Former UFC fighter and Army Ranger Tim Kennedy teaches ‘special ops MMA’
Tim Kennedy is not only a former UFC fighter who had a long and successful career at the highest levels in MMA, but he is also a US Army Ranger as well as Special Forces Sniper and was even still serving in the military during his MMA career.
Just a couple of the big names he’s beaten over the course of his MMA career include current UFC middleweight champion, Michael Bisping, who Kennedy dominated for five rounds just a few years back in April of 2014. He also holds a win over former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler in similar fashion from back in Strikeforce.
In this tongue in cheek video, we see Tim Kennedy alongside Recon Marine Jon Walsh demonstrate what he calls ‘special ops MMA’ and like the video description says, it’s not for the faint of heart.
Just one of the ‘deadly’ techniques Kennedy demonstrates includes his answer to a knife attack which utilizes the dreaded Indian sunburn technique you might have used on your friends as a youngster.
As we can see in the video, Kennedy’s technique applies a great deal of pain to his attacker, forcing him to drop the knife instantly.
Another technique in this humorous video is the ‘pink belly’ attack from the crucifix position which would surely cause the desired effects of discoloring your attacker’s midsection.
Check out the video below to see some more advanced ‘special ops’ techniques that are far too brutal and ‘deadly’ for even the UFC.
