From MMAjunkie.com:

Top-ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko (30-1) has confirmed what most of already knew: He’s agreed to fight former UFC champion Josh Barnett (24-5) at Affliction’s upcoming third show.

Affliction hasn’t officially announced the fight, though Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio and representatives for Barnett have said agreements are in place.

Affliction III takes place Aug. 1. As Atencio recently told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio), it’s expected to be held at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

The night’s main card airs on pay-per-view, and the preliminary card is expected to air on HDNet.
