Kenny Florian will keep on fighting

Shocker! Kenny Florian has decided he still loves fighting. Eating like a Haitian? Not so much:

“I didn’t get in this to be second-best, of course. But at the same time, not everybody can be a champion,” Florian said. “I’m just going to go back to 155, work my way up, take it one fight at a time and see where it puts me.

“I think there’s exciting fights out there for me, there’s still challenges out there for me, there’s still things I’d like to try to improve on and that’s the main thing. I don’t necessarily have the title in my eyes, but I do have my own personal goals as far as the technical level that I want to get to.”

Attaboy, Kenny! We’re happy to hear he didn’t pack it in just because he’s used up all his low hanging title shot opportunities. And now that his freakshow run at 145 pounds is over, he can return to doing what he does best: finishing fights at 55! Even the prospect of having to listen to his brother Keith shrieking isn’t enough to turn me off this great news. I’ve thought about it for a while and having the world’s loudest, most obnoxious cornerman is just way too Boston to criticize.

    thatd by like saying that drinking strohs at 2 in the afternoon in your front yard thats full of busted, tireless cars is way too indiana to criticize

    or that being a complete self centered dick who’s never left the city because he thinks the world falls off a cliff once he crosses the GW bridge is way too new york to criticize

    I find it really annoying how Florian is always being introduced as a “veteran” by Goldberg. I get that as far as the UFC is concerned, the MMA universe was created when TUF season 1 aired, but still, if Florian is a veteran, then what the hell is BJ Penn or Anderson Silva? Zombies? Oh well, at least it’s better than being introduced as “the always dangerous [name]” – a Goldberg euphemism for “serious has-been”.

    iamphoenix: Was there a joke/insult there directed at me that I didn’t get?

  • Danjo

    His best wasn’t good enough.

    Him and Rampage both gave their best this lst time out, and they both lost. They can still make a draw and get some fights, but neither will be champion.

    PW be slow.

  • P W

    “PW be slow.”

    That’s why I need some help!
