Tim Kennedy is never one to shy away from speaking his mind. After the UFC announced their partnership with Reebok, Kennedy spent the next several months refusing to support the deal while he sat on the sidelines.
Part of the deal between the UFC and Reebok stated that fighters would get a certain percentage of money when fans bout that fighter’s “fight kit.” Kennedy went as far as to tell fans not to purchase his fight kit because he made pennies from the purchase.
When Kennedy announced that he would be returning to the Octagon, he informed fans that he was gunning for PED users and TRT abusers. He quickly set his sights on Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort, however no fight was booked.
Now, Kennedy is zeroing in on a fight with Anderson Silva at UFC 200.

It is important to mention that Belfort is currently slated to fight Ronaldo ‘Jacare’ Souza at UFC 198 on May 14th in what many believe to be a #1 contender fight.
