You’ve got to admire Kennedy for being proactive when he found out foe Lyoto Machida had been pulled from their pairing after being tabbed as a replacement for a different fight. The decorated military veteran went on Twitter and not only called out a number of his peers but did so in an entertaining fashion. Kennedy ended up with Rafael Natal, a suitable opponent to be sure, but more importantly he boosted his UFC stock by handling things with a sense of humor and willingness to accept any scrap sent his way.
Though the recent shift in strategy around these parts has been difficult, rest assured the importance of the 5 OZ community hasn’t been forgotten or their plethora of thought-provoking opinions either. From here on out, the 10-Point Must will make a weekly appearance where I’ll give my thoughts on ten topics from the past seven days with hopes the readership will contribute their takes as well in the Comments section. This time around, subjects range from the future of a few fighters to some recently-booked rumbles to the tragic death of Leandro Souza. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
