The last time UFC middleweight Tim Kennedy was in the Octagon, Johny Hendricks was the UFC welterweight champion, Jon Jones was the reigning pound for pound king, and Ronda Rousey was still the UFC women’s bantamweight champion.
Kennedy controversially lost the first fight of his career at UFC 178 at the hands of Yoel Romero. Fast forward two years and the popular middleweight is ready to return to the Octagon.
He took to Facebook reveal some info on his next fight, without giving away too much info:
“After this fight, you can’t say that I shouldn’t be the champion. The details of that have to wait for the UFC to tell you when, where and who. But I’m telling you, I’m fighting.”
“It’s going to be big,” he said. “Hopefully, Michael Bisping will stay the champ. If he beats Dan Henderson, he has no choice but to defend his title against me; I was the last guy to beat the breaks off him.”
With Yoel Romero’s suspension nearly up, could Kennedy return to the Octagon for a rematch with the only man to beat him?
