#6 UFC Middleweight Tim Kennedy to Face #11 Yoel Romero and Miesha Tate Recieves Next Opponent


In a battle that will go a long way in the pecking order to determine who will trade blows with current UFC 185 Pound Champion, Chris Weidman.

Tim Kennedy will square off against Yoel Romero at UFC 178 as part of the main card on the PPV that features the rematch of jon Jones and Alexander Gustaffson. Tim is enjoying a four fight winning streak, and has yet to taste defeat under the UFC banner, he most recently outpointed the 8th ranked, Michael Bisping via unanimous decision at the Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale Main Event back in April.

Romero also enjoys a win streak of 4 in a row and has only gone the distance once in his career, in his last outing, defeating Brad Tavares via unanimous decision at UFC on Fox 11.

Upon hearing the news of the fight announcement, Kennedy tweeted to Yoel stating;

“Looks like we are throwing down. FYI. I’m asking NSAC for drug testing on both of us. Let’s set an example for the sport.”

Romero has yet to respond, but one could entertain the idea that this almost sounds like an accusation on Tim’s part that he thinks Yoel xcould be juicing.

On to the next topic of interest, my personal fave…..women…..and Miesha Tate.

Former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Number 1 contender, and currently ranked #2 in the UFC Class, Miesha Tate (14-5) will return to the octagon after her unanimous decision over Liz Carmouche  at UFC on Fox 11 to take on undefeated Pancrase and Sengoku veteran Rin Nakai (16-0-1) at UFC Fight Night Japan on Spetember 20th.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
