0

Ariel Helwani with MMARated.com spoke with Affliction COO Michael D. Cohen today and he gave a little insight into the postponement of the October 11th card:

Michael D. Cohen: At this present moment, I can not give the reason but what I can tell you is that there is going to be a public announcement made and this announcement is truly going to change the world of mixed martial arts. Unlike other similar statements made, the press conference that will be had in the near future will have the affect as I described it.

AH: When will we find out more about this announcement?

MCD: Within two weeks. We are truly hoping that it will be within one week, but the reality is two weeks. MMA fans all around the world will understand the reason for the postponement of the event. And something I want to make clear to all the readers whether it's on MMARated.com or any other website out there: The event has not been cancelled, it's postponed, and the reasons will become very apparent to all.

AH: Is Affliction's next event going to be in January in Anaheim?

MCD: There is an event that we are currently preparing for which will be a January event in Anaheim.

AH: Any specific date?

MCD: Not yet.

AH: So, in other words, this is a great day for Affliction?

MCD: Yes it is.
