In a move that strengthens its roster outside the heavyweight division, the upstart Affliction promotion on Wednesday announced the signing of former International Fight League poster boy Chris Horodecki (Pictures). Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The once-beaten 20-year-old Canadian will make his promotional debut at Affliction “Day of Reckoning” on Oct. 11 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. An opponent has yet to be named. Horodecki (12-1) last competed in April, when he earned a unanimous decision victory against World Championship Fighting veteran Nate Lamotte (Pictures) at an IFL show in East Rutherford, N.J. ...

I know. It said the same thing to me when I tried to prop you on the whole "left hook after the franklin kick to the face"

Just a word of advice, if you ask for props, you won't get them. Good call on the Affliction thing, because I thought he was going to go to WEC. So, I would have given you props, but you ask for props you gets no props.

I really don't care about the props. I'm propping myself. I'm just gloating which is way better than a thumb up next to my name! But i'll give you props for not propping me.

Good for Affliction and hopefully good for Horodecki he should be paid well, I just hope there is good competition for him so he can continue climbing the charts

Nice call. It's good that Affliction is signing all of these big names. But at what cost? They have only had one show, which was far from a huge moneymaker. And everybody is so happy that they are paying the fighters more. But with all of those big names signed, and the big salaries being handed out, they better hope their next few events are very profitable.

I think affliction can sign anybody they want for a decent price. If you look at it they had a salary of over 3.5 million or something for the last event. I see it as they are just promoting there clothing company more then anything. If they are selling 50 dollar shirts and like 60 to 80 dollar pants what is 3 million dollars to them. They can use the shows to promote there company. That how I see it.

No the clear winner here is Horodecki. And myself. I was glad Affliction landed him. He is a good fighter and deserves better than the WEC.
