Kennedy uses superior ground skills to submit Manhoef
Melvin Manhoef is a lethal striker, but everyone in the middleweight division knows the Dutchman is helpless on the ground. Tim Kennedy had to eat a few nasty kicks and struggled over the first two-plus minutes to get the fight to the ground, but once he did, it was sayonara for Manhoef. Kennedy scored his 13th career victory via rear-naked choke at the 3:41 mark of the first at Strikeforce: Columbus at Nationwide Arena.
Kennedy (13-3) was thrilled to get the win.
