Affliction Adds Another Solid Fight to "Day of Reckoning"

Welterweights Jay Hieron and Drew Fickett have agreed to fight at Affliction "Day of Reckoning" on October 11. In the past week Affliction has gotten back on track by securing this match-up and Chris Horodecki vs Dan Lauzon. Neither features high profile fighters, but each represents an intriguing match-up for diehard MMA fans. Most times when an MMA promotion is putting on a show, be it local or big, they go for a circus setting with "big" names instead of true talent. Affliction is doing the opposite with their second offering. Fans will see talent vs talent. Each fight will be a chance for the participants to prove to the world they belong in a mainstream MMA organization.

Here is how the "Day of Reckoning" fight card looks so far.

Andrei Arlovski vs Josh Barnett
Matt Lindland vs ________
Jay Hieron vs Drew Fickett
Chris Horodecki vs Dan Lauzon
Vladimir Matyushenko vs Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Pedro Rizzo vs Ben Rothwell
Roy Nelson vs Paul Buentello

No way I'm buying it unless they add a big fight.
