WEC Scrambles for 155er
Ed Ratcliff has unfortunately been forced to withdraw from his showdown this Sunday at WEC against the “Polish Hammer” Chris Horodecki. Top MMA News was unable to determine the reason behind Ratcliff’s withdrawal. Last night, word spread that the organization was looking for a 155er that was medically cleared and ready to step in against Canada’s 4th Ranked Canadian Lightweight. Ratcliff posted the following on his Facebook wall,
“I wanna say sorry to all the fans, family, and friends for having to pull out on such late notice. Even more importantly I wanna appologise to Chris Horodecki for going thru all of that hard work and not getting the final release u deserve. I wish u the best. Sorry everyone.!!!!!!”
One possiblity that Top MMA News would like to see is the 3rd ranked Guillaume De Lorenzi who is medically cleared and ready to step in without any notice. This would create a match between the third and fourth ranked Lightweights in Canada, however, De Lorenzi is scheduled to fight Dale Hartt at Ringside this weekend.
This would be the most significant matchup on the card that is hurting for Canadian talent.
