Quote of the Day: Tim Kennedy - "Nobody Wants to Fight Me"

via Sherdog.com
"It’s absolutely atrocious. Strikeforce approached me for the December and January card. ... But nobody (Benji Radach, Joey Villasenor, Matt Lindland, Robbie Lawler, Melvin Manhoef) wants to fight me."

"I’m super frustrated with it. This is a pugilistic sport, is it not? It is the nature of the sport to fight each other. Do I keep waiting these guys out until, in a battle of attrition, somebody gives up and says ‘Tim is the only guy who I can fight, so I’ll take that’?"

"We’ve been talking about (a fight against Jason "Mayhem" Miller). Jason and I have always known that it will eventually come because it is a quick essential Mixed Martial Arts fight ...We go out there to ‘fight,’ not try to counter-punch our way to a five-round decision like Jacare did."
