Kennedy Calls Out Lawler, Wants Fight At 170 For Welterweight Strap
Tim Kennedy has managed to keep himself at the forefront of MMA News headlines with his constant trash talking and calling out of fighters. Today is no different, the former Strikeforce title contender has now called out Robbie Lawler for a rematch for the welterweight title should Lawler defeat Hendricks in their rematch.
He spoke with Steph Daniels of BloodyElbow:
“[Welterweight] is definitely still in consideration. Robbie Lawler is going to be fighting Johny Hendricks again. Lawler is a guy that I’ve fought before and we had a really great fight. I see Robbie getting that title and then I’m coming after him. I don’t know when this would happen, to be honest. There’s a lot going on right now. I’ve got a fight in front of me on September 27th and there’s a possibility I could need to be ready in December. If that doesn’t happen, and Joe Silva wanted to have a Strikeforce guys title eliminator series of sorts, I don’t know…maybe I could drop down and get a title shot there within a fight? I don’t know. We’ll have to see how the two divisions play out.”
