Hey, I know he was coaching a team in the IFL and fought there, but does this mean he's coming back to the UFC?

Wait a minute...was he coaching a team or did he just do a fight for them? Regardless...you get the point.

He has said he was taking a break, but then fought in the IFL. But Dana has said he won't let UFC fighters coach in the IFL, so if he get's active again, it probably won't be in the UFC.

I would think he'd want his next fight to be something special, and not just a "warm-up/comeback" fight which is what it would be in the UFC. (It's his 100th fight)

I think the UFC is extremely serious about there exclusivity clauses. It's my guess if he's on TV for the UFC, then he's back with them.

As far as I know, the coaches can bring anyone in TUF to help coach. As long as any putative contractor (or Horns) does not object to his appearance on the show, then I don't see this as anything but an appearance.

Same here. He's one of my favorite fighters. Always has been, always will be.

He was never a coach in the IFL, or even officially affiliated with any team... he faught in a superfight.

I think that just lets us know the door is always open, and the UFC is more than willing to hilight him on TUF. Funny Corey didn't know who he was... which is cute but ignorant at the same time. It kind of annoys me when sport stars aren't fans of their own sport.

Man, I really wanted to see that Horn/Tanner fight... that had classic written all over it.

I like Horn but, I just don't see where he would fit in the UFC at this point. He would make an excellent IFL coach though.

He would fit perfect in the 185 division, tapping out middleweights. lol

Damn right... Horn is a very under-rated fighter (by some)... The guy's an ass-kicker, always has been... I can truely say that he is one of the only fighter I was an instant fan of just becuase of watching him lose... First time I ever seen him fight was when he took on the then-indestructable Frank Shamrock, and seeing his scrawny-ass walking into the ring, I thought he had no chance, and he showed an excellent account of him self
