Horodecki, Amasinger Get Opponents to Reckon With


Top MMA News has learned that Chris “The Polish Hammer” Horodecki will face Dave Castillo in the semi-main event of MMA: The Reckoning at Casino Rama on April 2.

With a record of 16-3, Horodecki is a top Canadian Lightweight having fought in the WEC and the IFL. Horodecki has won two of his last three fights facing veterans like Donald Cerrone, Ed Ratcliff, and Danny Downes.  Now, the Adrenaline MMA fighter is finally getting to fight in his home province.

The Polish Hammer will face Salt Lake City, Utah’s Dave Castillo on the card. Castillo trains out of Jeremy Horn’s Elite Performance Gym and has gone 9-2 in his career.  He is on a two fight winning streak with his last victory coming against Jon Walser.

Amasinger Gets New Opponent
Top MMA News has also learned that a Matt MacGrath will be replacing Louis-Philippe Carle on the card. MacGarth, who was originally scheduled to face Jordan Mein on the card, but was forced to withdraw due to the fact he was already schedualed to meet Steve Vigneault at  MFL 4.  Carle injured his rotator cuff in an awkard fall in wrestling practice.

With MFL cancelling their March 12 card, this created a perfect window for MacGrath to regain his position on the card albeit against a different opponent. MacGrath has a career record of 9-5 and looks to return to welterweight after a lackluster decision loses to Kalib Starnes at midleweight. Ironically, MacGrath was originally on the Reckoning card to face Jordan Mein before pulling out due to the MFL obligation.

Amasinger, 7-3 overall, a product of Team Rough House from the UK looks to right his ship after going 1-2 in his last 3 fights. Amasinger should be ready to go after training with Ross Pearson prior to his UFC 127 appearance.

The two fights join a solid card which already include a main event of Jordan Mein vs Josh Burkman.  Tickets are still available for Ontario’s first sanctioned MMA event at Casino Rama.
