Just in case you have been living under a rock or on a rock in the middle of Asscrackistan, Tim Kennedy’s opponent for the UFC’s Fight for the Troops 3 (FFTT3) at Ft. Campbell, KY stood him up to fight Mark Munoz due to an injury of his previous opponent and all-time Ranger Up favorite Michael Bisbing <insert sarcasm>. This is the second time this has happened over the course of the last month and Tim is a little hurt. Why doesn’t anyone want to fight a Special Forces Operator in front of an entirely Army crowd?
Tim did not take the news lightly and to be quite honest was a little hurt as referenced in this tweet last night:
That hurt lasted all of about 10 minutes as Tim started campaigning for a new opponent (I think he really, really wants to fight at FFTT3). Having the balls the size of Rhode Island, Tim began calling out every single middleweight on the roster starting with legendary UFC fighter Rich Franklin:
Tim doesn’t stop there and continues:
At this point, Tim flips his lid and goes all “crazy-eyes in a wig in a bathtub” taunting everyone:
Tim even goes after Wanderlei Silva:
Tim then decided to pull all the punches and launch at Nick Diaz (even though there is little chance he would show up, anywhere, anytime):
The Brazilians haven’t been that reliable lately but Tim is willing to take that third strike:
This continued throughout Friday night and into Saturday with his latest attempt at securing someone to square off against, Tim hits up Shogun Rua (another Brazilian I might add):
There are exactly 39 days until the UFC’s Fight for the Troops and poor Tim doesn’t have an opponent for arguably one of his biggest fights of his career. Who do you think should step up for the main event?
