Tony Lopez Making the Most of Career Resurrection
Mick Hammond, March 28, 2015, MMA Weekly
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.
