Video Jeremy Horn Told To Hold Back Against Dan "The Wolfman"
As the Miletich fighters began to carve out a reputation as the baddest men on the planet, there was a chord of sadism being thrummed through Bettendorf. Though some pockets of the country were beginning to catch up with these early MMA forerunners, the Midwest -- Monte Cox’s theater for promoting cards -- was a land littered with casualties.

To level the playing field at least a little bit, Cox and company would begin to impose restrictions on fighters heading into bouts, just to keep things interesting. Fighters like Horn, who himself exists as an active anthology of fight game lore with 116 professional MMA bouts, were subjected to this kind of whimsy and experimentation.

"I would corner Jeremy Horn with Matt Hughes, and we’d be sitting in a corner and Matt would go, ‘Monte, what should we not let old Jeremy do today?’" Cox says. "And I’d say, ‘Well, this guy’s not that good, we can’t give him everything. And Hughes says, ‘I agree, what if the first round he can just do kicks?’ And Jeremy, who’s just about to go out there says, ‘Shut the fuck up!’ We shake our heads. ‘Nope, first round, just kicks.’"

This was in 2001, when Horn fought Dan Theodore at Ultimate Wrestling Minnesota in just his 66th professional fight. Two months earlier, he’d fought Ricardo Arona in Japan. Before then he’d already fought the likes of Randy Couture, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Chuck Liddell, whom he choked out at UFC 19 in Bay St. Louis, Miss.

Theodore, in other words, was a potboiler.

"So Jeremy’s holding Theodore in the corner, kicking him the entire round, and when it ends he comes back and says, ‘Come on guys,’" Cox remembers. "Hughes says, ‘Maybe we should give him something else. We can’t just let you punch him, because that’ll end it right away -- but what about knees?’ Jeremy just mutters, ‘You bastards.’ So he turns around, goes back out and fights a little bit, kick, kick, gets him in a Thai clinch and knocks him out with a knee. Over."

There are endless stories like this one from those glory days, when the axis of power belonged to Bettendorf.

"The funny thing was that Theodore goes on the Underground afterwards," Cox said. "He writes, ‘You know, I did a lot better against Jeremy than I thought. The first round was back and forth, he didn’t really land anything, my defense was good,’ and all this. And we’re sitting there like ... you dumb ass."

Me and my girlfriend had a couple beers with Dan one time.

He catches a lot of ribbing but he's an alright guy IMO.

RE: Jeremy Horn Told To Hold Back Against Dan "The Wolfman"
Dan has got a lot of troll in him.

I interviewed him on the Tapout Radio podcast many years ago, he was an okay guy. Everyone has to find their niche in this fucked up world, and he built a resume based on non speaking roles in tv shows, a wwe trial video, and a fight against Yuki Kondo. I don't think it's gotten him very far however.


He's now claiming to be the illegitimate son of Steven Seagal.
