MARQUEE HEAVYWEIGHT FIGHT BETWEEN TWO FORMER MMA CHAMPIONS -- ANDREI ARLOVSKI AND ROY NELSON -- HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE "CBS ELITEXC SATURDAY NIGHT FIGHTS" PRIMETIME EVENT ON OCT. 4

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 24 - CBS, EliteXC, and Trump's Affliction Entertainment jointly announced today that a fifth fight has been added to the lineup for CBS ELITEXC SATURDAY NIGHT FIGHTS on Saturday, Oct. 4 featuring top-ranked MMA heavyweights Andrei Arlovski against the last reigning IFL heavyweight champion Roy "Big Country" Nelson.

Arlovski, who was originally slated to fight in the main event of the Oct. 11 Affliction card, is the No. 4 ranked heavyweight in the world, according to MMAWEEKLY.com. A native of Belarus, Arlovski was last seen ending Ben Rothwell's 13-fight winning streak during the inaugural "Affliction Banned" show, which was held on July 19, 2008. Arlovski is a former UFC heavyweight champion and currently has a record of 13-5.

Roy "Big Country" Nelson has made a name for himself with impressive knock outs, a remarkable ground game and stellar submissions. He was the IFL's last reigning heavyweight champion and currently holds an impressive record of 13-2. Training with Ken Shamrock's legendary fight camp, the Lion's Den, Nelson stands at 6'0" and weighs approximately 250 pounds.

"This is yet another testament to EliteXC's willingness to work with other MMA promotions to bring the best possible fights to the broadest possible audience," said Jeremy Lappen, head of the Live Fight Division of EliteXC. "Special thanks to the hard working team at Affliction and of course our partners at CBS and Showtime."

Michael Cohen, Executive Vice President of The Trump Organization and Chief Operating Officer of Affliction Entertainment, added, "Mr. Trump and the Affliction Entertainment group are honored to be working alongside CBS, Showtime and EliteXC. It is without question that this event will exceed everyone's expectations and will continue to uphold Affliction's promise to promote the best fights for the benefit of the fans."

The third installment of CBS's primetime MMA event, CBS ELITEXC SATURDAY NIGHT FIGHTS, will be broadcast live from the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla. on Saturday, Oct. 4 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
