Tim Kennedy Had a Torn Quad Going into Last Night’s Fight

UFC fighter Tim Kennedy is a real man’s man. He’s a member of the US Armed Forces and he’s also one hell of a fighter, as he demonstrated last night with his impressive win over Natal. What really might put you in awe, though, is to find out that Tim Kennedy went into last night’s fight with a torn quad muscle in his leg. Ouch. I don’t know what it feels like to tear a quad, but have seen how it affects athletes and usually they are in such crippling pain that they can’t go on for too long.

Yet, Tim Kennedy fought through his injury and won. [link]

“I tore my quad coming into this camp,” Kennedy told the media at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. “The very last week of fight camp, just a stupid thing happened. A lady walked over the track and it was either run over a 65 year-old lady – probably kill her – or try to decelerate in about two meters. I chose to decelerate and just fell to the ground, grabbing my leg screaming not great words.”
