Miller may currently be the punch line to a bevy of bad jokes after his recent run-ins with the law and Uriah Hall, but there was a time when “Mayhem” was a talented, tough draw. A decade ago Kennedy crossed paths with Miller in a single-night tournament and was able to outpoint him. The win was the second of Kennedy’s evening and set the table for him to earn the evening’s main prize with a TKO of Cruz Chacon in the final.
Wednesday night will mark a monumental moment in UFC middleweight Tim Kennedy’s career. The 34-year old military veteran is on deck to duke it out with Rafael Natalat UFC Fight Night 31 in an opportunity serving as Kennedy’s first headlining slot with the added anxiety of winning in front of his fellow soldiers due to the event’s “Fight for the Troops” billing. Of course, the 16-4 Kennedy works well under pressure based on his background as a Special Forces sniper, and chances are his aim will remain steady when he faces Natal based on similar success in the past.
