    Tim Kennedy signs with UFC, whos 1st for him?

    Post  rudeboyben84 on Thu Oct 13, 2011 2:40 pm

    Its not official but UFC have added Tim Kennedy's profile to their website and on Twitter he changed his employer to the UFC... Ive put 2 and 2 togeather and reckon he is the next champ to move over.

    I wonder who they throw him in with 1st. I cant see him getting an imidiate title shot, its not like he is an established champ with a few defences under his belt but I still see him being a top contender.

    My initial thought is to match him up with Belfort because style wise it would be spectacular to watch.

    Maby he can fight Anderson after Sonnen takes him belt? Laughing

    No surprise he has gone over especially with background in the U.S Army so Zuffa can expl...I mean...yeah what do I mean. Laughing

    He will be a good gate keeper think he beats the mid level fighters like Bisping & co though.

    Doh I mixed him and Luke Rockhold up! Laughing Laughing

    I though Rockhold and Belfort would be a great fight

    Kennedy vs Stann maby? Im sure they could sell that fight. I agree Kennedy will be a tough gatekeeper, I could see him beating Stann and Leben but dont think he would get past Munoz or Okami.

    I'm sure Okami would be a great idea I can imagine a few Pearl Harbour barbs being thrown in the build up by Zuffa. A shame Siyar Bahadurzada now fights at welterweight now as as they could really sell a fight with him and Stann or Kennedy.

    Rockhold vs Belfort could be a fun fight If Vitor can not get him out earlier I feel he will be in for a very long night.

    Kennedy v Stann at the next fight for the troops would be huge for both guys. If they ever do another fight for the troops.

    Belfort would be a good match up and we all know Kennedy's game plan would be to wear Vitor down and hope Vitor tires.

    Bisping would be a good option too, decision written all over that I reckon. Dunno who to tho

    I think Sonnen will want a piece of the Cunt as well after he beats Anderson into a pulp and buries Vitor where he stands.

    Superman Punch has it spot on. Kennedy vs Stann at a special Fight For The Troops. Simply has to happen. US Army vs US Marine. I think it'd be an excellent fight as well. Two very tough gentlemen.

    Stann - kennedy would be a great fight,especially,like what has been mentioned,a fight for the troops event,but I also think Belcher would make a good first UFC fight for Kennedy.
