The middleweight division bout between Tim Kennedy and former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans may be cursed, as it has been canceled twice now. Another planned Kennedy opponent in Kelvin Gastelum, has been suspended and is unable to fight at UFC 206.
Kennedy is looking to stay on the card and he has called out a former UFC Middleweight Champion (Anderson Silva), a former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion (Vitor Belfort) and a former UFC Heavyweight Champion (Brock Lesnar) to fight him on short notice through his official Twitter account.
While Kennedy is still listed on the card as of this writing, UFC officials have yet to announce a formal replacement opponent for him to fight. Also, the trio of Anderson Silva, Brock Lesnar or Vitor Belfort have yet to respond in any way to the challenges from Kennedy. Lesnar is currently facing disciplinary action from the Nevada Athletic Commission for his use of clomiphene at and ahead of UFC 200.
