Tim Kennedy Thinks Theres No Way Chris Weidman Will Be Ready To Return

Tim Kennedy has some serious doubts about the planned UFC middleweight title fight going down on Fourth of July weekend.

Kennedy had this to say over the weekend on Weidmans return:

“There’s no way he’s ready by July, There’s no way. Remember Chuck Liddell at the end of his career? He still had the heart and mind to be a champion, but his body couldn’t do it. Chris Weidman is young, still has everything to be a champion for a long time. But what your mind and heart tells you is sometimes different than what your body will allow you to do. You have to be a smart athlete.”

Kennedy meets Michael Bisping at the TUF Nations Finale on April 16 in Quebec City. Bisping is coming off an eye injury — a detached retina — and Kennedy is hoping he’s completely at his best. The former Army Ranger just isn’t too confident Weidman will be against Machida in July.
