Those interested in seeing the rest of the preliminary fights featured on this weekend’s Affliction: Banned undercard will now have the opportunity to see those bouts live on television.
Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio informed our friends at MMA Junkie yesterday that the promotion’s debut broadcast on pay-per-view will run for a surprising four hours, allowing for the inclusion of eight bouts on the main card. Additionally, FOX Sports Net will now be airing three bouts instead of the originally-planned two.
“Every fight except the three that are going to be on FSN will be on pay-per-view,” Atencio said in the report.
