View Full Version : Lil D's Affliction tale: Nut cruncher, Rain, and Cold

Before I start my tale, I have to say this was a great night of fights. The undercards didn't disappoint, the KOs were brutal, and some of my favorite fighters didn't fail to impress.

Now onward to the story. :D

I am not much of a morning person, I don't mind getting up early if I have to, but I prefer to sleep in on the weekends. My Dad wanted us to be out of the house at 10, and I awakened at 8:50. And the fights started at 4. :mellow: But everything went smoothly, and we were out on the road at 11. Luckily we left early because we hit some patches of rain that caused the traffic to slow down. Even with the rain we managed to get to Anahiem early and I could work on some hmk.

Now what I enjoy so much about getting to a venue early is seeing how skanky and sleezy some women are going to dress. Now mind you it was freakin cold and wet. It wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't for the wind. And I spied a chick that would have been a Kodak moment. She was wearing these bright blood red pants that were so tight, you could see what kind of underwear she was wearing. :scared0015: A black thong. :sick: That was oober nasty. Thankfully after that horrendous scene, I saw Chuck Zito, Big John, and Herb Dean.

After a few hours of waiting, 4 o' clock marked fight time and I was ready to get it on. :cool:

First fight of the night was Brett Cooper VS. Patrick Speight. This was an alright fight, started kinda slow. It wasn't my favorite fight.

Next up was Rios. vs. Duarte. This was a good fight, very active, and one of the fighters came out looking like a nerd with thick black rimmed glasses. He had on a nice gold chain too. I forgot his name though.

Forgot to mention in the above post that Trump and his wife came into the arena, and he got a huge applause. That was pretty neat to see him. :cool:

Next fight I was excited for, especially since Davis is a Miletich fighter. So I was looking forward to seeing some good stuff from him.

That's why I love the Honda Center so much, there's never any bad seats in there. My Dad and I were actually sitting in the $100 seats.

Up next was Nog and Matyushenko. :hyper: I was really stoked for this fight, and had big expectations. Althought it started off slow, Nog brought the pain with some nice knee shots that ended the fight.

Yeah the Miletich kid fight was awesome to. If you look in the spoiler thread Danelle you'll see that some of us got to watch the fights :)

I still wished I was coulda been there :scared:

Next was Lauzon/Green. I was skeptical about this fight because I knew Green took it on short notice. But I don't really know what to feel about this fight. Green nickname should be the nut cruncher after how many shots Lauzon took to the groin. :blink: I do question the last shot, because he didn't hit Lauzon in the groin, it end up being on his side. All the stopping was really getting annoying, and I'm sure if it wasn't for the groin shots, Green would have won.

Buentello/Sidelnikov

I was disappointed in Sidelniko. If you're going to be called "Baby Fedor" than you better bring it to the table. Buentello did look good though.

Lighting was horrible for this, but was one of the most brutal KOs of the night: Belfort/Linland. :scared0015: This got KTFO so bad, his legs were twitching.

Next up was Michelle's bf Barnett and Yvel. This was a very exciting HW match and I likey. :cool: I thought a few times that Yvel was going to end up KOing Barnett from the bottom, he had some mean punches from that postion.

Annnnnnnd now! The main event of the night..............Fedor/Arlovski :punch: :jumping0014: :jumping0014:

It got really loud in there at this point.

I have to admit, part of me felt like Arlovski had it in him to take Fedor's belt. He was taking it to him until he decided to get fancy with that flying punch. Fedor delievered a nice punch that knocked him the beep out. Not as brutal as Linland but he was out.

Now the KO came so fast, I wasn't able to get a shot of it.

Overall this was an awesome card. I really looking forward to another Affliction card. They are starting to improve their quality of production and are even giving out cards with the fighters on it ( I got cards of Fedor, Yvel, and two others that I can't remember), and an M-1 Global magazine.

If Affliction can start having autograph sessions and Q&As like the UFC, then the UFC better watch out. Affliction still has room for improvemnt, but after going to 2 of their events, they are on the right track. So WAR AFFLICTION! :punch:

I hope yall have enjoyed this tale and pictures, and hopefully the next event my Dad and I will be going to is Serra/Hughes. If not, then Mir/Lesnar 2 if it isn't on the same card.

I had to put that in there. :tongue0011: I had shoot of him standing in his corner for you, but it didn't come out that good.

One other thing I forgot to mention, Affliction does have some cool event shirts too. :cool:

http://www.afflictionclothingstore.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=1393

Although the UFC's event shirts are $25, I'm willing to pay an extra $7 for shirts like those.

I was disappointed in Sidelniko. If you're going to be called "Baby Fedor" than you better bring it to the table. Buentello did look good though.

Kirill is so young and The Headhunter has great boxing. I wonder if Fedor would want ot fight Paul just to deal out some payback!
