WEC 51 Undercard Preview: Chris Horodecki vs. Ed Ratcliff

Chris Horodecki

Horodecki (15-2) was tagged as a prodigy just four years ago. Since then Horodecki has suffered some sharp criticism. Horodecki tore through the IFL's Lightweight division. Only losing to Ryan Schultz. He trains at the The Adrenaline Training Center in Canada. Horodecki was one of the few starts the IFL produced. Suffering from injuries Horodecki has never lived up to the hype, just yet.

Noteable Wins: Ryan Schultz (20-12-1) Bart Palaszewski twice (35-13) Shad Lierley (5-3)

Notable Losses: Ryan Schultz (20-12-1) Anthony Njokuani (12-4)

Ed Ratcliff

Ratcliff (7-2) Holds Black Belts in Tae Kwon Do and Karate. He trains out of Alliance MMA in California. Ratcliff cut his teeth in the local MMA promotion Total Combat. Known for his viscous strikes, Ratcliff has  put away most of his opponents by knockout. Ratcliff trained out of the Lion's Den in Texas under Ken Shamrock before moving out west.
