Retired UFC fighter Tim Kennedy

Ex-UFC middleweight Tim Kennedy has made a decision about his future, and it has nothing to do with MMA. The 37-year-old retired after a UFC 206 loss to Kelvin Gastelum, but has decided to re-enlist in the US Army Special Forces after the way the American election went in November.

In a conversation with TMZ Sports, Kennedy made it clear that Donald Trump’s election got the ball rolling for him being interested in re-enlisting, and when he appointed Gen. James Mattis and H.R. McMaster as Secretary of Defense and National Security Advisor, respectively, he knew that he wanted back in because he has so much respect for both men.

He stated that he doesn’t agree with some of President Trump’s politics, but “he likes to win” and that he’s excited to get back to work. The article states that he will be deployed in the next couple of weeks, but he couldn’t confirm where.

He also posted about the subject on Instagram:

Dear isis, If you are lucky enough to kill a Special Forces operator, the possibility of us dropping the biggest non-nuclear bomb ever made on you should be the least of your concerns. There is a vengeance and wrath associated with the loss of one of our brothers. May God have mercy on your soul because we are coming and we will have none to give. Sincerely, The U.S. Military

Kennedy (24-6, 3-2 UFC) was a multiple-time middleweight title challenger in Strikeforce and won his first three UFC bouts, including one over current 185-pound champion Michael Bisping. He then suffered a controversial loss to Yoel Romero before sitting on the sidelines for over two years. Kennedy was supposed to make his much-anticipated return against Rashad Evans at UFC 205, but Rashad’s late removal led to him fighting Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 206 instead. He chose to walk away from the sport after a one-sided TKO loss.
