By FCF Staff
Tim Kennedy didn’t disappoint all of the military personnel in attendance at “Fight for the Troops III” tonight, as the decorated soldier stopped Rafael Natal in the card’s main event.
Natal was able to land several hard kicks and punches to Kennedy early on, but the rugged middleweight continued to pursue the noted grappler throughout the round. As the fight neared the five minute mark, Kennedy floored Natal with leaping left hook, and finished the bout with follow up punches.
