Poor Tim Kennedy tore his quadriceps muscle prior to his Nov. 6 bout with Rafael Natal in the most unlikely of ways. He wasn't caught in a leg lock. He didn't deliver a bad kick. Rather, he sacrificed his health for an old lady.
Per MMA Fighting,
"I tore my quad coming into this camp," Kennedy told the media at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. "The very last week of fight camp, just a stupid thing happened. A lady walked over the track and it was either run over a 65-year-old lady - probably kill her - or try to decelerate in about two meters. I chose to decelerate and just fell to the ground, grabbing my leg screaming not great words."
Despite the injured quadriceps, Kennedy defeated his opponent Rafael Natal by knockout at 4:40 in the first round.
