You can’t really have a better fairy tale than Tim Kennedy coming to Kentucky to fight in front of his brothers in arms, then win via knockout for the first time since 2007. The ridiculous scenarios this guy was put in, being healthy for years yet getting only two fights in 19 months in Strikeforce, multiple lost title shots, a lack of money, his family suffering as he pursues a dream outside of the military, but in its peripheral vision. Tim Kennedy stayed focused. Even when Strikeforce was dying a slow death on the vine under Zuffa. He made the transition to the UFC, then he stands victorious, in a Fight for the Troops event. It all worked out.
Like it was always supposed to.
