Former UFC fighter Tim Kennedy believes severe actions should be taken against the country of North Korea.
On Monday, Otto Warmbier, a 22-year-old who was imprisoned by North Korea in Jan. 2016, passed away. Warmbier was recently sent home while in a coma, which he never woke up from.
“Unfortunately, the awful torturous mistreatment our son received at the hands of the North Koreans ensured that no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced today,” the Warmbier’s parents said in a statement.
After hearing the news, Kennedy went to Twitter and said North Korea should be punished for what they caused.
“Imprison an American citizen you should have severe consequences, murder one prepare for the wrath of a nation,” Kennedy said in a tweet.
Since retiring from MMA, Kennedy has reenlisted in the U.S army. He retired from the sport after his last fight back in December. At UFC 206, Kennedy was defeated by middleweight contender Kelvin Gastelum.
