During last night's DREAM event, Fedor Emelianenko announced that he would like to be a part of DREAM's New Year's Eve card:
That sound you hear is Affliction V.P. Tom Atencio crying. Affliction built their brand on being the promotion who could get Fedor to fight in the U.S. With the next Affliction card scheduled for January 17, it is highly unlikely that Fedor will fight just weeks after the DREAM fight. Without a well-known fighter like Emelianenko, Affliction will have a hard time convincing fans to buy tickets and pay-per-views.
