The Secret's Out: Fedor's the Best MMA Has
(msn.foxsports.com)
ANAHEIM, Calif. - Going into Saturday's Affliction fight card — billed with characteristic modesty as "the greatest MMA show of All-time" — Fedor Emelianenko was cast as The Russian. There had been reams of copy citing "Rocky" villain Ivan Drago as his spiritual ancestor.

Joe Riggs Headlines August Rage in the Cage
(mmaontap.com)
Former Rage in the Cage heavyweight and middleweight title holder Joe “Diesel” Riggs will make his return to the promotion next month, headlining a scheduled event on August 26th at the Toyota Center in Prescott, Arizona. Riggs replaced fellow longtime veteran Edwin Dewees, who was slated to fight in the night’s main event, but was granted contractual relief by the organization to challenge former PRIDE standout Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at this weekend’s Affliction: Banned event. Riggs will take on Matt Dempsey, who has not fought professional since March of 2005 when he submitted Troy King at a Courage Fighting Championships event.

Great new Alexander Emelianenko interview.
(sherdog.com)
"I'm ready. It doesn't matter with who or where. On foot or on horseback. With maces or poleaxes. To fight. To first blood or to death. It doesn't matter, I'm ready to fight." -- Aleksander Emelianenko (Pictures) Living in the shadow of a big brother isn't easy. When you are in the same profession and he's more accomplished and better known, it's hard to stand in the spotlight unobstructed, as your own man. Side by side, the achievements that you've worked your whole life for, that you've gone through hell for in order to become a better person are less dazzling, less impressive when compared to his. You have less say in your fighting future, less media attention when he's caught in a perpetual avalanche of flash bulbs and microphones. You're fighting on the televised undercard when he's headlining the pay-per-view.

New BABALU write up (Guy has had a rough year)
(mmatraining.com)
Renato “Babalu” Sobral will step into the Affliction ring Saturday night looking to get a big win over Mike Whitehead. Over the last year, controversy has surrounded Sobral, but the former UFC title contender looks to put that all behind him Saturday night and come away with a huge victory. In 2002 Babula lost by a Head Kick KO to Chuck Liddell at UFC 40, but would go on to win the next 10 in a row. His win stream would set up a title shot rematch with the “Iceman” in 2006. Babula was beaten once again. Liddell was running through everyone, so the loss did nothing to hurt his career.

Fedor slams UFN 14 card
(punch.freedomblogging.com)
From the OC Register: Here is what Fedor said about the UFC putting on a show the same night to counter-program against Affliction: “M-1 Global and Affliction have come together to make one of the best MMA cards in the history of the sport. So compared to the card that is going on the same day, it doesn’t really compare at all. I don’t think it is really going to make that much of a difference. I’m confident our fans, the MMA fans, are going to understand that and realize the difference between the two shows.” Check out the entire interview (with audio) here:

MIKE PYLE WANTS A BIG 'SMASH' AT AFFLICTION
(mmaweekly.com)
Over the last few years Mike Pyle has been on the threshold of breaking through to being one of the top welterweight fighters in the world on many occasions. Unfortunately, losses at critical junctions have kept him from doing so. Forced to bounce around from promotion to promotion during that same time period, Pyle’s drive to make it to the top has yet to diminish in the least as he continues to strive towards his goal. After two impressive performances earlier this year in Canada and Japan, Pyle returns stateside for the first ever Affliction show as part of one of the most stacked cards of the year on July 19 in Anaheim, Calif. Scheduled to take on up and comer JJ Ambrose, he is excited to be back, working on his ever present quest for greatness.

FRANK TRIGG RETURNS AT SENGOKU 4
(mmaweekly.com)
World Victory Road on Tuesday confirmed an August 24 bout between Frank Trigg and Makoto Takimoto at Sengoku IV. The event takes place at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The bout marks the first action for Trigg since he defeated fellow UFC veteran Edwin Dewees at HDNet Fights in December of last year. Since departing the UFC in late 2005, he has fought sparingly, but made it to the semi-final round of the Rumble on the Rock Welterweight Grand Prix and held the ICON Sport middleweight title for a brief period. Takimoto is an Olympic Judo gold medalist with little mixed martial arts experience, although he does have victories over former UFC champion Murilo Bustamante and Dong Sik Yoon on his resume. His last bout was a loss to Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos in March of this year at the first Sengoku event. The only other bout officially announced for Sengoku IV is Peter Graham vs. Moise Rimbon. Former Pride lightweight champion Takanori Gomi is confirmed to be participating on the card, but an opponent has yet to be named.

TOKORO VS YAMAZAKI ADDED TO DREAM 5
(mmaweekly.com)
Hideo Tokoro has been added to the fifth installment of Dream, which will be held on July 21 at the Osaka Castle Hall in Japan. The “Cinderella Boy” is slated to face Grabaka fighter Takeshi Yamazaki. The fight will be held at the featherweight limit. Tokoro is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over newcomer Darren Uyenoyama at Dream 4. The match-up was highly considered the most entertaining fight of the event. Takeshi Yamazaki recently made a successful Dream debut, defeating Pancrase champion Shoji Maruyama in the opening bout at Dream 3.
