Melvin Manhoef is going to take Tim Kennedy down -- just joking

Manhoef couldn't even keep a straight face when making that comment:

"My striking is my strong point, I think. So I'm going to use it. I'm not going to leave it behind. And if there is an other opportunity then I will take him down. Ha. No, just joking. I'm only going to strike, so we will see what's going to happen and I think I have to work on that because my stand-up is my best game, I think. I'm going to bring my game towards him and we'll see what's going to happen."

Dutch destroyer, Melvin Manhoef, had himself some fun at the Strikeforce: "Feijao vs. Henderson" pre-fight press conference when he turned into a stand-up comedian and made the claim that he would take down his "Columbus" opponent, Tim Kennedy, if the opportunity presented itself. After he, and the rest of the crowd at the conference, stopped laughing, he made it clear he plans on using his "Marvelous" striking and showing "No Mercy" when doing so. Kennedy previously stated he intended to stand with the K-1 masher but is he just running schtick too? Who is to be believed, Maniacs?
