Tim Kennedy flattens out Rafael Natal in the headline bout of UFC Fight for the Troops 3

Fort Campbell – US Army veteran Tim Kennedy did not disappoint in front of his fellow service man inside the packed Fort Campbell Hangar in Kentucky when he bagged his first KO of the Night honors after knocking out Rafael Natal in the first round of their headlining bout.

Rafael Natal opened the round strong by constantly landing leg kicks to his stalking opponent. Kennedy’s leg has started to show marks from the leg kicks by the middle part of the round. Despite that, the 10 year army veteran continued with his game plan of pressuring his elusive opponent back into the cage. His patience finally paid off in the dying seconds of the first round when he landed a lunging left hook that sent Natal to the canvass. Kennedy followed up with a few strikes to finish him off before Herb Dean steps in to put a halt to the action at 4:40 of the first round. The loss to Kennedy snapped the three fight winning streak of the Brazilian, his record now stands at 17-5, 5-3-1 inside the octagon.

WEC 51: George Roop KOs The Korean Zombie

Written on October 01, 2010 by John Paul Vill

Not much of a fight, George Roop gave with a fair kick that ended Jung's career. It was a short fight with flaws. Not much action but full of glory.

George Roop had a vicious left kick to Chan Sung Jung’s head in the second round of WEC 51. Knocking him unconscious and ending the fight with him on the spotlight.

The Korean Zombie became known after his fight with Leonard Garcia on WEC 48. But the fight was then sloppy and full of unnatiral defenses. Now Roop showed Jung how to fight roughly.

“He’s a brawler,” Roop said afterward. “I thought my precision striking was going to win the fight.”

Roop was good, standing up with Jung in the first round, and the one-kick knockout stopped the fight. A snap in a blink. The former TUF contender got his first WEC victory.

Garcia also fought and lost last Thursday night. A Jung-Garcia rematch is set for 2011.It would be an easy promotion to fans for sure. But it wouldn’t be promoted as MMA.

Roop demonstrated Jung’s flaw very dramatically. We believed that Garcia and Jung are way to far from being stars.
