    ltimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is sorting through its middleweight division in a quest to find potential title contenders, recently booking Strikeforce import Tim Kennedy for a 185-pound showdown against menacing Olympian Yoel Romero.

    When and where?




    At the recently-reshuffled UFC 178 pay-per-view (PPV) mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which takes place on Sept. 27, 2014, inside a venue to be named in Las Vegas, Nevada. That's according to veteran reporter Adam Hill of Las Vegas Review-Journal, who announced the pairing on Tuesday.

    Big step up for Yoel. I like this match up a lot though. Will be interesting to see how it goes.

    This is a good match up, I think Kennedy's TTD is the X factor here.

    Expecting a Kennedy RNC victory in this one.

    I hope this isn't too big, because it's awesome.

    Man Yoel is one scary dude, but this is a huge step up in competition. I don't even dare venture a guess as to who will win this.

    man.. I love me some Tim Kennedy but if he shows up and looks anything like he did against Bisping I dont see this going any other way than Romero via TKO stoppage or a boring ass lay n pray fight.

    Did we ever figure out why he looked so off that night? He looked almost "green or sick" and did not perform even close to his capabilities and look like his past self.

    I think I'd freak out if Tim Kennedy reached up while standing in the center of the octagon, had a mic lowered and did his own introduction.
