Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Horodecki to Face Cerrone at WEC 53

(Chances are this one isn’t going to decision.)

It looks like Mark Hominick won’t be the only Team Tompkins product who will get a step up in competition for his next WEC fight.

Chris Horodecki is slated to take on former WEC number one lightweight contender Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone at WEC 53 on December 16 in Phoenix, AZ.

The news was first reported by MMAWeekly, and has since been able to confirm the bout with a source close to the fight.

16-2 in his five-year MMA career, "The Polish Hammer" was knocked out in dramatic fashion in his WEC debut by Anthony Njokuani, but rebounded with a pair of wins over Danny Downes and Ed Ratcliffe. Cerrone will arguably provide the 23-year-old London, Ontario native, who was the face of thew now-defunct International Fight League with his toughest test to date.

Cerrone (12-3 1 NC), who put in his most impressive performance of his career in his unanimous decision victory over former WEC lightweight champ Jamie Varner at WEC 51 last month will be looking to use Horodecki to send a statement to current champ Ben Henderson that he is gunning for another title shot.

Henderson will defend his strap against Anthony Pettis on the same card, but the winner of the Cerrone-Horodecki bout will likely get a long hard look as the next contender.

Of course Cerrone has fans. He called varner a pussy and a fag, thereby making anyone who is not a pussfag themselves into a fan.

Cerrone really has fans? Good fight and I'm picking Anthony Michael Hall.

Cowboy vs. A Boy
Cerrone finishes Chris 2nd rd. and sends him back to CANADA to nurse his wounds with Hominick.

Unless this one ends by submission I'm betting this does go the distance. Cerrone has never finished anyone by KO/TKO & Horodecki hasn't finished anyone by KO/TKO since 2006. It's definitely gonna be an entertaining fight though. I'm not a big fan of either but they both always show up to fight.

Go Canada!

Remember when that asshole Sam Caplan tried to get all of those MMA sites to join his bullshit WAMMA rankings and rank dipshits like Horodecki in the top ten at Lightweight? What a joke that was!

You weren't a part of that shit, were you Ben? weren't, right? Right?

I'd like to see Horodecki cut the fat off and try the 145 division.

I agree that Shalorus would be an awesome fight. Cowboy posses that testicles on which I typically reside, so i must cast my vote for him. Don takes it in the 3rd round, by sub or ko I cannot tell yet. It just keeps telling me, "Try Again Later"

Cowboy will send Horodecki back to Poland.

^Yeah we need to see that to help us determine the alpha bald.

Was hoping to see Cerrone fight Shalarus, but since they're both booked now hopefully they can each win and set it up

Horodecki looks like a special kid...i mean, like the olympics
BONGTAR- October 21, 2010 at 12:24 pm
Hordecki ruined by cowboy fury.

Call me wrong but I want to order fries when I see Horodecki's face.

War Horodecki!
GetUpAndKill- October 21, 2010 at 11:56 am a fan of both fighters I don't wanna see this fight happen.

Cerrone VS an 8 year old seems like a bit of a missmatch.
