He's getting an x-ray today...
Tim Kennedy spoke last night following his win at TUF: Nations Finale. Check out the highlights:
On his hand's status: "I think I broke my hand in the first round. I don't want to lie to you, so I'll just be honest. I'll get an x-ray (Thursday)."
On picking it up after the second round: "I kind of had to stop being a p—y in the second round. I was like, ‘Ahh, my right hand really hurts. Screw it, I'll just hit him with it.' The second round was just me not being a p—y and getting my s—t together and started hitting him again. We'll find out tomorrow."
On straying from his game plan: "I wanted him to start moving forward. I was moving forward the entire first round, hitting takedowns and hitting him with big punches. It's a lot easier to hit a takedown against a guy that's moving toward you because you don't have to close the distance. So the rhythm change was to try to lure him forward. What (my coaches) kept screaming at me was that I kept moving backward, which is not what you're supposed to do. You let them start moving forward and then you explode forward."
