If you want to call someone out make sure they are ahead of you.

Does Kennedy want to go backwards? Leban is a mess and a pretty perfect style for Tim to beat.

Rockhold should consider himself a top 5 MW since he is the SF MW Champ. He stated in the past he wanted Bisping. Now he is calling out a guy they may have squeaked into the top 10 just recently?

At least Healy is calling out a higher ranked guy. But obvious he wants a FOTN bonus.

I have no problem calling a guy out if there is bad blood. Or if you seem to want their spot. Not guys ranked lower. Seems like every SF guy has called out his 1st fight, looking for very winnable fights as if they deserve to be showcased or something.
Conveniently, Leben just so happens to be looking for someone to fight, recently asking his Twitter followers for suggestions on his next opponent. Not surprisingly, Kennedy's name was at the forefront and the Greg Jackson disciple was quick to respond.
That doesn't sound like Kennedy randomly called out Leben, just that a bunch of people suggested him and he said he would be happy to take it.
