“Affliction: Banned” suffered its first casualty today as Sherdog has reported that the scheduled undercard fight between Aleksander Emelianenko and Paul Buentello has been scraped by the California State Athletic Commission. According to the report, Emelianenko didn’t meet all of his licensing requirements.
Buentello will instead face 42 year old Gary Goodrich (23-16). Goodrich is 6-3 in his past nine fights with wins over Dan Bobish and Don Frye.
All fights will be aired in their entirety, with the undercard airing on Fox Sports Net and the main card airing on Pay-Per-View.
Make sure to come back tomorrow night for live play-by-play coverage from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
