Default Tim Kennedy Gets His Wish, Faces Robbie Lawler at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson

This is gonna be a great fight, but I hate it. I can't root for both of 'em, but I can't have either lose!

Sometimes when you ask, you shall receive.

Two former middleweight title contenders will battle it out as Tim Kennedy gets his wish and will face Robbie Lawler at the upcoming Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson card.

Strikeforce officials announced the new bout on Thursday.

Kennedy has been targeting the July 30 date for a while now, and just last month expressed his desire of opponents when speaking with MMAWeekly.com.

“July 30 is the date that I’m training for an opponent yet to be named. Hoping for Robbie Lawler,” Kennedy said.

The former Army Ranger will get his opponent of choice after all, and gets back in action after a submission win over heavy handed Melvin Manhoef back in March.

Robbie Lawler returns for the first time since losing in his bid to become Strikeforce middleweight champion against Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in January.

Lawler has recently relocated to Arizona to become a full time coach and train at the new Power MMA & Fitness facility along with UFC mainstays Ryan Bader, Aaron Simpson and C.B. Dollaway.

The middleweights will do battle on the card headlined by Fedor Emelianenko taking on Dan Henderson at the Sears Center in Chicago.

The worst part about calling out Robbie Lawler is that you get to fight Robbie Lawler.
I like Kennedy, but he asked for this fight.

I love both guys! It will be a fantastic fight. I have to root for Robbie though because he always remembers my name. He's such a great guy and an exciting fighter.
