UFC star Tim Kennedy has revealed that he is planning to re-enlist with the US army special forces to ‘fight ISIS’.

The 37-year-old fighter retired after losing in spectacular style by Kelvin Gastelum back in December, and has made the surprising choice to return to military service.

Kennedy is no stranger to the army. He first enlisted in the army back in 2004, and has served in Iraq and Afghanistan as a Green Beret sniper. He also more recently served as a sergeant with the Texas Army National Guard.

During a recent interview with Fox News, Kennedy explained his decision to rejoin the military came after seeing that the “mother of all bombs” had recently been dropped on ISIS tunnels in Afghanistan.

“The military, we’ve got our teeth back. We have a reinvigorated, hopeful, beautiful military that is proud to be back on the team,” he said.

He hopes to take the fight to ISIS, who he called “a bunch of cowards”.

Best job in the world.

Referring to Donald Trump’s controversial move to appoint Gen. James Mattis as Defense Secretary and Gen. H.R. McMaster as National Security Advisor, he added: “I jumped out of a helicopter last weekend and raised my hand and said ‘I’ll protect the Constitution,’ ‘cause I got people who will back me now.”

Kennedy enjoyed a successful career in UFC, after making his debut in the middleweight division back in 2013. Watch him in action below:
