Tim Kennedy is a decorated soldier as well as an accomplished MMA fighter, and according to a report, the FBI is investigating threats that have been made against him by ISIS.

Recently Kennedy posted the following comments on Facebook:

Just spoke with the FBI regarding some recent credible threats towards me by ‪#‎ISIS‬ They were not overly thrilled with my response… “Let those cowards come”

Then, in a follow up report from the Army Times, Kennedy repeated that the FBI has warned him of the threats. The 36 year-old fighter also stated:

“What’s the definition of terrorism?” Kennedy said. “It’s to achieve an objective through the use of force and fear. These are just nasty, evil, disgusting human beings who disrespect human life. I teach people how to live with threats like this. Who would I be to be cowering to a bunch of gutless cowards acting like a bunch of tough guys online?”

As far as MMA, Kennedy hasn’t fought since September, 2014 when he was stopped by Yoel Romero. Recently Kennedy reported that the UFC had offered him a fight with Lyoto Machida in February, but due to teaching commitments, he was unable to accept.
