Career and Personal Narration
Jeremy Horn is a Nebraska native who grew up in Omaha. The star was a troubled kid who found solace in martial arts, something he began studying when he was 12 years old. Matt Anderson and Sid, as well as his younger sibling Marshall Horn, are his half-brothers. Ruth, the boys’ single mother, reared all of them. He began practicing with his brother Matt, a rambunctious boy, while he was 12 years old. Before becoming a full-time MMA fighter, Horn used to be in the construction business.
He is recognized for his stamina, having fought 119 times in his lifetime, and wrestling abilities, winning 53 of his 91 battles by submission.
Horn received his early boxing training from Robert Bussey, the founder of Warrior International, and earned an RBWI black belt through Bussey in 1992. Even though many claims he possesses black belt grade jiu-jitsu, he was never graded in BJJ.
Jeremy Horn began his pro debut in 1996 and has since collected a career record of over 100 MMA matches, spending most of his formative years with Miletich Fighting Systems in Iowa. He has fought almost everyone in upper MMA and has arguably forgotten much more about the sport than anybody else.
Lacking the big title from his career
Horn has still not won a big title in his lifetime, notwithstanding victories over champions. He fought for two UFC championships, losing his Middleweight Championship against Frank Shamrock in 1998 and the Light Heavyweight Championship to Chuck Liddell in 2005. He has faced at least eight Brazilians and has never won a battle against them.
Horn won the Elite 1 Heavyweight Championship, the IFC Middleweight Championship, the 5150 Combat League Middleweight Championship, the Sugar Creek Showdown Heavyweight Championship, the KOTC Light Heavyweight Championship, and the TKO and UCC 2 Championships, among other titles (MW and LHW).
Horn has never seen himself as a pro boxer like that was his job. He has always thought of himself as someone who enjoys working out. The boxer puts in as much training time as he can. It just so occurred that he got to fight and earn money, but all he needed to do was the train.
If it weren’t for the money, he would have been training as much as he could around a full-time job. Horn never thought of it as if it were his career, aiming to get to a specific point in it. To him, it was a case of, “Well, he is in the gym all day anyhow.”
It just so happens that he gets to compete worldwide to make enough money that he doesn’t have to look for work. He wonders why bother with MMA if you do not even love it well enough to practice it, whether there seems to be cash at the end of the rainbow or not.
