    This is the only insite we have on the Jeremy Kennedy cancellation.

    “I’m healthy, medical all good, it was contractual”

    My guess is something with UFC, his UFC contract expired and he was told by Sean Shelby that it would be a few months until they could re-sign him and he opted to sign with Brave FC. Kennedy’s goal is still to get back to the UFC and I would assume signing with an American competitor of UFC would reduce the chances of them signing him back… Just speculation on my part though.
