(Shad Lierley falls against Chris Horodecki, 6/1/07)
So much for the “Fight of the Year” rematch. The IFL just sent out a bummer of a press release stating that lightweight contender Shad Lierley broke a toe during practice, and won’t be able to compete at the IFL’s World Grand Prix on December 29. Lierley was scheduled to face Chris Horodecki for the league’s lightweight title. Filling in for Lierley will be John “Guns” Gunderson, a member of Ken Shamrock‘s Nevada Lions team who has gone 2-2 during his time with the IFL.
Ah well — Horodecki would have whipped his ass anyway. I’m going to find out who was responsible for breaking Lierley’s toe, so we can put him on CagePotato’s official “Do Not Train With!” list along with Matt Arroyo, Richie Hightower and Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou.
