Apparently there is something going on with Aleks and Buentello not weighing in.

**There is some confusion on the scene, as Paul Buentello and Aleksander Emelianenko did not weigh-in. Comments were not immediately available from the fighters or the organization.

MMA Mania believes it has something to do with Emelianenko’s medical clearance. is reporting that Aleks failed to meet his licensing requirements.

The heavyweight bout between Aleksander Emelianenko (Pictures) and Paul Buentello (Pictures) scheduled for Saturday’s Affliction debut event has been cancelled.

According to Bill Douglas of the California State Athletic Commission, Emelianenko did not meet his licensing requirements.

Very disappointing. We’ll keep you posted if more details emerge.

Affliction ‘Banned’ will take place July 19 at 8PM ET/ 5PM PT live on FSN and 9PM ET/ 6PM PT live on pay-per-view.
