Cerrone vs. Horodecki Wiki Update Wiki

In the ninth bout of WEC 53 Donald Cerrone took on Chris Horodecki. "The Cowboy" Cerrone came into the bout 5-3 with 1 no contest in WEC competition, while "The Polish Hammer" entered the contest at 2-1 in the WEC.

The shorter Horodecki was hit in the groin with an inside low kick early in the fight, causing a brief pause before restarting. Cerrone took the fight to the ground on his first attempt, but slipped off the back of Horodecki and lost position. After a series of mixed exchanges, Cerrone landed a strong knee to the chin as Horodecki closed the distance. Horodecki attacked the body and landed several shots, followed up with a spinning back kick. Cerrone popped up quickly when Horodecki looked for a double-leg takedown. Cerrone showed continued development in his wrestling and grappling, finishing the round by taking Horodecki's back but not having enough time to work for submissions.

Horodecki found himself in trouble early in round two, fighting off an omoplata and then getting stuck in a deep triangle. An odd moment took place with Horodecki accidentally sticking his fingers in Cerrone's mouth while fighting off the submission attempt, causing a flustered Cerrone to gag and call to the referee. Undeterred, Cerrone kept working the submission and a few moments later Horodecki finally had to submit from the choke.

Commenting to Craig Hummer in the post-fight interview, Cerrone stated, "Thanks to Greg Jackson always pushing to keep us motivated... Cole Miller, he beat a good friend of mine and I'm coming for you."
