I am now in charge of doing pick em for non UFC events, and not only did Affliction Trilogy get canceled, so did the entire fight promotion.
I guess Josh Barnett is to blame for this mess.
Who knows what will become of him now, UFC won't take him back, and I can't see Strikeforce taking a chance on him.
Looks like Barnett will be fighting in Japan from now on.
UFC was always my favorite(well, I did like Pride better), but Affliction did have some talented fighters other than Fedor.
Looks like I'll only be needed for Dream and Strikeforce events.
I'm a little pissed about this whole deal.
First the fight is canceled because of Josh Barnett bombing a drug test, and Vitor Belfort was then scheduled to fight Fedor, I don't know what happened there, and Jeff Monson called Fedor out, but that wasn't good enough.
The Sobral-Mouassi(spell) fight was main event caliber, as was the originally scheduled Belfort fight.
It was a good card wasted because of Josh Barnett.
And come to find out Affliction is going back to sponsor UFC fighters.
I guess none of us really expected Affliction to last long.
Hopefully we will see a Fedor vs Overeem fight on Strikeforce.
