Interesting fight. In Brazil for obvious reasons.

Kennedy is tough but old young old Belfort is on a tear at the moment. Phone Post

I wonder if it's a situation where Kennedy was the only one to accept this fight. Vitor in Brazil? Yikes.

Kennedy can take a shot (not sure about a Vitor shot), has a good gas tank, and he's an enormous 185er. I guess it's possible?

Vitor would knock off another contender.

I dont like this fight, bad booking imo

1st of all Kennedy shouldn't be fighting a guy ranked as high as Vitor. Victor should be fighting Jacare if Jacare beats Okami or fighting Chael if he beats Shogun. He could also face Munoz if he beats Bisping. So there are several more options then Kennedy.

I like Tim Kennedy, dont get me wrong. He's a tough as nails & always comes forward. But he should be fighting a guy like Costa Philippou or even Uriah Hall if he beats Howard. And Kennedy could easily fight a guy like Okami or Munoz next but not Belfort.

Vitor is basically the number one contender that gets the winner of Weidman - Anderson II. Kennedy has a dangerous & smothering ground game that Vitor must avoid. I hope he can let fly those lighting combos to keep the upper hand cause if he doesn't, he's gonna be fighting a losing fight from his back. And then no title shot and that would be terrible for Vitor not to face Weidman. I would LOVE to see that fight someday!

Mousasi was offered the Vitor but turned it down cause he is hurt.

Also heard Costa wont fight Vitor in Brazil.

So that leaves only one fighter who is healthy, not booked and will take the fight in Brazil, Tim Kennedy.

What a complete joke. Makes NO sense.

So Mousasi doesn't deserve to fight Vitor, but Kennedy does? Vitor's juicing and yet is STILL afraid of Gegard. How pathetic.

Damn. I thought Rockhold was a bigger fight then Kennedy is. I'm not sure a win over Kennedy does much for him at all. Phone Post 3.0
