Sad news fight fans, Affliction Trilogy has been abandoned.
The news comes via a recent report from Josh Gross at SI.com who has been able to confirm the event’s cancellation with multiple sources.
Apparently Affliction VP Tom Atencio was on the phone bright and early this morning contacting fighters to notify them that they will not be fighting next Saturday evening.
The nail in the coffin for Affliction Trilogy’s recent scrapping was undoubtedly Josh Barnett recently being pulled from his main event bout with Fedor Emelianenko due to testing positive for steroids for the second time in his professional fighting career.
Although it appears as thought the event is a done deal, no official word has been released from Affliction on its status at this time, and it is unclear as to whether they may still change their minds on the cancellation.
