“Affliction Banned” on Closed Circuit TV Across The Street From UFC Fight Night 14

Affliction \"Banned\" FightersDueling MMA events will be shown within walking distance of each other July 19 for fight fans in Las Vegas as Affliction Entertainment presents “Affliction Banned” on closed circuit television at the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino, directly across the street from where UFC’s Fight Night will be broadcast at the Palm Hotel and Casino.

The “Affliction Banned” pay-per-view event, featuring the WAMMA heavyweight championship fight between the most lethal MMA heavyweight of all-time, Russian M1 superstar legend Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko (27-1), and former UFC heavyweight champion Tim “The Maine-iac” Sylvia (24-4), will be broadcast live from Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

Fans at the Gold Coast will watch more than four hours or world-class mixed-martial-arts action, starting at 5 PM/PT with a live one-hour telecast of “Affliction Live,” featuring Fedor’s brother, Aleksander “The Grim Reaper” Emelianenko (13-3) versus Paul “The Headhunter” Buentello (23-10), followed by the exclusive presentation of “Affliction Banned.”

“Affliction Banned,” presented by Affliction Entertainment, arguably is the greatest MMA event ever, headlined by Fedor vs. Sylvia and powerfully supported by four other incredible bouts: former UFC® heavyweight title-holder Andrei “The Pitbull” Arlovski (12-5) faces IFL® titlist “Big” Ben Rothwell (29-5), Josh “The Baby Faced Assassin” Barnett (21-5) fights stateside for the first time in two years in a grudge match against the only opponent to ever knock him out — Brazilian strongman Pedro “The Rock” Rizzo (16-7); three-time All-American wrestler Mike Whitehead (20-5) battles Brazilian sensation Renato “Babalu” Sobral (29-7); 2000 Olympic Wrestling Silver Medalist and Oregon House of Representative candidate, Matt “The Law” Lindland (20-5), meets Brazilian favorite Fabio “Negao” Nascimento (8-3).
