Chris Horodecki has been forced out of his scheduled bout against Dan Lauzon on Saturday at Affliction “Day of Reckoning” after failing to receive medical clearance from the CSAC for undisclosed reasons.
MMAFrenzy.com confirmed the news with sources on Wednesday and has learned that the promotion is actively seeking a replacement for the lightweight tilt, which was to air on the pay-per-view card.
A veteran of TKO and the IFL, the 21-year-old Horodecki was most recently active in April with a unanimous decision win over Nate Lamotte.
Lauzon, the youngest fighter to ever compete in the UFC, has won seven-straight bouts since early-2007 after previously dropping back-to-back fights, including his UFC debut against Spencer Fisher.
MMAFrenzy.com will pass along news of a replacement when it becomes available.
