Affliction: Banned Luke's Picks

Prelims are on FSN starting 8PM EST/5pm PST
PPV starts 9PM EST/6pm PST

WAMMA Heavyweight Championship bout: Fedor Emelianenko vs. Tim Sylvia

- I am going with Tim in an upset. Fedor hasn’t fought a legit MMA fighter in two years and the two big guys that he has beaten in the past weren’t anywhere close to as talented as Tim. For as much crap as Tim gets from fans the guy is a legit fighter. You don’t hold the UFC heavyweight belt twice and not be extremely talented.

Heavyweight bout: Andrei Arlovski vs. Ben Rothwell

- Arlovski via KO. Rothwell has zero quality wins and a decision win over a fat rehab’d Ricco Rodriguez in September is less than impressive

Heavyweight bout: Josh Barnett vs. Pedro Rizzo

- Barnett via submission. Josh has got revenge on his mind, Rizzo half the man he used to be.

Middleweight bout: Matt Lindland vs. Fabio Negao

- Lindland shakes off a year and a half of ring rust and comes away victorious

Light heavyweight bout: Renato Sobral vs. Mike Whitehead

- Babalu via TKO
