White: Kennedy Not a Crowd Pleaser but Dominant
Tim Kennedy’s performance didn’t blow the roof of Quebec’s Colisse Pepsi but it was effective enough for a convincing win.
At Wednesday night’s TUF Nations finale, it was Kennedy who grinded his way through to a unanimous decision over Michael Bisping.
In the post-fight media scrum, UFC president Dana White echoed those sentiments.
“It wasn’t a crowd-pleaser, not a fight where people at home are going ‘woo hoo, this is awesome,’ but the guy put on a pretty dominant performance. (Bisping) got dominated,” White said. “Kennedy did exactly what he said. Bisping wouldn’t throw any punches because he didn’t want to get taken down again. He didn’t realize how dominant (Kennedy) was gonna be on the ground. It was a classic example of what happens when a guy gets taken down and has great jiu-jitsu like that. It’s gonna clam a guy up and he’s gonna get gun shy and not throw punches.”
