Horn to Replace Leites Against Marquardt

Longtime mixed martial arts veteran Jeremy Horn will return to the UFC in February when he takes on Nate Marquardt in a middleweight bout at UFC 81: Breaking Point, which takes place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on February 2nd.

Horn will be replacing Thales Leites who was forced to pull out of his scheduled bout against Marquardt after suffering a broken hand during a training session earlier in the week.

The UFC made the announcement on their official website earlier this afternoon.

Horn has not fought in the UFC since submitting Chael Sonnen with an armbar at UFC 60. Horn was released from his contract shortly after the fight. In three separate stints in the UFC, Horn has racked up a winning record of 6-4.

Widely known as one of the most experienced fighters in the sport, Horn ranks third right behing Travis Fulton and Shonie Carter in terms of total career fights. Horn’s last fight was a losing effort against Jorge Santiago at an Art of War show in September. Santiago submitted Horn with a triangle choke in the second round of their fight.

They Never Came to Fruition

After watching UFC 79 and hearing all of the discussion about how Matt Hughes and Matt Serra were originally supposed to fight but Serra pulled out with an injury, I got to thinking. It wasn’t the first time that a situation like that occurred.

So I sat down and did some research. There were actually a good number of fights in the UFC that were signed and slated to happen but ended up not taking place for one reason or another. The final number was a lot higher than I expected so I went ahead and narrowed the list down to the fights that would have been the best if they were to happen at the time.

So here they are. I’ve sorted them starting with the most recent and excluding Hughes-Serra. Each instance is pretty interesting.

Evan Tanner vs Jeremy Horn (UFC 59): The two long-time MMA veterans were set to clash at UFC 59 in what was unofficially an “elimination” bout for the two of them. Horn had split his two return bouts in the UFC while Tanner had lost two straight, including his middleweight title. The bout would have been an interesting chess match between two slick grapplers but Horn ended up pulling out after injuring his back during training. Justin Levens replaced Horn and Tanner went on to submit Levens in the first round of their bout. Horn was released shortly after defeating Chael Sonnen at UFC 60.

Matt Hughes vs Karo Parisyan (UFC 56): After losing to Georges St. Pierre at UFC 46, Parisyan went ahead and racked up three straight wins over Nick Diaz, Chris Lytle, and Matt Serra to earn a title shot against then-champion Matt Hughes. The anticipated welterweight showdown was set to headline the event until Parisyan was forced to pull out of the fight after suffering an elbow injury during training. Joe Riggs stepped in for Parisyan and ended up failing to make weight, costing him his shot at the title. Hughes would go on to submit Riggs in a non-title bout and wouldn’t defend his belt again until UFC 63, making it over a full year since the welterweight title was contested. To this day, Parisyan is still yearning for another shot at the title.

News and Notes

- A Croatian news outlet reported yesterday in an interview with Mirko Cro Cop that his next fight would take place at UFC 75, the organization’s next event to be held in England. However in the latest issue of Japanese magazine Kamipro, Cro Cop’s manager Ken Imai stated that his client will most likely fight on the undercard of Randy Couture and Gabriel Gonzaga’s heavyweight title bout at UFC 74 in August.

- The Fight Network is reporting that Nippon Gaishi Hall, the proposed site for the PRIDE Lightweight Grand Prix scheduled to begin on July 16th, has now removed the event from it’s calendar.

- Kestutis Arbocius has been stripped of the Heavyweight King of Pancrase title because of inactivity. The title has been declared vacant and will be on the line at Pancrase’s 2007 Rising Tour on May 30th when Tatsuya Mizuno and Assuerio Silva battle for it.

- Art of War 3 has been moved from June 30th to August 18th according to the Houston Chronicle:

Art of War 3 is being postponed until later this summer.

The promoter was having trouble clearing enough homes to make a pay-per-view telecast fly and decided to move the show, originally scheduled for June 30 at American Airlines Center in Dallas, to August.

The new date is Aug. 18. Pedro Rizzo versus Jeff Monson remains the show headliner, with Jeremy Horn, Carlo Prater and Jake Shields also on the card.

The date of the event has also been changed on the official site...

Jeremy Horn Set to Return

UFC and PRIDE veteran Jeremy “Gumby” Horn will make his return to the ring after a short lived retirement. Earlier this year Horn suffered a KO loss to the hands of Matt Lindland and after the fight he stated that he’d be retiring and he’d consider his options in a year. Well folks, it looks like Mr. Horn had second thoughts about his decision…

Jeremy Horn will return to the ring when he faces UFC veteran Falaniko Vitale on the January 19th IFL card. The card was originally expected to be headlined by a bout between Ivan Salaverry and Eduardo Pamplona but with the UFC’s recent purchase of the WFA, Salaverry has been put in a situation where he will be required to fight for the UFC only.

Jeremy Horn Retires

Today Jeremy Horn announced that he is retiring from fighting. He has stated that he will take at least one-year off and then he weigh his options at that time.

During his time off he’ll continue to train fighters and help teammate’s prepare for upcoming fights.
