Following a recent string of lackluster PPV events, the UFC is scheduled to host an impressive UFC 187 line-up on May 23rd in Las Vegas, Nevada. While a recent incident has come to light with regards to championship headliner Jon Jones, the UFC has made no remarks about his removal from the card, and therefore, the event will still feature two title fights.
However, last week, Tim Kennedy explained why he has no interest in watching the Chris Weidman vs. Vitor Belfort title fight, which is featured in the co-main event slot.
“Yeah man, my excitement for this fight is dropping like Vitor Belfort’s testosterone levels,” Kennedy told Submission Radio. “Just, like plummeting every single day; and having nothing to do with Chris Weidman. It’s just, failed drug test here, hidden drug test there, a fake injury here. It’s just like come on man, you’ve been cheating the system for too long, you kind of got caught, even though you’ve been caught a couple of times in the past.”
Kennedy has a particular distaste for the former light-heavyweight champion Belfrot, whom he believes is a walking hypocrisy and undeserving of a title shot.
“It’s like, I don’t even think he deserves to be fighting for a title. I know he’s a huge name in Brazil and people love him and he has a great haircut, you know and Jesus Christ is like the best greatest thing in the world, and he drinks unicorn blood, but like the hypocrisy that exists within that one man is just too enormous to list in this short interview.”
