Rising lightweight prospect standout Chris Horodecki has now become a free agent upon asking for his release from the almost-defunct International Fight League.
Horodecki’s manager, Jeff Clark, confirmed his client’s release from the IFL with Sherdog.com today. Several organizations have reportedly already lined up to bid for Horodecki’s services, including World Extreme Cagefighting and the upstart American Fight League, which has apparently came forward with the most generous offer thus far.
“The AFL has come in with a very generous offer,” Clark said in the report., “but Affliction has said they will match it or beat it. We’re [also] continuing our discussions with World Victory Road.”
Horodecki was previously rumored to have been taking on Takanori Gomi at Sengoku IV later this month but talks eventually broke down. Affliction Entertainment is said to want Horodecki to compete on their recently announced “Day of Reckoning” card on October 11th against a yet-to-be-determined opponent. However at this time, it seems that he is content to weigh his options before making any quick decisions.
