Affliction : Banned

Affliction: Banned was a mixed martial arts event co-promoted by Affliction Clothing and
Adrenaline MMA.[2] It took place on July 19, 2008 at the Honda Center in Anaheim,
California. The card at Banned featured many of the top MMA heavyweights.

The main event was the return of PRIDE World Heavyweight Championship Fedor
Emelianenko fighting against former two-time UFC Heavyweight Champion] Tim Sylvia.
[3] Emelianenko submitted Sylvia thirty-six seconds into the first round to win in convincing
fashion.

After the fight, Randy Couture entered the ring and Emelianenko expressed his desire to
fight Couture next. The event saw victories by former UFC Heavyweight Champions
Andrei Arlovski and Josh Barnett, with Barnett avenging an earlier loss to Pedro Rizzo,
and by former UFC Light-heavyweight Champion Vitor Belfort. Former UFC standout
Matt Lindland and former Pride FC standout Antonio Rogerio Nogueira won.

Megadeth performed at the event. The announcer was Michael Buffer.[4] The disclosed
total fighter payroll for the event was $3,321,000.[5]
[edit] Broadcasting

The one hour undercard was broadcast on Fox Sports Network and The Fight Network
while the main fight card was broadcast live on pay-per-view.[6] The UFC scheduled
UFC Fight Night: Silva vs. Irvin on Spike TV at the same time as the Affliction event in an
attempt to diminish the PPV audience for Banned.[7]
