All that I can say is that come April 1st you are going to see a new and improved Tim McKenzie!! I am constantly going places to get myself the best training in the world and I am not taking this fight lightly!! This fight is a make it or break it fight for me, I am coming for Aaron and you can tell him hell’s coming with me, ha ha. But all BS aside, I am truly excited to finally be here fighting for the UFC, the biggest accomplishment for me this year. Now the next accomplishment is on April 1st. Just feeling the excitement before going into that cage gets me all amped up and ready to go. I’m looking forward to this fight and showing everyone who Tim McKenzie is!! Plus, I would like to thank my family for all of their support and being behind my wife and I getting this dream started. Without them this journey would be much more difficult. Just want to take the time and say thank you Mom, Dad Scott, Grandma, Grandpa, Kathy, Linda, and most importantly, my wife. Thank you so much for all the love and support you have shown me and for believing.
