Affliction VP Tom Atencio’s Thoughts On The UFC’s July 19 Event

Tom Atencio, Affliction caught up with Affliction VP, Tom Atencio, to get his thoughts on the UFC putting together a last minute event to counter their MMA debut, Affliction “Banned.”

It’s just an example of how they want to control everything but at the same time it’s flattering as well. I guess they do view us as threat…absolutely.

Apparently this news hasn’t come as a shock to Atencio, since he claims he’s known about the UFC’s plans for a while. Tom definitely has his work cut out for him now.

The latest Affliction: Banned fight card and event info can be found in our fight cards section.
