Affliction at a press conference today formally announced its second event, "Day of Reckoning" on Oct. 11 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

The main event will feature two former UFC heavyweight champions Andrei Arlovski and Josh Barnett in a number one contender bout to determine an opponent for Fedor Emelianenko's first WAMMA heavyweight title defense.

Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort will continue to try to make his mark as a middleweight when he takes on Matt Lindland, an Olympic Silver Medalist in Greco-Roman Wrestling.

IFL heavyweight champion Roy Nelson will fight Paul Buentello on the headlining bout of the undercard to be broadcasted on HDNet.
