A match-up of UFC veterans between mixed martial arts legend Jeremy Horn and up-and-comer Jake Rosholt appears to be set for the upcoming King of the Cage (KOTC) event from Detroit, Mich., on April 16.
Rosholt tweeted the news earlier tonight.
Rosholt (7-2) and Horn (84-19-5) have both compiled an undefeated record since their recent UFC release; 1-0 and 4-0 respectively.
The act by the UFC of cutting Rosholt following his submission loss to Kendall Grove at UFC 106 was a surprise to many at the time, but the four-time All-American wrestler from Oklahoma State University rebounded nicely last weekend with a submission victory of his own over Rudy Lindsey at a X-Treme Fighting League event.
The 27-year-old went 1-2 under the UFC banner -- defeating Chris Leben while dropping bouts to Dan Miller along with the aforementioned Grove -- after winning his one and only fight in the WEC before their middleweight division folded.
Horn, seven years the elder of his KOTC adversary, is a veteran of more than 100 professional mixed martial arts contests, spanning the course of 14 years, and will be coming into the bout riding a four-fight win streak with each fight ending via submission in the opening frame.
"Gumby" is of course known for his submission game, as over half of his victories have ended with his opponent tapping out.
Jeremy will have the clear advantage in that aspect of the match considering Jake's only two defeats have come due to submission.
The King of the Cage event will air live on HDNet from Cobo Arena on Friday, April 16, from Detroit, Michigan.
