If a rival MMA promotion was thinking about making a run at IFL lightweight wunderkind Chris Horodecki, it appears they’ll have to wait until 2009. The Fight Network is quoting Horodecki as saying that the IFL has exercised its option to extend his contract for the 2008 season.
Horodecki is slated to return from a hand injury when he takes on Bart Palaszewski in the first round of the promotion’s portion of its light weight World Grand Prix on Nov. 3 in Chicago.
The IFL announced recently that they will be televising a hour of the event live on MyNetworkTV at 8 p.m. ET. Televised matches have yet to been officially announced but I’ve been assured that Palaszewski vs. Horodecki II is a virtual lock to be shown.
