"Man, I thought the fight was over twice," Kennedy said. "If anybody is to blame, it's totally me for the outcome. Someone has to step up and be the bigger guy in all of this.

This is like when someone says, "No offense" and then says something offensive.

I know Kennedy's a winer, but I'm surprised more people aren't on his side. What Romero's corner did was bullshit. Should have given Kennedy the win by TKO (Exhaustion) IMO

How the hell can anyone disagree with Tim Kennedy here?! Yes he lost, but it was a cheap way to lose. If I were Romero I'd want a rematch because deep down I'd know the victory wasn't earned fairly.

Kennedy cheated first and now needs some Kleenex.

In kennnedys defense, it stated with a wright grab and as yoel pulled away kennedy kepu trying to hold on and slipped into his glove. Slowmo it looks bad, i rewatched it and live its a sport second, doesnt bother as much anymore. IMHO i would have given yoel ten seconds max, i would have waived The fight off

It'd be one thing if Kennedy had been winning that fight, but aside from the last 10 seconds or so of the 2nd round where he grabbed the glove and landed some shots, Kennedy was losing that fight.

Kennedy deserved what he got for the glove grab.

He really didn't do anything effective in the hole fight other than the shots he landed while grabbing Romero's glove and the following shots on a dazed fighter.
