Why are they trying to make Tim Kennedy happen. Their is a very good chance that this will be the worst fight of the year.

Excited that Machida is dropping to 185. Not excited for this fight.

Beats Roger Gracie on the prelims, next fight he's headlining against Machida.


I just can't fathom why this matchup has been made, and this isnt even the 1st big name they've tried to give Kennedy either!

Gracie/Kennedy was an under-card fight...but they cut Roger Gracie and they move Tim Kennedy up to the main event.

It's called "fight for the troops" not "fight for the snobs at mmaforum" kennedy has more fans than you think. Besides, Machida has never fought at MW in his life. He's been run out of LHW by Phil Davis exactly like Stann and Boetch, why would he deserve a higher ranked opponent??

Tim Kennedy doesn't get the respect he deserves, he sure gave Jacare a tough fight, he can out-grapple Machida all night long...and probably will.

So the "fans" get to see another terrible Machida fight or Kennedy getting KTFO. And who the hell in the MW division isn't a 205 washout, Belfort, Sonnen, Munoz, Bisping, Boetsch, Franklin? Machida deserves a higher ranked opponent because Machida/Weidman is a fight that makes sense and their's nobody else in the 185lb division worth pushing into a title fight.

Oh yay 25 minutes of Kennedy pushing Machida against a fence. Tim Kennedy is a decent fighter and he can build himself up Alan Belcher style in the division but this fight is a dog of a fight. And when the smoke clears Kennedy could get cut and Machida could be the UFC's new "jon fitch".

I don't really get why they keep trying to give Tim Kennedy big fights.

But I know he's about to get slaughtered. Excited to see Lyoto finally at 185.

you think that they would want to give the ex- military guys winnable fights. I think Kennedy has a chance but me thinks he is getting slaughtered
