Affliction makes official Fedor-Arlovski on Jan. 24

Affliction has finally confirmed that Fedor Emelianenko-Andrei Arlovski will indeed take place January 24 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

Affliction released on Tuesday a commercial (see below) for the "Day of Reckoning" event.

Prior to the release of the commercial, Affliction would only say that the main event and January 24 date would probably happen, but wouldn't confirm the details 100%.

Vladimir Matyushenko, Jay Hieron, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Renato "Babalu" Sobral, Josh Barnett, Chris Horodecki, Matt Lindland and Vitor Belfort are all being advertised for the event.

Of the advertised fighters, the matchups originally put together for October 11 were Josh Barnett vs. Andrei Arlovski (Fedor would have fought Arlovski but Fedor suffered a hand injury), Matt Lindland vs. Vitor Belfort, Chris Horodecki vs. Dan Lauzon, and Vladimir Matyushenko vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
