I’m not sure if Bisping really is that much above Tim Kennedy as a fighter. He doesn’t have a top 5 win, hell I don’t think he has a top ten win. And believe me, everyone knows I really like Bisping and Tim Kennedy, but I think Bisping may just have a bloated opinion of himself. Yes, he has great boxing and cardio, but he really overrates himself. I think this Kennedy/Bisping fight is pretty damn close actually, and it’s damn entertaining with their war of words going back and forth.
Check out this latest from Bisping.
Bloody Elbow got the quote:
Tim Kennedy being the knucklehead that he is, doesn’t even realize that Ranger Up probably doesn’t give a shit about him. They just want to sell some T shirts and line their own pockets. So he’s calling me out left, right and center, and honestly, Tim Kennedy is beneath me as a fighter 100%, but if you make enough noise about it, eventually, I’m going to have to shut him up. Now, he’s getting his own way, even though he’s not somebody I would choose to fight at this point in my career.
I want to punch him in the face so bad that I’m going to do it in the Octagon professionally, and if you look at the trend of these people calling me out, it never really ends well for them. Tim Kennedy, if you’ve got a set of balls, call Dana White and ask for the fight, and I’ll see you in the Octagon. Then you can shut the f*ck up, once and for all. How about that Bloody Elbow? Put that one in your pipe and smoke it! [Laughs heartily]
Oddly enough, Tim Kennedy is a part-owner of Ranger Up. Interesting.
