Tim Kennedy: As Much Respect As I Have for His Skill, Michael Bisping Fights Cheap

Tim Kennedy heads into his TUF Nations Finale headlining bout with Michael Bisping with a lot of animosity, but also with a lot of anticipation for the opportunity before him.

Having spent several years under the Strikeforce banner fighting numerous top-tier middleweights, he relished the day when he could challenge fighters in the organization that most consider the No. 1 mixed martial arts promotion in the world.

Kennedy already has a couple of UFC fights under his belt, but now he gets the chance to face a perennial contender. A victory over Bisping would vault Kennedy into title contention.

Tim Kennedy and Michael Bisping headline The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale in a five-round, non-title fight on Wednesday, April 16, in Quebec City, Quebec.
