Last night I tried to explain the enigma of Tim Kennedy to someone that doesn’t follow MMA. It started off with me telling her that Tim Kennedy used to kill people as part of his profession, and in the meantime he uses his downtime manifest a mean shrimp ceviche. If people only knew how much Jason Nawara appreciated Kennedy, then a long string of restraining orders would follow. To say Jason has a man crush on Tim Kennedy is an understatement. The dude would have an artificial uterus implanted in his body in order to host Tim Kennedy’s babies. Imagine that. Actually, don’t imagine that. That’s just horrible.
Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy goes down on July 14th at the Rose Garden in Portland, Oregon — minutes away from the harsh wastelands of West Linn, Oregon. We caught up with Luke Rockhold to get his take on his second Strikeforce middleweight title defense, this time against undefeated IFLer, Tim Kennedy. That’s right, the IFL never die. Check out the video below — or die trying. Alternatively, you can just check out the video and not have death involved.
