Tim Kennedy feels like he lives a schizophrenic existence between his military and fighting life.
Put him in a kitchen, though, and that's where the contrast really comes into focus.
Kennedy was making dinner for his wife recently and
remembered that one year ago he was on a dangerous mission in

UFC middleweight contender Tim Kennedy doesn't have high hopes that upcoming title challenger Vitor Belfort will make it to his UFC 181 showdown with champ Chris Weidman. In an interview with Bloody Elbow, the former two-time Strikeforce title challenger went off on The Phenom's checkered past involving performance-enhancing drugs. Okay, it's one of two things; either he gets to use steroids-he's training, has wonderful doctors that get him through it all-and he's able to compete, barely getting read news >>

UFC middleweight contender Tim Kennedy has always taken a hard stance against performance-enhancing drugs in MMA, so it comes as little surprise that he's never been—and still isn't—a Vitor Belfort fan. The two-time Strikeforce title challenger unloaded on "The Phenom's" testosterone replacement therapy usage in an interview with Submission Radio yesterday.

Since entering the UFC, former Strikeforce title contender Tim Kennedy has wanted nothing more than a tough opponent with a big name who could rocket him to the top of the middleweight division.

Romero, the former Olympic medalist, carries a four-fight winning streak into t read news >>

Ahead of their middleweight showdown in the main event of The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale, Michael Bisping (24-5 MMA) and Tim Kennedy (17-4 MMA) met at staredown. While the American behaved as an army man should do - calm, controled and waiting for the right moment to strike, the TUF 3 winner behaved like 15-year-old bully - pointing his finger in his opponent's face, trying to intimidate with trash-talk and pretending to have some psycho outburst. Anyway none of that seemed to scare Kennedy read news >>
