When it comes to future opponents for Kenney, all of them may be the bums that the UFC currently employs.
“I’ll take anybody but you step in against the No. 3 flyweight Ray Borg, that’s a tough fight,” Kenney said after the event (via Mike Bohn of MMA Junkie). “There’s a ton of bums in the UFC right now that I feel like I would run through, collect my bonuses and start getting that $50k when I put them away. There’s also a lot of really tough guys I have my eye on as well. I’d like to have a full camp then get back in there and see what I can do.”
Kenney took the fight against Borg on short notice, accepting the bout about a week before the event.
Borg missed weight for the bout at UFC Fight Night Philadelphia, which disappointed Kenney because the fighter said that Borg should just make weight.
“Nothing again Ray Borg, but I know where my mind is at,” Kenney said. “I’m always going to come to fight and I’m always going to make weight. Rip my arm off and I’ll come beat you with the other one. … Missing weight it was a pound, it happens. We’re all professionals here we need to make weight. Coming up 10 pounds he had 10 weeks notice for this fight. Make weight, man.”
There is no word yet on when Kenney is expected to return to action, but he was also the first double champion in Legacy Fighting Alliance history.
