The bout, which was originally slated to take place in January at Affliction: Day of Reckoning, was confirmed on Monday by MMAjunkie.
Horodecki (12-1), a former top contender in the IFL, has not fought since last April when he bounced back from the first loss of his career with a unanimous decision victory over Nate Lamotte. Prior to his August matchup with Lauzon, Horodecki will return to action in June on the undercard of Lashley-Sapp against William Sriyapai.
Lauzon (12-2), the youngest fighter in UFC history who suffered a loss to Spencer Fisher in his UFC debut in October 2006, has bounced back from back-to-back losses with eight-straight victoires since early-2007. Lauzon defeated Bobby Green via first-round submission at Affliction’s January event.
