Tim Kennedy wants to punish Michael BispingPosted on May 20, 2011, 09:05 AM by Anton Gurevich
“He walks away with a win, a TKO, from blasting the dude in the face, illegally. Just drives me insane, like it’s the worse thing that can happen in the sport. As a fellow athlete, I think somebody has to hold him responsible for that. If the promotion won’t do it, let’s let the other athletes do it. I’m an athlete. I’ll step up to the plate and say, hey you’re wrong, you fight unfair, you cheat, let me show you how real guys fight.
I would love nothing more than to go out there put on a great display, put on a great fight. I’m confident I’d beat him and just take that fight purse and hand it right over. I think it’s not only a demonstration of how bad I want to fight the best guys, but it’s like a contrast of where he is. He’ll go out there and cheat to get a win. I’ll go out there to fight the fight, and then take my fight purse and give it to someone more important than me.”
Former Strikeforce Middleweight title challenger Tim Kennedy continued his campaign for a fight against Michael Bisping, this time in an interview to MMAWeekly.com. Kennedy joins Nate Marquardt, Chael Sonnen and many other UFC Middleweights, who decided to call out "The Count" following his controversial victory over Jorge Rivera back at UFC 127. Tim Kennedy (13-3 in MMA) successfully recovered from Unanimous Decision loss against Jacare Souza by choking out Melvin Manhoef in March at Strikeforce: Feijao vs. Henderson. Rivera and Kennedy are close friends, sharing the same management, sponsors and training camps.
