Kennedy: “Everybody was about to die”

Tim Kennedy is an emerging contender in the UFC middleweight

division, a two-time Strikeforce title challenger, and a well

rounded, highly conditioned athlete poised to headline next

month’s UFC Fight for the Troops event opposite Rafael

“Sapo” Natal.

Kennedy was a fitting selection to serve as one of the main

event participants, as the 34-year-old is both a 16-4 professional

fighter and a Staff Sergeant in the United States Army with the 7th

Special Forces Group.

In this raw and emotional segment from UFC Ultimate Insider, the

Team Jackson-Winkeljohn representative discusses the event that

prompted him to enlist, and looks back on one of the battles he

survived while serving overseas.

Check out the griping video above and take heed of

Kennedy’s ultimate message – support our troops in

every way possible.
