Lindland Finally Gets An Opponent For Affliction Card

Middleweight Matt Lindland, due to an injury to his original opponent Vitor Belfort, had to wait a spell to see who his next opponent would be; Lindland will not have to wait anymore as MMAjunkie.com reports that Lindland will face Trevor Prangley at the Affliction: Day of Reckoning event. 

Prangley, a veteran of the UFC, Strikeforce and BodogFIGHT promotions, has some impressive victories over Falaniko Vitale, Yuki Kondo, Travis Lutter, Matt Horwich, Chael Sonnen and others; despite that, losses to Jorge Santiago, Jeremy Horn and Renato Sobral have prevented Prangley from getting that elusive contender status.  Meanwhile, Lindland’s last bout was a win over Fabio Nascimento and has not lost a fight since 2004 at 185 pounds.  Below is the tentative fight card for Affliction: Day of Reckoning*:

  • Andrei Arlovski vs. Josh Barnett
