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.
