Affliction Day of Reckoning Ad: Josh Barnett, Andrei Arlovski and Ozzy Osbourne

Here's the ad Affliction is using to promote its next show, Day of Reckoning:

The ad looks professionally done, just like everything Affliction puts together, but I have my doubts that the names on this show are enough to sustain a pay-per-view. The three guys they mention are Josh Barnett and Andrei Arlovski, who will fight in the main event, and ... Ozzy Osbourne.

I realize there are a lot of Ozzy fans out there, but are they really going to pay $40 or $50 to buy Affliction: Day of Reckoning on pay-per-view because Ozzy is going to play a couple of songs? And what about all the mixed martial arts fans who don't like Ozzy Osbourne? Do they really want the fights interrupted by a performance? The quality of the MMA in this show will be fine, but I just don't think they have the right names to sell it as a pay-per-view.
