UFC 86 for one reason:

They are showcasing MORE THAN ONE weight division. I mean those are great HW names...but I would rather see a more evenly spread out weight divisions on a card.

"I assure you, whatever the others promise to do, when it comes to the showdown, they won't be there... "

I am not interested in seeing Pedro Rizzo fight anymore, but Barnett is going to be fun.

Sylvia v Fedor is a huge ME and is unreal.

But I think 86 is going to have the fights that we'll actually talk about a month after the event. Forrest v Rampage is a huge ME in it's own right. Two great LW fights that will be entertaining as shit, and Cote v Almeida is gonna be the goods.

But, Banned probably takes it via name recognition.
I agree here, I don't think Affliction is going to be as good and is getting more credit because of Fedor there are only three fights on the main card that interests me on the Affliction card and it is Sylvia/Fedor, Barnett/Rizzo, and Arlovski/Rothwell. Every fight on the main card of UFC 86 interests me so that is why I am choosing it.

I have to go with Affliction, as I want to see every fight on that card. Rogerio vs White is too good of a fight to be a pre-lim, but oh well, I'm not complaining, this is still a great card. I bet Aleks vs Buentello ends up being the FOTN.

Fedor is fighting a ranked HW, and a guy who could pose problems for him. He's actually challenging himself! This, alone, makes it better than UFC 86.

Affliction for sure, although they are playing all thier big names at once....whereas the UFC will continue to put on a quality card a dozen times a year.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.

Affliction, tremendous name value and they have a heavyweight division that puts the UFC's to shit. With all this talent, you hope they don't end up like the WFA and put on a good show. But I predict that UFC 86 will pull in more money

Does anybody know if this is going to be in a ring or a cage? And will the show's production not be decorated like an ugly t shirt?

Affliction is far superior to any card I have seen in a while. Nogueira, the Emelinanenko brothers, Linland, Barnette, Sylvia and Rizzo, Babalu, Rothwell and Arlovski. This is one of the only cards I would actually be incredibly pissed if I missed any fight, including the prelims.

On a side note though, wouldn't it have been great if they got little Nog to fight VOLK HAN. Thats a jizz worth fight right there.
