Chris Horodecki Not Medically Cleared To Fight At Affliction

The news comes from MMAJunkie.com:

Former International Fight League stand-out Chris Horodecki (12-1) has been pulled from Saturday's “Affliction: Day of Reckoning” bout with Dan Lauzon (11-2).

Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) Horodecki was unable to get medical clearance from the California State Athletic Commission.

A source close to the event said the issue may have been neurologically related.

Atencio is currently looking for a replacement fighter to take on Lauzon. The bout is scheduled for the “Day of Reckoning” pay-per-view main card, which also includes a main event between WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko and Andrei Arlovski. The night's preliminary card airs live on HDNet.
