Tim Kennedy is taking a stand. He’s now on a run, with a 4-fight winning streak and he’s potentially about to face a murderer’s row of badasses to get to the middleweight title. There’s a big obstacle in the way of his happiness, however, and it’s drug testing. Kennedy believes the sport is dirty as hell, so he’s moving forward and requesting random blood testing in his upcoming fight against Yoel Romero.

“They randomly test three dudes and all three fail,” Kennedy said. “All in my weight class. All dudes I could potentially be fighting. I went from just being vocal about drug use, to saying to myself, ‘I have to make a stand about this.’ ”
