With Ed Ratcliff forced to bow out of this Sunday's WEC 49 event for undisclosed reasons, undefeated Roufusport fighter Danny "Boy" Downes (6-0 MMA, 0-0 WEC) has stepped up to face Chris Horodecki (13-2 MMA, 0-1 WEC).

WEC officials made the announcement late Tuesday night.

The Downes vs. Horodecki fight is expected to remain on the televised portion of the card

Hopefully Horodecki can get a win this time around without making a, IMO, dumbass mistake. I love Horodecki, he's one of my favorite fighters, that mistake against Njokuani was just heartbreaking, though. I think he rebounds, learns from that, and doesn't make a mistake like that again.

I was having hard time picking the horodecki/ratcliff fight but yeah hopefully chris has a better outing here against the rookie.

Edit: The horodecki/ratcliff fight was the former hot bout

Who does that? What was Horodecki thinking? His striking is so great, it just seems weird that he'd make that mistake. The Polish Hammer will win this because I want him to, hopefully, haha.

Losing to a better fighter isn't a mistake.

Losing isnt a mistake. Turning your back and getting kicked in the head, however, is a mistake.
