Kennedy, who fights at 185 pounds and has a record of 11-2, said he is looking forward to facing Prangley. “He’s one of…

What you might not know (I sure as hell didn’t) is that 101st Airborne soldier Hunter “The Future” Worsham will be fighting in one of the preliminary bouts. Worsham has been in the Army since 2008, according to Strikeforce. He’s 5-1 since turning pro in 2007, and his most recent fight — a 1st-round victory via armbar — was just over a month ago.…
