UFC middleweight Tim Kennedy (17-4) has been calling out Michael Bisping (24-5) on Twitter for quite some time now.
It looks like he’s back at it again, because the former army ranger recently pulled another stunt on the widely used social media site.

Kennedy is currently riding a three-fight winning streak. His last loss was in 2012 to Luke Rockhold (10-2) via unanimous decision. In his most recent bout at UFC Fight Night 31, he knocked out Rafael Natal (17-5-1) in the opening frame in what was one of the best knockouts of the night.
Bisping was originally slated to face off against Mark Munoz (13-4) a few months ago but pulled out due to a serious eye injury. It was revealed that the Brit suffered a detached retina that nearly forced him into an early retirement. Fortunately, Bisping caught the injury soon enough to be fixed and he immediately underwent surgery to save his eye. The surgery was a success and he began his recovery soon after. Prior to him pulling out of his bout against Munoz, Bisping defeated Alan Belcher (18-8) via technical decision after poking him in the eye and causing damage so severe that he wasn’t able to continue fighting.
As for Munoz, he was forced to face his friend and training partner, Lyoto Machida (20-4), and suffered a highlight reel first round knockout via head kick.
UFC President Dana White hasn’t made any official announcements as to who Bisping’s and Kennedy’s next opponents will be, but Kennedy did tag him in his recent Twitter offense against Bisping. Therefore, it’s likely he knows the two want to fight each other.
