MMA veteran Jeremy Horn battles ‘tough’ Tony Lopez this Saturday night at SCS 25

By SteveJuon @angrymarks on Mar 25, 2015

With a professional fight record spanning three decades, the 39-year-old Jeremy Horn is one of the most remarkably durable MMA fighters today, having amassed over 100 total fights (and 90+ wins) in his career to date. On March 28th he goes for his fifth win in a row against Tony “Kryptonite” Lopez.

Jeremy Horn can safely say he’s been everywhere and done everything there is to do in mixed martial arts (MMA).

With over 100 fights in his career thus far (and over 90 wins) he could rightly be called a “crafty veteran” at 39 years old. He’s aging gracefully and winning decisively, taking a victory in each of his last four fights with a first-round submission.

His next opponent will look to put that winning streak to an end.

Tony “Kryptonite” Lopez finished his last two opponents by technical knockout (TKO) and arm-triangle choke, so he won’t be afraid to stand with Horn or follow him to go to the ground, Horn’s bread and butter.

MMAmania.com talked to the longtime fight veteran about his upcoming bout for SCS 25 at the Sugar Creek Casino in Hinton, Oklahoma, along with how he maintains his longevity in a sport where young and hungry lions are always on the prowl.

He’ll go for his fifth straight win defending the SCS light heavyweight title in Hinton, Oklahoma, on Saturday, March 28th at the Sugar Creek Casino. If you can’t attend live the show is also available for $15 on GoFightLive.tv. The complete audio of our interview with Horn is below.

Meet Jesse Finney, the man who helped Bellator book Kimbo Slice vs. Ken Shamrock

By SteveJuon @angrymarks on Mar 19, 2015, MMA Mania

The CEO of Shamrock FC, Jesse Finney, is a man who knows how to make things happen, whether it’s for himself (6-1 as a pro) or when it comes to bringing major mixed martial arts (MMA) shows to St. Louis, Missouri.

Jesse Finney is a name that looms large over the MMA scene in the Midwest, but that’s not because of his 6-1 record as a professional fighter.

Finney’s real talent is his ability to broker deals, to get people to work together, and to make connections that make things happen. In fact, Finney helped get the Kimbo Slice vs. Ken Shamrock fight for Bellator approved in the state of Missouri.

In his recent interview with MMAmania.com, Finney talked about how the deals get done. Being the owner and CEO of Shamrock FC, Finney is no stranger to putting together big cards, including the Shamrock FC Showdown on March 21st at the River City Casino in St. Louis, Missouri.

In the meantime, you can listen to the audio from our interview with Finney below, and check out Shamrock FC’s website for more details about its next big show on March 21st. If you can’t be there live, you can still watch the fights via GoFightLive.

Rapper Fat Joe: MMA fighters ‘are pound-for-pound the toughest athletes in the world’

By Marc Raimondi @marc_raimondi on Mar 13, 2015, MMA Fighting

Fat Joe is a boxing guy going way back. He and Big Pun were two of the first rappers to ever walk a boxer out to the ring when they did it for Felix Trinidad before his bout with Oscar De La Hoya in 1999.

But the Bronx born hip-hop artist has a lot of love for MMA, too. He’ll be performing at the House of Fame Mixed Martial Arts event in Coral Gables, Fla., on Friday night. The card is being billed USA vs. Cuba and will feature American athletes pitted against Cubans.

“These guys are pound-for-pound the toughest athletes in the world,” Fat Joe told Ariel Helwani on Monday’s edition of The MMA Hour. “And there’s no way around it.”
