05:33 PM ET 01.10 | Strikeforce middleweight Tim Kennedy didn't mince words when discussing the turnout for the final Strikeforce card ever, which takes place Saturday. While most champions were expected to fight on the card, many pulled out due to injury. Kennedy believes the injuries aren't real and the fighters want to save their bodies for their careers in the UFC. "I don't know why Strikeforce would go out and say, 'Hey, all these guys are going to be on this card,' and then a week later all these guys aren't on the card. From Luke Rockhold to Gilbert Melendez to (Jorge) Masvidal, it's like all the marquee guys that you know are going over to the UFC are conveniently injured," said Kennedy. "I'm going over there (to the UFC) but I don't care. I'm still going to go out and fight, I'm going to fight a risky fight against a guy that's dangerous that nobody knows on the last Strikeforce card. If you're a fighter, act like a fighter and go out and fight, and stop acting like a little (expletive) and go out and fight."
