Tim Kennedy has been out of action for over a year now, having not competed since last September when he dropped a controversial loss to Yoel Romero. However, he still remains ranked at No. 6, and has expressed interest in a fight with Belfort.
Kennedy has set his sights on dismantling all of the cheaters in the sport, and the bout would make quite a bit of sense for “The Phenom”. The Brazilian needs to knock off a few contenders in order to be in title talks, and a fight with Kennedy would give him that opportunity.
