FiveOuncesofPain.com (www.fiveouncesofpain.com) has learned from a source close to the situation that IFL fighter and active Army Ranger Tim Kennedy has accepted a fight against Jason “Mayhem” Miller at Mark Cuban’s HDNet Fights card on December 15th. Kennedy will be replacing Sean Salmon, who was viciously knocked out last weekend during Strikeforce’s middleweight tournament.
Kennedy is 8-1 in his mixed martial arts career with a decision victory over “Mayhem” Miller back in 2003. In addition to taking this fight with Miller, Kennedy will also be competing in the IFL World Grand Prix two weeks later on December 29th.
This is a tough fight for both guys and Kennedy is a much better opponent for Miller than Salmon would have been. This has the makings of an excellent fight.
