Former IFL lightweight standout Chris Horodecki is reportedly in talks to take on UFC veteran Dan Lauzon at Affliction’s “Day of Reckoning” show on October 11th in Las Vegas.
The word comes from MMANews.com, which has learned from a source within Affliction that the organization is currently in talks to pair the two up at the event. At the least, Lauzon’s name has definitely been thrown around as a strong possibility to face Horodecki.
Horodecki became a free agent upon asking for his release from the almost-defunct International Fight League earlier this month. He was previously rumored to have been taking on Takanori Gomi at Sengoku IV next weekend but talks eventually broke down. Horodecki last won a unanimous decision over Nate Lamotte in April.
Since losing consecutive Spencer Fisher and Deividas Taurosevicius, Lauzon has racked up six straight wins fighting primarily in the Boston area. He most recently scored a second-round TKO of Brendan Hoxie at a World Championship Fighting event in June.
