    Default Affliction Folds.....


    After promoting two critically acclaimed but financially disastrous mixed martial arts cards, Affliction on Friday first canceled its pay-per-view card scheduled for Aug. 1 and then opted to get out of the promotional business, Yahoo! Sports has learned. The company and the Ultimate Fighting Championship are expected to release a statement sometime on Friday in which it is announced that Affliction will cease operations as a promoter and that its clothing division will become a UFC sponsor.

    Only thing I know about Affliction is those "Tough Guy" shirts people wear.

    This sucks!
    It looks like UFC will get what they want, and that is a total monopoly on the MMA PPV.

    Personally, I think this is a bad thing for MMA.

    I agree Chad, I live in Vegas and train with some fighters, and this is not good for them. Very unfortunate.
