Head to Head

The news keeps getting worse for Affliction. First, their supposed partner Golden Boy Promotions scheduled a major boxing match for the same night as "Day of Reckoning" (and only 30 miles away). That was bad enough. Now word has come out Dana White and his cronies will air a replay of UFC 91 "Couture vs Lesnar" on Spike TV that night also. Affliction's first PPV in July faced similar competition when it went head to head with UFC 84 "Ill Will". The ratings for "Ill Will" were better than expected, so I'm guessing UFC 91, which is a much better card, will do quite well.

It might be a good time to sell those "Day of Reckoning" tickets on StubHub. The Affliction Death Watch remains set at one week from today.

Is there a worse situation for a PPV?

Same night as a big fight
Same night as a free replay of the UFC's highest rated PPV in years
