Fighting for the Angels!

T-shirt company Ranger Up and Mixed Martial Arts fighter Tim Kennedy are at it again! In a fight to be broadcast live on Showtime this Friday (September 25), Tim will once again be sporting the Soldiers' Angels logo on his shorts as he goes into the ring under the sponsorship of Ranger Up.

Last June, Tim showed his Soldiers' Angels support after winning his fight against Nick Thompson--as a veteran himself, he's well aware of how important it is for Americans to support their troops. During the June post-fight interview broadcast on Showtime, he particularly thanked Soldiers' Angels volunteers for the great work they do to ensure America's service members know they are supported and appreciated.

Soldiers' Angels gratefully salutes Tim Kennedy, and sends him best wishes for a winning fight against Evangelista Cyborg on Friday night.

And here's the fight results:

NEW YORK – United States Army veteran and rising middleweight mixed martial arts (MMA) star Tim Kennedy (11-2) dominated a previously unbeaten Zak Cummings (10-1), submitting Cummings with a north-south choke in the second round (2:43) of their STRIKEFORCE Challengers main event battle live on SHOWTIME from Tulsa, Oklahoma’s SpiritBank Event Center on Friday, September 25.


Kennedy, a 29-year-old former sniper for the Seventh Special Forces who recently accepted a position with The Texas National Guard in order to be able to pursue his MMA career more thoroughly, rocked the 25-year-old Cummings early in the first round after the two engaged on their feet.
