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.
