Horodecki Receives Opponent for April 2 Ontario Event

By Mike Whitman Mar 17, 2011
Chris Horodecki (Pictured) now has an opponent for Ontario's first sanctioned MMA event, as “The Polish Hammer” will square off with Jeremy Horn pupil David Castillo in a lightweight affair at MMA: The Reckoning.

The event, put on by Knockout Entertainment, will go down April 2 from Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario, Canada. Also scheduled for the event is a welterweight contest between Team Rough House representative Dean Amasinger and Canadian Matt MacGrath.

Amasinger was originally supposed to face Louis-Phillipe Carle at the show, but Carle has reportedly been forced to withdraw from the bout with an injury. TopMMANews.com first reported the updated fight card on Thursday.

A former International Fight League lightweight contender, Horodecki began his career a perfect 12-0 before losing in the IFL grand prix finals in 2007. Just 23 years old, the Polish-Canadian made his WEC debut in December 2009, losing by knockout to lanky kickboxer Anthony Njokuani. Following back-to-back victories over Roufusport product Danny Downes and Alliance MMA representative Ed Ratcliff, Horodecki was bounced from the promotion following a second-round submission defeat to former WEC title challenger Donald Cerrone.

Castillo rides back-to-back victories heading into his showdown with Horodecki. After starting his career a perfect 7-0, the Elite Performance representative suffered the first and only losses of his career in 2009 and 2010, respectively. He finished last year strong, however, earning submission victories over Ty Hamblin in June and Jon Walser in September.
