Prior to UFC Fight Night 77, Tim Kennedy relayed he was interested in facing the winner of Vitor Belfort – Dan Henderson III. Well, now that the fight’s in the books, Mr. Kennedy has called out “The Phenom”, and has done so in headline grabbing fashion…
If you missed it, Belfort used one of his feared head kicks on Saturday to set up another stoppage win over “Hendo” in the opening round. The legend protested the stoppage, and claimed he was never out of the fight, but it was a big victory for Belfort regardless.
Kennedy, however, didn’t think much of the middleweight’s victory, as here is what he had to say to Belfort on Twitter:
Finally got around to watching the @vitorbelfort fight. It looks like he is using less steroids (i.e. is fatter/slower)Hoping I get him next

If you’re surprised to read comments like this coming from Kennedy, you shouldn’t be. Now it will be interesting to see if the UFC goes with this match-up, and further, if Belfort’s interested. It could make for a very interesting scrap, and further, pre-fight story.
