Report: Lindland Vs. Belfort Back On For Affliction: Day Of Reckoning


According to a report on, a rumored bout between Matt Lindland and Babalu Sobral has been scrapped for Affliction: Day of Reckoning on January 24th and it now appears that Lindland will fight Vitor Belfort, who he was scheduled to fight in October before the second Affliction show was postponed.

…there was a strong desire to schedule a middleweight matchup between Lindland and former UFC light heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort. While Lindland vs. Belfort has not yet been finalized, Wilner stated that out of respect for Lindland, the promotion, and the sport itself, he was willing to opt out so that all parties involved could pursue the matchup.

Although the fight has not been announced by Affliction it appears there is a very stong chance that it is in the works.
