Combat veteran Tim Kennedy fought for the Wounded Warriors tonight, beating a dangerous Robbie Lawler at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson. Kennedy took a some brutally hard uppercuts to the face from Lawler. That didn't stop him from using his kicks and wrestling/grappling ability to dominate Lawler on every judge's card in all 3 rounds.
Kennedy had been forbidden to wear his sponsor Ranger Up's gear by Strikeforce's new owners. He cleverly made sure the company -- which is a huge supporter of not only his fighting career, but veterans as well -- got precious camera time on Showtime after he won the fight.
Lawler seemingly had every opportunity to come back and win the fight in the third round but was too passive. Kennedy poured it on at the end and took it home. Despite being battered and beaten, exhausted and spent, Kennedy waited out Lawler in the third and poured it on in the end.
