5 Options for Tim Kennedy’s New Opponent

UFC middleweight Tim Kennedy is set to take to the Octagon again in a little over a month when he’ll serve as one half of the headlining duo at UFC Fight Night 31. The card is particularly important to decorated military veteran Kennedy, as the show comes with a Fight for the Troops tag and is unfolding at Fort Campbell in Kentucky. Unfortunately, Kennedy’s original opponent – Lyoto Machida – was pulled out of the fight to fill a vacancy created by an injury to Michael Bisping, leaving the Army Ranger without an adversary at the event. That being said, who should the UFC consider as a replacement? (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)

    I like the Tim Boetsch option best here as they are both considered pretty high up in the MW rankings and Tin needs a win badly while Kennedy needs to beat a UFC guy, nothing against Larkin as he also has looked great but the Strikeforce guys need to fight UFC guys imo. Howard also would make for a good fight but I see Kennedy beating anybody on this list, and did anybody else see his tweets about calling specific fighters out? I thought it was just too funny, telling Cung Le he was old and cant drive, Commizi has bad hair etc. He called people out in a pretty funny way and honestly I really hope he is around for quite a while.
