunkie-staff] on Apr 21, 2008 at 9:39 am in - News -
Highly ranked middleweight Matt Lindland (20-5) will next fight at Affliction's debut show, which takes place July 19.

Lindland made the announcement on Friday's edition of "Inside MMA" on HDNet.

Affliction, which recently announced its intentions to enter the fight-promotion business after building a popular clothing brand, will likely host a Fedor Emelianenko vs. Tim Sylvia main event at the show.

Lindland didn't mention an opponent for the fight but mentioned Murilo Bustamante and David Terrell as possibilities.

Lindland, who's currently running for the Oregon House of Representatives, will fight for the first time in 15 months when he debuts for Affliction. He last fought Fedor Emelianenko -- who fights two weight classes above Lindland -- at an April 2007 BodogFIGHT event. Lindland suffered a first-round submission loss.

It was just his second loss in his past 11 fights, which has included stops in the UFC, Cage Rage, and the International Fight League.

The July 19 Affliction show is expected to take place at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, and will likely air on HDNet. A number of top-tier fighters have been rumored for the event, though Emelianenko, Sylvia and Lindland appear to be the only locks at this point."

Man I hope this is confirmed soon to take place in Dallas as I'll be able to drive to it. This card is looking better and better.

Your thoughts?

Sounds good. He needs to start fighting regularly again. If it is Terrell he will clearly pull out of the fight and Lindland will fight someone else. I would like it to be Terrell though and I would like to see Lindland get revenge on Terrell.

I would like to see Terrell take the fight (and not pull out) too.

But the last result I'd want would be Lindland getting revenge. I want to see Terrell knock his block off again. Lindland isn't even a top 10 MW right now in my opinion.

I'm not a fan of Lindland, can you tell?
