Affliction's second MMA event "Day of Reckoning" has been canceled for October 11th, but apparently has been rescheduled for sometime in January 2009.

MMA Rated broke the story earlier has learned that the second Affliction show scheduled for October 11th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, has been cancelled.

The show was set to feature a main event heavyweight eliminator between Josh Barnett and Andrei Arlovski.

As of this morning, the event was taken off the Thomas & Mack Center's schedule.

Additionally, Loretta Hunt confirmed the rescheduling on Sherdog.

Affliction contacted Kizer on Wednesday morning to inform him that the event would be moved to a January date at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

Advertising for the Oct. 11 pay-per-view event had already begun, including in New York, where scheduled headliners Andrei Arlovski (Pictures) and Josh Barnett (Pictures) were featured on a billboard in Times Square.

Arlovski’s management said they had not been contacted by Affliction with the cancellation as of this morning, and were “shocked” and “extremely disappointed” by the news.

Some disappointing news for sure, but does this extra time clear Fedor Emelianenko to fight on the card again?

A shame, Affliction 1 had the best mma fight card ever. Affliction 2 seemed just as good. I guess on the good side both Fedor and Vitor belfort will be able to fight by then.
Affliction has the(number 1,3,4,6)best heavy weights in the world (nogueria = 2 in ufc). Go Affliction.
