Former International Fight League (IFL) star Chris Horodecki is slated to make his debut for the promotion against Anthony Njokuani at WEC 45, which is scheduled to take place at The Pearl at the Palms Resort Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Dec. 19.

Nicknamed "The Polish Hammer," Horodecki has stormed through most of the competition throughout his professional career. His lone loss came to Ryan Schultz at IFL: "World Grand Prix" in 2007, an upset that cost him the lightweight belt. The 22-year-old won his first 11 fights prior to crushing loss.

Horodecki’s IFL career ended with a win over Nate Lamotte via unanimous decision in April of 2008. He then fought in Ultimate Chaos: "Lashley vs. Sapp" in June, defeating William Sriyapai. Horodecki was scheduled to fight Dan Lauzon in Affliction: "Trilogy," but the promotion’s demise prevented that fight from ever happening.

Horodecki now finds himself in a secure organization after years of fighting in upstarts. However, his winning future in the lightweight division he enters is anything but secure with the likes of Ben Henderson, Donald Cerrone and Jamie Varner at the top of the heap.

Njokuani last fought at WEC 43, defeating Muhsin Corbbrey via technical knockout. His other win in the WEC is over Bart Palaszewski at WEC 40.

His debut with the promotion at WEC 38 was a submission loss to current WEC interim lightweight champion Ben Henderson. Njokuani's only other loss was to Donald Cerrone at ROF 29: "Aftershock," meaning the Nigerian-American has had little success against the current divisional leaders of the WEC lightweight division.
