Rafael Natal steps in vs. Tim Kennedy on Nov 6

Tuesday, October 01, 2013

When Michael Bisping injured his eye, Lyoto Machida was pulled from his fight with Tim Kennedy as a replacement vs. Mark Munoz. That left Kennedy without a fight, so the war fighter took to Twitter and called out the entire division, including:
•Chris Camozzi (I think you have bad hair, and should fight me in defense of your stylist);
•Cung Le (I have serious doubts that @CungLe185 is a good driver);
•Gegard Mousasi (I’m not exactly sure where Leiden is, but I want to put you in a “Dutch oven”); and even,
•Alistair Overeem (You vs me (catch weight) Nov 6th at @ufc Fight For The Troops 3. Winner gets a lifetime supply of horse meat.)

About the only fighter Kennedy did not call out is Rafael Natal, who will be stepping in to fight him at UFC Fight for the Troops 3, on November 6, at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

Natal is on a three fight win streak, while Kennedy has won the last two in a row.
