I feel like Tim Kennedy is trying to make himself into somewhat of a Chael Sonnen character, but he just sucks at it.

He is trying to be a nice guy/ funny guy version of a shit talker. It's not exactly taking yet.

So Kennedy is requesting a 5 Round fight?

I think making Kennedy the Main Event for Fight For The Troops has gotten to his brain container.
There is no way that this will be 5 Rounds. It's not for a belt and it's not for a top contender spot.
Even if it was for top contender it still would only be 3 Rounds. And I think Bisping could outpoint Kennedy in this one too.

No disrespect to Kennedy but he needs to beat someone ranked before I'll think he is deserving of a fight with Bisping.

I'm not even a Bisping fan, and I don't mean to disrespect Kennedy, but he hasn't earned a fight with Bisping yet. I think he's just trying to talk his way into it.

I don't understand why everyone feels he doesn't deserve a shot at Bisping. I'm not saying he's a world beater or anything but he has won 6 of his last 7. And Bisping is 2-2 in his last 4 fights. I agree it would be a big step up in competition for Kennedy. But I have to ask if not Kennedy who should fight Bisping ?

A bit wacko, but I think Dana respects stuff like this. It shows he wants tough fights and is ready (mentally, if nothing else).

I love this stuff in case some of you haven't seen this Bisping fires back.


Bloody Elbow's Stephanie Daniels spoke with Bisping about the Tim Kennedy rivalry, namely the tweet in question and like always, the Brit didn't hold back.


"I've fought the best athletes in the world, and some on short notice. If Tim Kennedy thinks he's going to be the person I'm scared of-this is the person that dresses up as a f*cking ballerina-he's crazy. He dresses like a woman on a regular basis just to get a bit of attention. It's just embarrassing. And for the record, I have many times spoken to Joe Silva and Dana White and said, ‘Listen, let me shut this guy up once and for all.' It comes down to their decision. He keeps going on like it's me, and that I have the ultimate say so. That decision basically comes down to Joe Silva, and they're trying to decide if I should waste one of my fight opportunities on a fighter of subpar caliber. They are weighing their options on whether it makes more sense to match me up with a better fighter to make the company more money, or if they should just let me get in there and beat the shit out of him for my own personal satisfaction. I'm hoping they go with the latter, and I get to beat the shit out of him on national TV."

He hopes to return from an eye injury that has kept his on the sidelines sometime around April. Though nothing is official at the moment, it's likely that the rivalry will be settled sometime in the near future.

Once the fight is booked, it'll be "put up or shut up" for both men.
