The UFC's dismantling of Strikeforce looks to have continued with Tim Kennedy. Kennedy recently added the Ultimate Fighting Championship to his employers on Facebook:

Kennedy could be referencing the fact that the UFC owns Strikeforce, and, by proxy, he's employed by the UFC. But, then again, it seems like a random thing to do seven months after Strikeforce was purchased, no?

So, the UFC's come after the heavyweights and the light heavyweights and the welterweights and the lightweights and now it appears as if they're coming after the middleweights. UFC President Dana White will never say it, but I don't think there's much ambiguity with what they WANT Showtime to choose in 2012.

Bloody Elbow has reached out to sources close to Kennedy. We've yet to hear confirmation back, but we will update this post once we receive word.

Kennedy defeated Robbie Lawler by decision in his last fight in July at the "Fedor vs. Henderson" event.

[Update] The UFC's UK website has a profile for Kennedy. (Thanks to Bloody Elbow member MattParker17.)

[Update #2] now has Kennedy's profile as well. I think you can just about wrap this one up.

weird, a MW who will make no impact in the UFC, yet Gilbert is still in Strikeforce.

That said, Kennedy vs Paul Harris.

Make it happen!

Relax seannnnn

It was a joke but the writing is pretty much on the wall. Eventually every strikeforce card is going to be the equivalent of a strikeforce challengers card.
