    You have to respect a guy who will fight just for the sake of fighting. I don't think this guy ever turns down a fight even if its on short notice.

    this matchup interests me a lot more than the first one it think horn will be a great addition to the middle weight division… now with hendo, bisping, tanner, and horn the middle weight division looks a lot stronger and not weak at all.

    I haven't seen Horn in a while so i don't know…Nate is one of the top Middleweights right now so if Horn looks less than sharp it may not mean anything due to the time he had to train for Marquartd….I think this is a good fight and i honestly do not know who will win…DANp ask joe that guy knows what hes atlking about when it comes to MMA haha

    horn is a legend in mma with over 100 fights and only stopped twice in that 100.he does not have much power in his strikes but he is a very technical fighter.
