Originally posted on

A bout between welterweight veterans Jay Hieron (17-4) and Paul Daley (21-8-2) has been signed for Affliction's upcoming third show, which takes place Aug. 1.

The news comes from MMA FanHouse, which earlier this week reported that verbal agreements are also in place for a main event between Fedor Emelianenko and Josh Barnett.

Although not officially announced, Affliction III is expected to take place in the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

Hieron, a former UFC fighter who makes his second Affliction appearance, hasn't fought since his "Day of Reckoning" TKO victory over Jason High in January. The 64-second victory was Hieron's fifth consecutive win.
