Tim Kennedy: I want to fight Bisping, ‘not a top contender’

Thursday, November 07, 2013

Tim Kennedy is fresh off a first round knockout of Raphael Natal Wednesday night, and is already looking for his next fight. Not content to see what UFC VP for Talent Relations Joe Silva has in mind, Kennedy instead determined to improvise, adapt, and overcome, taking to the social network.

Hey @bisping you should keep your one good eye on me and get the other one healthy. 😉

Don’t start acting hard because you ko’d some random Brazilian. News flash, NO ONE GIVES A S—. If u want it. April, let’s go.*

michael ‏@bisping
Well it’s simple. Call the UFC and say u wanna fight me in April. Put your money where your mouth is big shot.

Just remember you asked for this. I promise I won’t knee you while you are down, poke you in the eye or spit on you when it’s over.

Tim Kennedy ‏@TimKennedyMMA
I don’t think I have earned a shot at any of the top guys. I think the @UFC should give me someone like @bisping

So what do you think UG? You like Tim Kennedy vs The Count”

“I sent a tweet earlier aimed at Tim Kennedy,” said Bisping. “in hindsight it was insulting to his opponent, for which I apologise and: have deleted my tweet.
