UFC Fight Night 32 Recap: Tim Kennedy Fought Through Torn Quad

UFC Fight Night 32 Recap: Tim Kennedy Fought Through Torn Quad

As a military veteran, Tim Kennedy knows all about dealing with pain and adversity.

So, there was no way an injury was going to keep Kennedy from his main event fight Wednesday night in front of the troops at UFC Fight Night 32.

“I destroyed (my quad) last week of fight camp but refused to back out of this fight,” Kennedy posted on Twitter.

The former Strikeforce contender finished Rafael Natal, much to the delight of the troops at Fort Campbell. For Kennedy, the experience was “humbling.” He offered Natal respect, as well, for agreeing to replace Lyoto Machida in the contest.

“It was humbling being part of (the event) for the UFC. I am so thankful for my coaches and team. I want to thank my opponent for stepping up on short notice to fight me on my home turf when no one else would.”

Kennedy posted a picture of his injury on Twitter following the fight:
