Well, as has been mentioned in a post prior to mine, Affliction is muscling in on Dana's stomping ground. However i think there might be more to it than that. Dana has said previously that he can see MMA going the same way as boxing, where there are so many different promotions that the best guys dont get to fight each other, because of contract disputes etc. As we all know, this is *starting* to happen already. I can see his point too. We all want the best fighters to be able to compete vs each other to decide who is the best.
I'm just not sure how much of it is Dana's love for the sport, and how much is to do with his love of money.

Who ever thinks Affliction can afford to put this card on free TV is on dream street, Affliction has way to much to pay out in the way of fighter salaries. and obviously dont have the cash based on them asking there fighters to take pay cuts, the UFC is counterprogramming because they know Afflition is on the ropes and they are going in for the kill, they will counterprogram regardless of Affliction juggling the date.
