Affliction – Banned

Affliction: Banned was co-promoted by Affliction Clothing and Adrenaline MMA. It took place on July 19, 2008 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

The evening’s main event featured the last undefeated Pride FC heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko against former two-time UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia for the newly-created WAMMA heavyweight championship. The one hour undercard was broadcast on Fox Sports Network and The Fight Network while the main fight card was broadcast live on pay-per-view. Also appearing at the event was heavy metal band Megadeth who performed live. The announcer was Michael Buffer. There was also one swing bout between Justin Levens and Ray Lazama that was set to take place after the main event, but the time left and the ring condition prevented it.
