"It's pretty obvious the UFC is having fits over Affliction Banned," points out Payton O'Brien, Operations Manager for  "To put there event up against Affliction is rather classless."

Tim Sylvia would pay out $300 for every $100 bet if he were to somehow pull off a win against Fedor.

Not impossible writes Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today:

Sylvia (24-4, 16 knockouts) isn't discrediting Emelianenko's record. "He's a bad dude.... Every time they put somebody in front of him, he beats him," Sylvia said.
