Casey Kenney laughs at ‘basic well-rounded’ Nathaniel Wood’s UFC 254 fight prediction

When Casey Kenney found out Nathaniel Wood predicted he would shoot for takedowns “after two minutes” of their UFC 254 kicking off, all he could do was laugh.

Kenney and Wood will meet in a 140-pound catchweight bout on the preliminary portion of Saturday’s event in Abu Dhabi. Kenney will look to pick up his second win during this particular trip to Fight Island for the promotion following his dominant unanimous decision win over Heili Alateng at UFC Fight Island 4 earlier this month.

Ahead of the matchup, Kenney joined MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck from Abu Dhabi to preview the matchup with Wood, talks how his most recent win has had the most impact on his career, how the UFC 254 bout came together, his opponent’s prediction of how the fight will play out, where he goes with a win, his hope to get another fight in before the end of the year, and more.
