Horodecki (20 4 1 1) now moves on to what might be his best opportunity to date a chance to fight for Las Vegas promotion World Series of Fighting. Although he's signed a contract, no date has been set for Horodecki's debut, but he said it could be as early as December depending on how he feels physically.
on the weekend, but Champion said attendance will be close to the venue's 2,500 seat capacity.
Gordon said he wasn't originally planning to take Reyes to the mat, despite his reputation.
Without an amateur MMA fight in the record books, Ludlow was one of the most intriguing stories heading into Saturday as she made her professional debut versus Alberta's Lynnell House.

"There's some history between me and (Reyes) but it's all professional when we're in the ring," Gordon said afterwards. "He's a hard hitting 135 (pounder). He did stun me at first and I knew that was going to happen, he was going to come out guns blazing. I had to get him to the ground."
Except, maybe, that the Polish Hammer, as experienced as any 26 year old fighter can be after nearly a decade of professional mixed martial arts, finally got an opportunity to fight in front of friends and family in the Forest City.

Later, London's Ryan Thomson was the third hometown fighter to lose his professional debut after he tapped out to a rear naked choke by Darryl Marin, the only submission of the evening.
There was nothing incredible or spectacular about Chris Horodecki's main event victory over short notice opponent Frank Caraballo at the inaugural Provincial Fighting Championships (PFC) event in London Oct. 26.
But after a bloody nose seemed to bother Ludlow in the middle of the first, House took advantage, backed Ludlow up against the cage, and finished the fight with strikes at 4:17. Ludlow took a few extra punches after what seemed to be a slow stoppage by the official.

"I've fought all over the world . and this is the most meaningful (fight) for me, just because it means so much to be in front of my hometown, in front of my fans," Horodecki said, sporting a shiner and a smile following the tough fought win. "This time the show came to London, it was done right and I'm so happy I got to be the feature here."
Slick combinations from Horodecki kept Caraballo guessing for most of the fight. Horodecki was also able to control things against the cage and on the mat, getting a pop from the crowd in Round 2 after landing a head kick before out wrestling Caraballo for the majority of the third.
London's Ryan Waterman was defeated via TKO at 1:41 of the first round to open the event. Sarnia's Woodrow James then quickly defeated Londoner Kyle Stephsensen in 1:45, also via TKO.

"I haven't fought for a little while so it was good to get out there again," she said. "I'm just ready to get back into the gym and start training for the next one. I'll probably feel a little bit more confident going in next time."London's Jesse Gross didn't come away with a victory over the now 6 0 Michael Karkula, but it wasn't for lack of trying. The co main event was definitely the night's finest match up.
"It's an eye opener for them," Horodecki said after praising the PFC show generally. "A lot of these guys are green. A lot of these guys haven't fought professionally yet. It's learning experience. It's not about how you go down, it's about how you get up."
Adrenaline Training Centre prospect Malcolm Gordon was the first Londoner to get into the win column Saturday in a feisty, fast paced bout with Lloyd Reyes that looked to feature some extra animosity.
Gordon was hurt by Reyes early before taking the fight to the mat, where his strong submission game has provided him the most success early in his pro career so far. But the fighters were standing soon afterwards and it was Gordon who landed the match finishing blows at 3:38 of the first round.
"(Caraballo's) cleaned house in Cleveland so I knew coming into this fight he'd be super tough," said Horodecki, who was favoured on the judges' score cards 30 27, 30 27, 29 28, in the unanimous decision win. "I'm just happy he took it (the fight)."

"I really want to showcase my skills for everybody. As much as I am a really good submission artist, and with anybody, I'll be able to finish them on the ground, I really want to show my standup."
"Yes, definitely we'll be doing it again," Champion said. "London is a fight Mecca. (There are) so many talented guys just in this area alone. You've got talent everywhere and it's just a matter of giving them a place to do it."
There were more than a few professional debuts on the card and London was well represented, giving the local crowd plenty of fighters to support even though many of them weren't able to find a win.
Despite the loss, Ludlow said finally getting an MMA match under her belt will help her rebound when she steps back into the cage in the future.

"It's terrifying to go into a cage, it Blue Nike Roshe Women takes a lot of guts. I'm proud of myself for that," Ludlow said afterwards. " Obviously the results were not what I wanted. I feel like I was doing really well in the first part of the round then I feel like my nose was bleeding and I was panicking a little bit. I've never had anybody bust up my nose before so I think that kind of distracted me a little bit. (House is) a great fighter, she hits like a truck."
First Provincial Fighting Championships can be labeled a success
Ludlow didn't look out of place when the bell rang, heading straight for her opponent, happy to stand and trade with her kickboxing skills.
