Kennedy puts fighters on blast for dropping off card
The Final Strikeforce card is fast approaching, but with several big name fighters pulling out of their fights, Tim Kennedy has become none too pleased.
The army veteran was interviewed by BloodyElbow.com and asked about the recent string fighters dropping off the card, and if their injuries were even legit.
"Well, I don't know. Maybe they are, maybe they aren't. It's pathetic and convenient for every single marquee fighter in all of Strikeforce, that we all know to be going over to the UFC, are pulling out of their fights, two weeks before the final card. It's like, are you guys fighters, or are you just a bunch of little vaginas?"
"The whole thing seems like a big bunch of horse shit. Yeah, I'm gonna call all these dudes out, because I'm a super tough fighter, this is MY hood, fight me, blah blah blah, oh wait, I hurt my wrist, and I'm gonna be going to the UFC, so I'm not gonna fight. I'm just gonna wait and fight somebody in the UFC. What? What just happened? Blech. Whatever."
With the promotion shutting down it's doors following the event it's become known that many of it's fighters will make the jump the the big show in the UFC. However when the card was formed months ago the 2012 injury bug seemingly caught up with Strikeforce, forcing champions Luke Rockhold and Gilbert Melendez off the event. Then in late November Lorenz Larkin dropped. And just last week Jorge Masvidal was scratched.
