ISIS Threatens To Kill Tim Kennedy


ISIS is going after Special Forces soldier and UFC middleweight fighter Tim Kennedy. Kennedy is currently working with the FBI after some “recent credible threats” against him surfaced by the Islamic State group.

“Just spoke to the FBI regarding some recent credible threats towards me by #ISIS,” Kennedy wrote Wednesday evening on his official Facebook page. “They were not overly thrilled with my response … ‘Let those cowards come.’”

Kennedy served in the 7th Special Forces Group and is now a sergeant first class with the Texas National Guard. He mentioned that he usually gets five to 10 threats a day on his social media accounts by the group.

The FBI reached out to Kennedy on Wednesday to inform him that they’re investigating the threats.

“Apparently a couple of them were legitimate in trying to, from what the FBI said, plan stuff,” Kennedy told Army Times.

“They said, ‘Are you aware of this stuff?’ I said, ‘Yes.’ They said, ‘We think this is somewhat credible,’” Kennedy said. “Then I said, ‘I’m kind of desensitized to this stuff, so maybe you should tell me what my level of alarm should be.’”

Kennedy explained that the definition of terrorism is, and he put it perfectly.

“What’s the definition of terrorism?” Kennedy said. “It’s to achieve an objective through the use of force and fear. These are just nasty, evil, disgusting human beings who disrespect human life. I teach people how to live with threats like this. Who would I be to be cowering to a bunch of gutless cowards acting like a bunch of tough guys online?”

Kennedy is 4-1 in his last five bouts and last competed in September of 2014 against Yoel Romero at UFC 178, which he lost by third-round TKO. He supposedly wanted to fight Vitor Belfort next, but with no fight announcement, it’s unclear when the next time we will see Kennedy back inside the octagon.
