So Tim Kennedy's been looking for a new opponent now that Machida's out of his fight.

He's taken to twitter to call some names out and fair play to him, he's called out guys on wins, loses, guys who are well established and still relatively unknown and he's sparked up quite a bit of media from it. Here are my highlights:

Dear @ufc middleweights,
I have lost another opponent. Would someone please step up & fight me at Fight For The Troops 3. Pretty please!
TK

Mr. @RichFranklin
I'm not sure if you have plans Nov 6th? I just got stood up on for a date, and now need someone else to step in...

Hey @ChrisCamozzi I think you have bad hair, and should fight me in defense if your stylist. (My best attempt at picking a fight)

Hey @CungLe185
You vs me main-event at @ufc Fight For The Troops 3. I would also like to point out that you are old.
Tk

Yo @mousasi_mma
I'm not exactly sure where Leiden is, but I want to put you in a "Dutch oven". (See what I did there). Let's fight over it.


Mr. @wandfc
Don't fight Chael Sonnen. He has better wrestling than me, and a better chin. I am a way easier fight. You vs Me Nov 6th @ufc

You need to know Mr. @wandfc that one of my secret agents poised your food yesterday. You have to fight me if you want the antidote. #life

News flash!!! @nickdiaz209 I stole your pot, and bicycle. If you want them back you have to come out of retirement and fight me @ufc Nov 6th
Screw it....

Hey @Philippou185UFC want to get back in there asap? I promise not to wrestle if you promise not to punch me?!?!

Mr @ShogunRua
Australia is a long flight how bout you/me in kentucky & we go at 195lbs. You don't need training camp since you don't train

Opportunity knocks @rafaelsaponatal you always win, but no one knows who you are. When I'm done with you, neither will you(Tough guy voice)

I wanted to point out to Mr. @thalesleites that my last 3 opponents were from Brazil & they "fell through"perhaps you would actually show up

Hey @RichFranklin aka "American Fighter"
I want your nickname. It's cool & clever. I'll fight you for it!
Tim (aka future American Fighter)

I think @ShogunRua dresses like a Brooklyn pimp (not the classy kind). I should give him a lesson in style and fighting. @ufc FFTT 3 Nov 6th

Love or hate Tim, he's a fighter no handpicking opponents, just go in there and do his job. Also give some credit to Jake, he told me to check out his feed.

Lol, some of those are gold. He's usually pretty annoying but I like his approach to this.

I like the idea of Kennedy vs Philippou. The UFC could definitely make this fight happen.

My guess is the UFC are calling Boetsch seeing if he can drop the weight on 2 months notice. Seeing if Carmonts injury free, seeing if Philli's injury free. Calling up Belcher.

Okami woulda been a nice fight but despite the obvious I think he's also not medically cleared

A Jacare rematch would also be nice but I think Jacare is ranked higher and won the last one.

The UFC won't let Kennedy miss out on his deserved 5 round main event at fight for the troops - I just hope they give him someone we can be excited for!

I never found myself rooting for the guy but it would be a real disappointment if he didn't get to fight on that card. I really hope they can find him a replacement, all of those call outs sounded like interesting matchups.
Hey nick I stole your weed...forget it.

I was hoping he would call Stann out of retirement. But these are pretty good, kudos for not handpicking a fight

I heard Kennedy in the past said he wouldn't seek for it but if it was set up and if that's what needed to happen for a championship/contendership then he wouldn't shy away.

That said Stann was never keen to the idea and it was asked by a fan who basically said would you come outta retirement to fight Kennedy at FFTT3?
His response:

@Roundy_13 @TimKennedyMMA sorry, nothing to gain from fighting a friend, fellow vet on a military base
