Remains perfect in UFC

August 17, 2019
Kenney defeated Manny Bermudez via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC 241 on Saturday in Anaheim.
ANALYSIS
Full marks to Kenney for taking out the bigger, previously undefeated Bermudez as a +150 underdog. Kenney was the much more effective of the two men in the first couple rounds before he became noticeably exhausted in the final stages of Round 2. His output and effectiveness waned considerably in the Round 3, but Kenney had already done enough in the first ten minutes to lock up the judge's decision. Kenney's lack of finishing power (two career KO wins) is a major concern moving forward, but the 28-year-old Arizona native has shown enough in his first two UFC bouts (2-0) to make him worth keeping an eye on moving forward.

Stuns Ray Borg in UFC debut

March 30, 2019
Kenney defeated Ray Borg via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27) at UFC on ESPN 2 on Saturday in Philadelphia.
ANALYSIS
Making his UFC debut on six days notice, Kenney impressively dispatched one of the division's best fighters. His takedown defense was troublesome, but he landed two successful takedowns of his own and he was the far more effective fighter on the feet. Borg has struggled of late, but this is an extremely impressive debut for Kenney any way you slice it. The 28-year-old is officially on the radar.
