Kennedy’s contract with the UFC ended after the Volkanovski bout and Kennedy grew tired of the contract negotiations for renewing, eventually leading him to sign with a new promotion – Brave CF. Kennedy headlined Brave 14 against Danyel Pilo on August 18, 2018. He won the fight via knockout in round one.
Kennedy was expected to face Marcos Galvão at PFL 8 for the alternate spot to Professional Fighters League‘s featherweight tournament. Due to a misunderstanding when making the contract with Brave CF, Kennedy assumed he was eligible to compete in other organizations’ events. Just before Kennedy’s fight, Brave CF officials contacted PFL to deny him from fighting.
Kennedy is now expected to headline Brave 21 against Magomedov on December 28, 2018.
