Submissions, Melvins kryptonite
Guess MMA wasn’t man enough for Tim Kennedy. The scariest man in Strikeforce, besides Cris Cyborg, is planning to go back to his beloved Army. After being sidelined by Strikeforce for no apparent reason he got tired and wants back in the shit.
“If I’m not overseas, I want to fight. If I’m not in uniform, I want to fight. Let’s make this absolutely, totally crystal clear. Where’s everyone else from Strikeforce? ‘I like fighting if I’m not overseas.’
I can understand, vaguely, where he is coming from. He is the best of the best in the Army, you basically play him in Call of Duty or Medal of Honor and if he was half robot he’d be Master Chief.
“I feel like I’m wasting my time if I’m not in the cage because I’m a sniper, I’m a Ranger, and I’m a Green Beret. I’ve been to every cool-guy school that (U.S.) Special Forces has. I’m completely wasting my life away if I’m not taking an opportunity to be in a cage. If I’m not in the cage, I’m going to go back to Iraq and Afghanistan. That’s just how it’s going to work.”
Saturday after choking Melvin Manhoef back to kickboxing he called out Former EXC Middleweight Champion Robbie Lawler. With a win over Lawler (who’s only a few steps above Manhoef in the terrible ground game department) he might get another shot at the title … right when he’s set to redeploy. Awesome.
