Oh, okay! I didn't know that! Thanks for the information!

Who backs Affliction? It's so expensive to get started and 1 or 2 bad shows can sink the ship real fast. I don't know why they don't do what Adrenaline did. They would cash in quite well without a lot of up front cost. I see the Oscar De La Hoya was wearing Affliction in his fight last weekend. That's some easy advertisement with a well known promotion company.

The MMA world is going to get over saturated with all these new companies out there and is going to cause a lot of parity between fighters and organizations.

Oscar De La Hoya doesnt bring in many people for Affliction as far as sales go Id be willing to bet, Boxing's audiance spans much older than MMA's and seeing as Affliction clothing is more aimed at that 18-35 demographic that MMA is hot in right now, Randy Couture I guarantee outsold De La Hoya 100-1 for Affliction, I think this is a really poor buisiness strategy for Affliction, I dont get why everyone wants to jump into the MMA game considering the UFC are the only ones making any money in it, they all want to jump in, pay higher salaries to try to attract fighters, non of this adds up and its just getting ridiculous.

People chase the money. Reguardless if they have no personal interest in the sport or not, they'll throw a stake in it. These people know that MMA will be here for a long time.

It goes back as far as time. People will pay money to see men fight. And now MMA is a beautiful hybrid of various styles. More versatile than any professional fighting that the american public has ever televised in history. That's why I beleive everyone is getting involved. The banning of Affliction was merely a move by EliteXC to refrain from promoting a different org.

Really though.....How many matches of that caliber are there without them having most of the guys from the UFC? Fedor vs Sylvie, Fedor vs. Couture. outside of that, nothing special to keep fans interested. Fedor vs Barnett. That's it as far as high caliber fights unless they could take a lot of talent away from UFc and WEC. Maybe even a few EXC guys too

Fatman2fighter has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I think I heard the Elite lost 38 million dollars its first year in buisness and they had some pretty good shows that sold out. The problem is that you have to pull a good gate on the PPV to make enough to be viable.

On that note a cbs deal might workout and I am a sucker I buy all these fricking shows from TKO to Elite to UFC. I am a frickin sucker and my satilite bill is like $250 a month my wife freaks constantly lol

Hey if you have the money why not? Can take it with you when you die.

As far as the banning goes. cant go promoting other promotions can they. Which with Elite i find funny since they are letting a few figheters fight in DREAM.
