UFC vs Affliction ??

Hi there,
I`m a newbie in these sports, I`ve just bought the latest UFC DVD and I`m quite confused. I don`t know what`s with all this stuff `bout UFC and Affliction. Are they friends anymore ? Could you please teach me more about that ?

The short story is:

The UFC used to advertise Affliction clothing.

Affliction makes MMA Promotion rivalling the UFC.

Dana White directly opposes Affliction.

Oh, and by the way, there's an introduction section if you want to introduce yourself to other forum members .

Later on Friday, Affliction opted to get out of the promoting business and, in a joint statement with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, announced it would become a sponsor of the UFC. The fate of the fighters under contract with Affliction is not known yet.

Well... think about it, all the Affliction fighters are out of contract now. There could be a TUF season with the Affliction guys fighting for a UFC contract...

It would be an interesting thing to see Affliction and UFC merged. In this way, the UFC fighters can fight with the best of the best and improve their skills. If they keep fighting between one another, they`ll end up bad. It`s also good for the spectators to see more interesting fights between highly skilled fighters
