Kevin Iole has the scoop.
Later on Friday, Affliction opted to get out of the promoting business and, in a joint statement with the Ultimate Fighting Championship, announced it would become a sponsor of the UFC. The fate of the fighters under contract with Affliction is not known yet.
I don’t want to get too excited about Fedor coming to the UFC, but as of now it seems closer to happening than ever before. While you’re at it Dana go ahead and get Vitor and Mousasi too.
