Tim Kennedy has been left without an opponent for the second UFC pay-per-view event in a row.

Kennedy was scheduled to fight former UFC light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans at UFC 205 in New York earlier this month. However, Evans was unable to get a license to fight from the New York State Athletic Commission due to “irregular findings” from an MRI, according to Evans.

Kennedy and Evans were then rescheduled to compete in the Octagon at the next UFC pay-per-view event, UFC 206, which takes place in Toronto, Canada on December 10. However, Evans was once again unable to get a license to fight from the Ontario Athletic Commission. Evans has stated that he is “100% healthy,” but Kennedy is again left without an opponent.

Kennedy took to twitter to try and find an opponent like he did for UFC 205. The UFC middleweight called out some familiar names like he did at UFC 205 when he found out Evans was unable to compete.

Kennedy called out former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, who he also called out to compete at UFC 205.

“@SpiderAnderson I know it’s been a minute since you won a fight. I might be an easy match up. Bad wrestling, horrible striking. #ufc206 ?”

Kennedy also took a stab at Vitor Belfort.

“@vitorbelfort #ufc206 needs another flight. I’ll even do a catchweight to compensate for your dad body? #postUSADA”

Then Kennedy went on to get a fight with some of the UFC fighters already living in Canada.

“@patrick_cote hey how is the weather up there(said in Canadian accent)? Wanted to see if you were interested in getting on the Toronto card?”

Cote replied that he just had elbow surgery and was out for couple of months. But, perhaps the most entertaining call out was Kennedy’s tweet to former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar.

“@BrockLesnar #ufc206 needs you. I won’t beat you up too bad. You could even do some hunting in Canada after the fight.”
