UFC Fight for the Troops 3 in Tweets: Pros react to Tim Kennedy vs. Rafael Natal, Alexis Davis vs. Liz Carmouche, more

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Tim Kennedy sent his fellow servicemen away with a smile on Wednesday night, unloading a devastating left hook that floored Rafael Natal midway through the first-round of UFC Fight for the Troops 3's main event. The knockout marked Kennedy's first since 2007, dropped a cool $50,000 bonus into Army veteran's pocket, and capped off an exciting, finish laden night of fights at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

Afterward Kennedy leapt atop the cage to shower his fellow soldiers with affection, while the exuberant crowd burst into a rousing "USA!" chant for their countryman. And as always, the mixed martial arts community wasted little time taking to Twitter to weigh in on the extraordinary scene.
