Affliction inks three-fight deal with Chris Horodecki

Affliction won the bid for Horodecki over several promotions including World Victory Road, who was interested in flying in Horodecki to Japan to fight Takanori Gomi.

Horodecki is expected to compete at the second Affliction event, "Day of Reckoning" at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
