The 26-year-old Nebraska concrete paver performed the same from the first time he grabbed a microphone, and was even one missed phone call away from being the voice of DWCS.
The fact that he only focuses on the fighters, as opposed to himself, reflects how the entire LFA crew has successfully run the show all these years.
As LFA celebrates its fifth anniversary where it all began, Kendall has seen more than 200 household names walk through the LFA cage. He may have missed Jens Pulver at RFA 1, but seeing Brandon Moreno win LFA gold and then become one of the most beloved UFC champions more than made up for it.
He sees even greater accomplishments over the next five years, and the endless question of “who’s next” has Kendall as excited as he was the day he heard about RFA 1.
“In five more years, you might be watching 225 more shows,” Kendall said. “It’s hard to imagine. How it will evolve, you never know. If I think back to RFA 2 where I started, it’s interesting to see how it evolved, and it’s hard to know where we’re going to be, but we’re going to be on top.
Here are five more years!
