More than 100 Fights into His Career, Jeremy Horn Taking it Day by Day
Mick Hammond, March 28, 2015, MMA Weekly
For a fighter who has become almost defined by how often he competes – sometimes multiple times in a single day on numerous occasions – for veteran Jeremy Horn to take two years off from the sport would have been unthinkable not too long ago.
But that’s exactly what Horn did in 2012 and 2013. But it’s not because he was banged up because of his 100-plus fights or anything, but rather to work on the business side of his life.
“The thing is, I wasn’t banged up to begin with,” Horn told MMAWeekly.com. “I’m never banged up or ever hurt.
“I wanted to take a little bit of time off so I could work on the gym and try to build up the program. When I’m fighting regularly it kind of takes a big hit, so I wanted to take that time off.”
Horn returned to fighting last year with victories over Dan McGlasson and Brian Imes, raising his current winning streak to four and giving him wins in 11 of his last 13 fights.
“It’s always good to fight,” said Horn. “I was always kind of anxious. I was training pretty regularly, but there’s a big difference between training regularly and training for a fight. It was nice to get back into it and do what I love to do.”
Horn (91-21-5) will kick off his 2015 on Saturday at SCS 25 in Hinton, Okla., against fellow former King of the Cage champion Tony “Kryptonite” Lopez (36-17) in a light heavyweight main event.
