I see Affliction being able to put on one, maybe two, spectacular cards per year, even in the long run. Like it or not, you've got to face it...the UFC is top dog right now, especially stateside, hands down.
Is it a monopoly? Maybe...monopolies run most of our lives anyway, though, so why should we get all bent out of shape about the UFC?
Affliction's best bet is to co-promote with other smaller orgs. I can see them becoming a noticeable force (though not a threat to the UFC) with time.
3-4 in sig bets. FUCK me.
