Arlovski-Nelson on joint Affliction-EXC CBS card http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/arlovski-nelson-tapped-for-cbs-14524 Arlovski was set to fight Barnett on Oct 11 on an Affliction card that got pushed back to January, but he's fighting Roy Nelson, who was the only man to hold the IFL's heavyweight title. What got my attention, though, is that this card was going to be a joint promotion between Elite XC and Affliction. Affliction has also been in talks with Oscar De La Hoya's Goldenboy Productions. It looks like these companies are trying to take a serious shot at the UFC's dominance. Having Arlovski on an EXC card is a great way to promote him for Affliction's next card, assuming he can get by Nelson.
