Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Prediction: Tim Kennedy Will Be the Next Zuffa Fighter to Be Fired Over Tweets

We love Strikeforce middleweight Tim Kennedy. He fights hard, he’s hilarious and he’s a veteran Special Forces badass. That’s why it is unfortunate that Kennedy will likely be the next dude to get fired over tweets if he continues to tweet as he’s recently tweeted. (There’s a special place in hell for writers that use both the noun and verb forms of the fake word “tweet” in a single sentence, I’m sure.)

Here at CagePotato, we’re the last group of people to be easily offended, but we’re just trying to send an advance warning to Señor Kennedy. Recent twitter posts of his have included many elements of any get-your-ass-fired social media cocktail: References to rape, singling out people of certain religions for bodily harm, and shotguns.

To promote his newest disturbingly funny spoof video, Kennedy posted the following on twitter yesterday:

“If you want me to mentally rape your mind you need to watch this video. It’s the trailer for Swan Lake starring me.”

Fans can also extrapolate that Kennedy isn’t Team Romney from this post over the weekend:

Is it wrong that I honk and wave at Mormons as they ride by on their bikes trying to get them to crash?

And on April 22nd, when Kennedy follower @jere562 asked the fighter, ”if #zombies were roaming the streets and one was a celebrity, who would it be and what weapon would you use to kill them?”, Kennedy replied:

@jere562 all [of] the cast members of the Jersey shore, and the Kardashian family. Shotgun

First of all, we’d argue that If Kennedy is annoyed by the nice young ladies of Keeping up With the Kardashians, he has no one to blame but himself. You either watch that shit on mute or stick to pictures and videos of Kim Kardashian on the web, like us.

Secondly, yes, Kennedy’s tweets were tongue-in-cheek and funny. But that didn’t save Miguel Torres, who was fired after quoting a comedy television show on twitter. If UFC President Dana White does end up warning or punishing Kennedy, he might at least realize that if one tells a roster of hundreds of fighters to get active on twitter, it would be helpful to provide them with some very specific guidelines.

Kennedy is walking the line, here, especially in light of Anheuser-Busch’s recent warning on fighter behavior. Here’s hoping he doesn’t get in trouble, but if Kennedy does get canned, I think we can all agree that this is how he’d want to be remembered:

- Elias Cepeda

@IronClad-I very rarely come here anymore and that sucks since I have been perusing this site since damn near the beginning. I quit hating Danga because as of late because he is clearly not the worst thing going on anymore. That just shows how low they have sunk. This was never the place for cutting edge news, they were usually at least a day behind. Now that the humor is lacking it really is pointless.

@Skeletor - Yet you still come her to contribute exactly...ohhh fuck all? Did you get tired of your stupid "fuck danga" routine? Cuse it was refreshing not reading you type your stupid fucking "fuck Danga" routine. Please fuck off.

1. Neither Kennedy or any member of Ranger Up has ever done anything funny. 2. This site has become a fucking joke.

Now that new dad is gone and it's nothing but a bunch of commenters who weren't funny when all they did was comment are the main contributors the best thing that could happen would be if the UFC shut you down. At least people would laugh in your general direction.

Don't you think you're being a little overly sensitive now CP??? Don't make an issue out of something that's clearly not one.

@The12ozCurls , well, did you?? WTF, man? Nothing wrong with Hunt's post there, that might be the coolest fan-interaction from a fighter I've seen on twitter in a long time. Don't bust him out!!
The12ozCurls- May 1, 2012 at 12:40 pm
I love Mark Hunt - I aint busting him out - I was honored to be asked - it was awesome to tell you the truth. I just think the UFC needs to lighten up.

Thank you Viva Hate -- here is the link if u guys want it.

If the UFC is gonna discipline Kennedy they better keep an eye on Mark Hunt. That dude was in my neck of the woods last weekend and I hit him with a tweet. He replied with his location and asked me to bring bitches. No joke.

Bigger News: CP is still getting mentions for their satire, MMAJunkie just published an article mentioning the retracted "article" and the UFC being called into question about betting.
