Just read that Tim Kennedy is fighting Mayhem on the next HD fights card on the 15th.This is for sure the highest profile fight for an army fighter.

I know it is a rematch from a while ago but it is much more high profile this time.

Obviously I am a bit biased, but in my most un-biased attempt...

I have rolled with both and seen both fight.

This will not be a close fight in my opinion. Instead, this will be an introduction for many fans to Tim Kennedy. There is no way Tim gets submitted, his ground fighting/takedowns/ositional control are ar too much for Miller. There is no way Miller stands with Tim, he will get KO'ed. Tim is too fast and too strong.

Well it will certainly be a huge showcase for army fighters if he wins.

Jay,

While I agree fighting Mayhem Miller is a great venue, and HDNet has the potential backing to become a even larger venue down the road, I don't know if I would call it a "Huge Showcase". Not too take anything at all away from Tim's fight, as I think he is going to do awesome and will deserve to be considered one of the elite 185ers out there after this fight. I think the exposure Tim gets from the IFL is far greater than HDNet fights as tey exist today.

Still, we have some great fighters in the Army from a lot of differnt posts. Just from Bragg alone we have had soldiers total over 25 Pro fights in the last 15 months, including fights over K1 vets, UFC vets, etc.

What I mean, is while this is a great fight, venues like this are starting to become the norm, rather than the exception.

I am aware that this is becoming more common place but this is the biggest name that I am aware of.Kennedy did well in the IFL but hasn't fought as high profile a fighter as Mayhem (excluding the first time) IMO.
