I actually liked the Affliction card a lot more when I only knew the names of the fighters and not the match-ups. For instance, when I heard Babalu and Nog were on the card, I assumed they'd be fighting each other. I'm really excited to see Fedor-Tim, but everything else on this card (with the possible exception of AA-Rothwell, which I don't actually expect to be very competitive) reeks of tune-up fights that market stars at the expense of competition. I'm still interested in the card but, I don't have the same nostalgic feeling to see guys like Buentello, White, and Rizzo to get killed.
I'm not exactly dying to see UFC 86 either. Jackson/Griffin might be good, but Griffen/Aurelio is the only other fight on the card that does it for me.
I wouldn't pay money to see either, but if Affliction is on HDNet I'd definitely give it the nod.
