UFC's Tim Kennedy has a message of encouragement: 'Stop being a p---y'

Esther Lin

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight Tim Kennedy is a combat veteran of the United States Armed Forces, and like many combat veterans, has seen and done things most citizens could not, or would not do in the name of war.

Fortunately for them (and us), Kennedy is willing to share some of those horrors on social media, because this is 2016 and that's what we do nowadays as a society. In fact, I plan on taking a dump in about 15 minutes and will probably share the play-by-play on Twitter.

Sorry, no selfies.

Anyway, Kennedy opened up about his decision to not have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), because like all mental disorders, it's clearly a choice. The secret to his success? Stop being a pussy and do something positive with your life.

Straight from the horse's mouth:

I suppose that's one way of looking at it.

After (not surprisingly) receiving a healthy amount of criticism for his social media rant, Kennedy responded to his Facebook followers to insist it was a "message of encouragement to get off your ass" and should not be misconstrued as something negative.
