Default Next Affliction event

What matches would you realistic like to see for the next event? I've read apparently the next event (Fedor vs Barnett) will take place in May or June. How may shows are the looking to do this year if the next event will be around may/june? Mousasi has said he may fight at the next event. It would be good if he stayed at 185 and has a fight with Belfort. If he moves up as he has said, a match Babalu would also be a good fight. Babalu vs Tito is also a possiblity if Tito is healed by then. They need to build up their roster as it is still quite thin. Hopefully, they sign a few more guy before the next card.

They need to get some young new talent through or sign some new fighters, get some lightweights and welterweights on the go.

Id like to see a rematch of Diaz/Noons in Affliction. Id like them to do 4 events a year with Fedor at least in two of them

They have Horodecki, who pulled out of the fight last Sat.

Yeah, Diaz vs Noons would be good and both would be good additions to the roster. Horodecki vs Lauzon (two youngsters) which was meant to happen, will probabaly happen in the next event.

Fedor hasnt even had to work longer then 1round combined in his Affliction bouts.If this rate continues he would be able to fight atleast 4-5times a year...

Afflictions going to need to add some depth to its roster unless they just wanna run 2 shows a year. The divisons getting thinner at everyweight going down from Heavyweight.
