Chris Horodecki heads to Japan for 'S-Cup'

Chris Horodecki will enter the Shootboxing "S-Cup 2008" same-night eight-man tournament on November 24 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

Horodecki will take on Shoot boxing-trained Hiroki Shishido in the quarterfinals of the biennial tournament, which will also feature PRIDE Bushido veteran Luiz Azeredo ? the first man to beat Anderson Silva-- and 2-time K-1 MAX and 2-time S-Cup champion Andy Souwer.

Shoot boxing, also referred to as standing vale tudo, is similar to kickboxing except that throws and standing submissions are allowed.

After this fight Horodecki will fight on January 24, 2009 at Affliction 2 "Day of Reckoning" in Anaheim, California.
