It appears as though Affliction’s outstanding roster of talent could be on the verge of expanding even further, as a contract with Chris Horodecki is expected to be finalized with the promotion in the near future.
FiveOuncesOfPain.com learned of this development after contacting Horodecki’s co-manager, Matt Stansell of North Couty Fight Club. Stansell indicated that Horodecki had yet to formally sign a contract with Affliction but that a contract is expected to be signed soon.
While Stansell would not comment as to whether Horodecki would debut during the promotion’s Oct. 11 fight card in Las Vegas, he would seem like a logical fit for the show considering his local tie to the city by training out of Xtreme Couture.
The 20-year old standout kickboxer is 12-1 lifetime in MMA and compiled an 8-1 record in the IFL with notable wins over Ryan Schultz, Bart Palaszewski, and Shad Lierly. His lone career loss came at the hands of Schultz during their second-ever meeting while competing this past December in the finals of the IFL’s lightweight Grand Prix.
Known for a youthful appearance and an exciting fighting style, Horodecki is considered one of the top free agents in all of MMA and has attracted interest from multiple promotions since receiving a release from his IFL contract.
