M-1 Challenge Events Now ‘In Association’ With Affliction

M-1 Challenge Affliction


M-1 Global and Affliction keep strengthening the ties in MMA. Officially from now on all the M-1 Challenge events will be organized in association with Affliction.

This sounds like a sponsorship more than anything else. Considering the M-1 Challenge takes place in various locations around the world, Affliction likely sees this as a way to break their clothing line into the international marketplace.

If Affliction Entertainment proves everyone wrong and becomes a long-term player, the M-1 Challenge could become a good feeder league for Affliction as well. It’s been said to have some very talented up-and-coming fighters competing in it. I’m not Jordan Breen so I’m really not familiar with too many of them but there’s a lot of buzz surrounding Fedor’s pupil, Kiril Sidelnikov, who I mentioned the other day. I posted a video of him trading bombs with Martin Szoltysik after the jump. It’s an entertaining fight with a great finish. Watch it.
