How low can things go?

So what will happen to the fighters on the Affliction Trilogy show who haven’t been paid?

“Where we are right now with all the fighters, is their managers and lawyers are looking at how (the fighters) are going to be compensated for lack of a fight,” said Tompkins.

One source told Sherdog.com Friday that the clothing purveyors-turned-promoters are offering T-shirt deals to the ousted fighters to help offset their losses.

    By the way, if these great MMA writers knew about Affliction’s attempts to get back into the UFC’s good graces before the final bell was rung, why are they just reporting it now? So, the day after Affliction folds Meltzer comes out with the “Affliction was trying to fold a month ago” story? Where was that story a month ago then?

    Sounds to me like he’s being fed lines by people and retroactively rewriting history for his business partners and his best friend.

    Its not exactly like they were protecting Affliction, were they?

    The comment Romey posted is bordering on ancient and based on Golden Boy being able to run a mixed card (which was heavily rumored in place of the eventual Lightweight Lightning show). That fell apart for a number of reasons, not the least of which the stunningly hard line approach taken by HBO in the last 6 months. He’s right: it didn’t take place. Now the only wonder is whether or not they’ll keep an interest in the sport. I’d be surprised if they didn’t.
