Horie (9-2) will be looking to make it back to back wins after tasting victory at Pancrase 312 earlier this year. He was knocked out at UFC 240 in 2019 and then released by the promotion after just one fight.
Four fights have already been confirmed for Pancrase 317 including a rearranged flyweight bout between Ryuichi Miki and Yusuke Ogikubo. That is one of several matches that have been moved from the cancelled Pancrase 315 card.
Among them is a lightweight match between Kosuke Kindaichi and Sung Kwon Kim. Meanwhile in the strawweight division Hiroaki Ijima faces Yuta Miyazawa
Pancrase 316 is set for the same venue on July 24th. It will be headlined by a lightweight fight between Yusuke Kasuya and Hiroto Uesako.
