Veteran middleweight fighter Tim Kennedy (10-2), who recently debuted and signed a multi-fight deal with Strikeforce, has opted to forgo his military career and will now focus solely on mixed martial arts.

The Green Beret's six-year military enlistment ends Aug. 4, and his terminal leave began July 10, according to a recent report from the Army Times.

Last month Kennedy unsuccessfully lobbied the National Guard for assignment to its Elite Athlete Program so he could continue both his MMA and military careers.
