In this episode, Tim and Doc talk with two MMA icons: Trevor Prangley, and Jeremy Horn. They discuss the fate of the modern world, and what it means to live as a Sheepdog.
Originally from Cape Town South Africa, Trevor Prangley is recognized as one of the true pioneers of early MMA. Feared and respected by his opponents, he is known outside the cage as a true gentleman, with the heart of a warrior. When not working with Tim and Doc as an unarmed combative instructor with Sheepdog Response, he can either be found elk hunting, or spreading his wealth of MMA knowledge at Trevor Prangley’s American Kick Boxing Academy in Coeur d’Alene Idaho.
Jeremy Horn is a true legend of MMA. His career includes the UFC, Bellator, Pancrase, Pride, among others. He has 120 professional fights, 91 victories, with 79 by submission or knockout! Jeremy is the consummate Sheepdog, constantly challenging himself in the gym and at the training range. He is currently the owner and operator of Jeremy Horn’s Elite Performance MMA, in Sandy Utah.
Tim Kennedy’s legend began at his local Army recruiter’s office on September 12th, 2001. His training to earn his Green Beret was featured in the book “Chosen Soldier.” Kennedy is now a Ranger qualified Special Forces Sniper with deployments in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and multiple other deployments around the world.
