Affliction Entertainment's next event, dubbed "Day of Reckoning," will take place Oct. 4 and feature a main event between Andrei Arlovski (13-5) and Josh Barnett (23-5), according to afflictionclothing.com.
Barnett replaces top-ranked heavyweight and WAMMA title-holder Fedor Emelianenko, who was scratched from the pay-per-view event due to a hand injury.
MMAjunkie.com couldn't immediately reach Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio for confirmation, and messages left with Emelianenko's management weren't returned.
Former UFC heavyweight champions Andrei Arlovski (13-5) and Josh Barnett (23-5) will collide at Affliction: âDay of Reckoningâ at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on October 11.
WAMMA Heavyweight Champion Fedor Emelianenko was originally expected to defend his title against the âPitbullâ in the main event; however, a hand injury sustained in his win over Tim Sylvia will apparently keep the Russian off the card.
Arlovski and Barnett were victorious in their Affliction MMA debuts at âBannedâ from the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on July 19. Arlovski stopped Ben Rothwell via third round technicak knockout (strikes) and Barnett exacted revenge against Pedro Rizzo with second round knockout.
Both fighters are riding impressive win streaks â Arlovski has four straight and âThe Baby Face Assassinâ has got three to his credit. Itâs a monster showdown between arguably two of the top five heavyweight fighters in the world. And it will likely determine a number one contender to challenge for Emelianenkoâs strap when he is fit to return.
In addition to the main event between Arlovski and Barnett, middleweights Matt Lindland and Vitor Belfort are also expected to clash at the promotions encore event, which is slated to be available on pay-per-view (PPV).
