Though Affliction is still new to the MMA world, UFC sees them as a treat since during the Affliction: Banned event night, UFC also held UFC: Silva vs. Irvin. UFC is owned and managed by Zuffa, LLC (created by Lorenzo Fertitta and Frank Fertitta) whereas Affliction is managed in partnerships of Golden Boy Promotions, Business Magnate Donald Trump, and M-1 Global.
