Which card is better?

I was wondering. With the new promotion Affliction holding their new event, which card do you think will be better. Ufc's or Afflictions.

UFC 86

Main Card Bouts:
-Quinton Jackson (#1 Light Heavyweight in the World)* vs. Forrest Griffin (#6 Light Heavyweight in the World)*
-Josh Koscheck (#4 Welterweight in the World)* vs. Chris Lytle
-Joe Stevenson (#9 Lightweight in the World)* vs. Gleison Tibau
-Tyson Griffin vs. Marcus Aurelio
-Patrick Cote vs. Ricardo Almeida

Preliminary Bouts:
-Justin Buchholz vs. Corey Hill
-Melvin Guillard vs. Dennis Siver
-Ben Saunders vs. Jared Rollins
-Cole Miller vs. Jorge Gurgel
-Justin McCully vs. Gabriel Gonzaga


Affliction "Banned" card
Bouts Scheduled to Air on Pay-Per-View:
-Fedor Emelianenko vs. Tim Sylvia
-Josh Barnett vs. Pedro Rizzo
-Matt Lindland vs. Fabio Negao
-Renato "Babalu" Sobral vs. Mike Whitehead
-Ben Rothwell vs. Andre Arlovski

Bouts Scheduled to Air on Fox Sports Net:
-Aleksander Emelianenko vs. Paul Buentello
-Trenell "Savant" Young vs. Mark Hominick

Preliminary Bouts:
-Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Vernon "Tiger" White
-Justin Levens vs. Ray Lazama
-Mike Pyle vs. Brett Cooper
-J.J. Ambrose vs. Patrick Speight



I personally think Affliction has a MUCH better card. This is also only their first event. Do you think they will continue growing bigger?? is this UFC'S biggest rival right now? I sure think so.

Actually, the July card is going to be their second event.

They have a lot invested, and some big names. I think it could do well, as long as they keep the big HW's.

To me it isn't even close, Affliction, hands down.

And that's WITH 4 of my favs on the UFC card (Almeida, Rampage, Aurelio, and Tyson)...even with them BANNED kills it.

Man that Affliction card is sick. Three of those fights could be headliners, but instead are on one card. Great card. But I want to see Rampage defend his title.

I think Affliction does have a much better card than UFC 86, no argument there. But will they be able to consistently be able to out out these amazing cards? only time will tell....

I think Affliction isn't going to be as good as people are making it out to be.

Sobral, Lindland, and Arlovski should win there fights easily.

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.



TEAM LORD:
1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
2. Nate Marquardt
3. Goran Reljic
4. Amir Saddolah

RANKING: TBA
TOTAL POINTS: +TBA
