A previously rumored lightweight battle between former IFL lightweight standout Chris Horodecki and UFC veteran Dan Lauzon will most likely take place at Affliction’s “Day of Reckoning” show on October 11th in Las Vegas.
Both fighters have reportedly agreed to the fight according to Sherdog.com. Bout agreements have yet to be signed. Lauzon’s camp is said to be waiting to see paperwork for the bout before making signing a multi-fight deal with Affliction.
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.
