GSP has one of the strongest resumes of opponents that I can think of, has he faced anyone in the UFC who wasn't at least arguably a Top 10 fighter at the time they fought him?

Here's some of his notable wins: Chuck Liddell (sub), Gilbert Yvel (UD), Travis Fulton (tko), Forrest Griffin (KO), David Loiseau (sub), Chael Sonnen 3x (tko, sub, sub), Josh Burkman (sub), Court McGee (UD).

Then take a look at some of the other guys he fought and lost to: Frank Shamrock (sub), Rodrigo Nogueira (UD), Ricardo Arona 2x(SD, MD), Randy Couture (UD), Renato Sobral (UD), Anderson Silva (UD), Chuck Liddell (tko), Matt Lindland (tko), Jorge Santiago (sub), Nate Marquardt (sub), Rousimar Palhares (UD), Thales Leites (SD).

Win or lose, successful or not it's hard to say that anyone has faced more diverse or better competition than Jeremy Horn. Is there truly anyone else?

So basically...War Horn!
So many forget about guys like Horn and it's a shame. While hes fought a "who's who" of mma (i think he recently fought Thales Leites) I think a far as strength of schedule BJ Penn has had tougher comp.
Horn is a warrior! I see he has a fight coming up too. I'll make sure I check it out.

Yep. Guys like him do not get enough respect.

Surely he would make an amazing coach!

I loved when he was being ragdolled by Palhares he started having a conversation with Rogan who was announcing. I guess after 100+ fights nothing really phases you.

On a personal note, I met him after UFC 30 - he was just hanging around the arena waiting on the rest of MFS. Even though he had lost earlier to Sinocic he was incredibly nice and just a good guy. War Horn.

my first fight with Horn in 2003 was like my 7th fight. It was probably his 100 and somethingth fight. Was very hard, I got cut and had blood in my eyes. I lost by split decision... That fight was worth 20 fights of experience really. I rematched him in UFC that went to my favor. My opponent is my greatest teacher..

Horn definitely is one of the greatest warriors in history of MMA

What makes it even crazier is that Horn was often fighting against elite people one or two weight classes above him. Horn deserves a lot of respect as one of the pioneers of the sport.
