Tim Kennedy Admits Bjorn Rebney Was A Mistake

After receiving backlash to Bjorn Rebney’s involvement with the MMA Athletes Association, UFC middleweight Tim Kennedy has claimed that Rebney’s public involvement may have been a misstep.

“It was a mistake during the announcement to have him be a public presence. We obviously regretted that. But he will still be somebody that the board members will go to and ask, ‘As a promoter, did you do this?” he told Ariel Helwani.

Bjorn Rebney was the previous president of Bellator MMA. His recent departure from the organization has been met with mixed reactions. Many involved claimed Rebney was not a wondrous advocate for fighters, causing many to speak out upon knowing his involvement with MMAAA.
