Andrei Arlovski has confirmed his next bout will be against Josh Barnett at Affliction 2.
The winner of this bout will more than likely face WAMMA Heavyweight champion, Fedor Emelianenko.
The reason for Fedor’s absence is due to yet another broken hand and Affliction probably doesn’t want to oversaturate their show with Fedor.
Barnett and Arlovski is a very interesting fight that could easily go either way. It’s one of the fights that MMA fans have been waiting for since the UFC vs. Pride was first discussed.
Give the striking edge to Arlovski and the grappling edge to Barnett.
Affliction 2 is set to go down on October 11th in Las Vegas.
