After Nearly Losing Toe, Kennedy Ready for Second Crack at Belt

Mike Chiapetta, - Tim Kennedy has been through the hell of war and the enmity of cagefighting, yet it was a friendly training session at his home gym that nearly cost him an appendage.

"I was sparring and my left toe slipped between a space in the mats, and I threw a hard left hook and my toe stayed in the tiny little space while my foot continued to move," he said. "It pretty much tore off my left toe. I had to go and get surgery to put it back on, and now my toe is a good-looking toe."
