The Affliction “Day of Reckoning” weigh-ins took place today at The Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
All fighters made weight. The highlight of the evening was while Jerry Millen was on stage announcing Fedor, Bas Rutten said, “That’s the asshole. Oh, did I just say that on TV? (laughs),” live on the HDNet broadcast. Bas, thank you! Also, WAMMA head Michael Lynch gave everyone a sneak preview of the $17,000 WAMMA ring they’re presenting to Fedor tomorrow. That was pretty ridiculous. Oh, and Tito got a birthday cake.

- Fedor Emelianenko (230) vs. Andrei Arlovski (237)
