Nice job Affliction. We can bag on Affliction till we’re blue in the face for their business decisions and contradictions, but you have to admit, they put on some pretty wicked fight cards. “Banned” was pretty good, “Day of Reckoning” was even better, and “Trilogy” is looking like an awesome night of fights as well.
