Last week UFC President Dana White reported that he was trying to make a match between Vitor Belfort and Tim Kennedy. Belfort however was uninterested in a match with Kennedy, something Kennedy was happy with as well:
"I'd love to fight anybody with a rich history within the sport that's been a fighter for a long time," Kennedy said. "To get matched up with Wanderlei Silva, an iconic hero of mine, that's the kind of fight I want."
"I think I can beat everybody in the middleweight division. If I didn’t, I wouldn't be here (in the UFC). I'd be doing something else."
"I wasn’t thrilled about fighting Vitor in Brazil; I’ve always been vocal about being against TRT ... I had mixed feelings about fighting him in Brazil … it’s his legacy. He can do what he wants. But I think it demeans the sport when he uses performance-enhancing drugs."
