Tim Kennedy apparently UFC bound

source: bloodyelbow.com

Another fighter is moving from Strikeforce to the UFC.

Earlier today Tim Kennedy added Ultimate Fighting Championship to his list of employers on his facebook profile. Alone that could potentially just be a reference to Zuffa owning Strikeforce. However, UFC.com just added a profile for the Green beret war hero and combatives black belt, so it appears that the move of top talent from Strikeforce to the UFC continues.

While no firm plans have been announced for Strikeforce, it appears that the option of maintaining it as a legitimate competitor to the UFC has long passed. The possibility of maintaining it as a regional show has been raised in the past, but the transfer over of Cung Le, a huge local draw, would seem to indicate that that option is dimming. With Showtime unwilling to make a prompt commitment, it appears increasingly possible that in the not too distant future, the organization will go the way of Pride and the WFA, and simply cease operation.

Hes beaten Nick Diaz in a kickboxing fight before, his striking is fine.

From what I have seen of his last couple of fights, his striking is not good enough to become a UFC contender.

Tim Kennedy and Brian Stann have repeatedly said they will NEVER fight each other, some things are more important than money, titles, its having a brotha in arms who will willingly fire multiple rounds into a bearded muslim who is trying to chop off you head with a 8 foot long rusted blunt sword, to shoot that guy till his blood runs cold on the hot desert sand, you cannot buy that kind of comradship with a lousy fight of the night bonus, its worth more than the uFc can pay them to fight each other.

Gotdamit I am sick of hearing this. Stann was NOT in the army. There is more than one branch of the military.

 Sorry But I think Leben would knock kenedy out in under two minutes. He has a ton of pontential but is very very raw. Give the man a few middle of the pack fighters and than have him fight a guy like Leben.
