WEC Signs Danny Downes to Fight Chris Horodecki at Sunday’s WEC 49

Chris HorodeckiWorld Extreme Cagefighting has signed undefeated lightweight Danny Downes, who will make his WEC debut as a last-minute replacement for Ed Ratcliff against Chris Horodecki at Sunday’s WEC 49 event in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

WEC general manager Reed Harris announced the signing and replacement Tuesday night on Versus’ The Daily Line after Ratcliff withdrew from the Versus-televised card with an undisclosed injury earlier today.

The Duke Roufus-trained Downes (6-0), who counts Pat Barry, Ben Rothwell, and Anthony Pettis among his teammates, has gone to decision just once, most-recently scoring his fourth career first-round TKO in April to improve to 6-0.

Horodecki (13-2), a former IFL standout, made his anticipated WEC debut in December, but suffered a first-round knockout to Anthony Njoukuani.

WEC 49 is headlined by former lightweight champ Jamie Varner vs. Kamal Shalorus, and also includes Mark Hominick vs. Yves Jabouin and Josh Grispi vs. LC Davis.
