Tim Kennedy Doesn’t Think Chris Weidman Will Be Ready For July Title Bout With Lyoto Machida
Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.03.2014

- Tim Kennedy recently spoke about wanting to fight a healthy Michael Bisping and more. Here are the highlights…

On Chris Weidman Being Ready For His July Title Fight With Lyoto Machida: "There's no way he's ready by July. No way. I mean, you're an athlete," Kennedy said. "Remember Chuck Liddell at the end of his career? He still had the heart and mind of being a champion. His body just couldn't do it. Chris Weidman is young, and still has everything to be a champion for a long time. But what your mind and heart tell you is sometimes different than what your body will allow you to do. You have to be a smart athlete."

On Weidman vs. Machida: "The takedowns and scrambles that happened in [Gegard Mousasi vs. Machida] that were close, Weidman's on a completely different level as a grappler and a wrestler," Kennedy said. "So, I'm going to have to give the nod to Weidman."

On Wanting to Fight a Healthy Michael Bisping: "I don't want to fight a hurt Bisping; I don't want his eye to be in any way, shape, or form, not in a condition to go out there and have 25 minutes of pain," Kennedy said. "I know, I'm bad person."
