Former King of the Cage heavyweight and light heavyweight champion Tony “Kryptonite” Lopez had gone through a rough patch the past couple years heading into 2015.

Following a seven-fight winning streak, Lopez went on to lose nine of his next twelve bouts and both his titles before finally turning things around this year with back-to-back wins.

“I thought maybe that was it and it was the end of my career, but in 2015 I decided to give it one last run and I started to train better and do all these things I should have been doing back in the day,” Lopez told MMAWeekly.com.

“The first fight was a test to see if I still got it and can perform, and I got the win and it boosted my confidence up. The second fight was a heavyweight title fight and I figured if I beat him that I’m on the right track, and I ended up submitting him in the second round.”

Lopez (36-17) will look to keep his winning streak going on Saturday in Hinton, Okla., against one of MMA’s all-time greats in Jeremy Horn (91-21-5) at SCS 25.
