October 11th will be Affliction’s second card and they are trying their best to put on another good card. Just this past week the signing of IFL welterweight champ Jay Hieron bolstered Affliction’s welterweight divison, but he did not have a credible opponent. Now it seems he will fight former UFC fighter Drew Fickett. Fickett has been in many organizations and has been highly criticized lately for his ethics in taking fights in other promotions. Anyways, this should be an interesting fight and should help a card that is sub par at best. The Affliction 2: Day of Reckoning card will be headlined by Josh Barnett vs. Andrei Arlovski. The card will also feature Roy Nelson vs. Paul Buentello, Ben Rothwell vs. Pedro Rizzo, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Vladimir Matyushenko, and Chris Horodecki vs. Dan Lauzon. The bout between Matt Lindland and Vitor Belfort fell apart due to Belfort’s injury, and the bout between Babalu and Tito Ortiz seems to have fallen apart also.
