Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video: Dan Hornbuckle vs. Nick Thompson @ Sengoku 10

(Props: CagePotato reader "Numa." Fight starts at the 6:00 mark.)

It’s official: Dan Hornbuckle is the Real Deal. The Hammond, Indiana-based fighter improved his record to 19-2 (17 wins by stoppage) with his TKO victory over Nick Thompson earlier today at Sengoku 10th Battle. As you’ll see in the video above, Thompson was able to hang with Hornbuckle for most of the first round, but "the Handler" started to find his range by the end, and he went in for the kill in round two. Skip to the 14:55 mark to see Hornbuckle end the fight by landing about a dozen unanswered blows on Thompson. Directly afterwards, he demanded a Sengoku belt to go along with his pile of small-show titles. Sengoku doesn’t currently have a welterweight champion; expect to see Hornbuckle in a title fight in the near future.

After the jump: Hornbuckle’s one-round rager against Courtney Ray in the finals of an eight-man HOOKnSHOOT tournament in March 2007.

(Fight starts at the 2:27 mark.)

Was that Miguel Torres' mullet at the end of the video talking to Hornbuckle?

So i wish I would of recorded sengoku 10 instead of staying up to watch it...there was literally so much time wasted in between when Schultzy got KTFO'd and the other fights. WTF. It annoyed me, Ben you should write something on that because it may have been worse than the photoshoot with Fedor at Affliction II.

I'd never heard of Hornbuckle before he sent Gono back to visit his dead ancestors (as Guy Mezger put it), but this cat is fun to watch.

Cage Potato better make it their business to keep track of this guy. I'd like to know a little more about him.

I caught a looping stream of this event on JustinTV. Wow, did it look sparsely attended. Really a sad venue. Oh well, the fights I was able to catch were very entertaining.
