The two-time UFC lightweight title contender Kenny Florian is coming off a submission loss to current champion BJ Penn. Although his loss has placed him a few steps away from a third crack at the title, Florian feels stronger than ever before.
From Kenny Florian:
“My body definitely has changed. I definitely am at my biggest and at my leanest…. I feel very, very strong. I feel I’m at my quickest, and I’m in tremendous shape right now…. We’ve really gone back to the basics. I feel like it’s been a total rebirth, a total upgrade of what I’ve been doing…. I believe people are going to see even more of a change in the way that I look and fight from here on out. It’s going to be more of a change than what it was after the Sherk fight…. He’s one of those guys who’s a survivor, and he’s very, very tough. I have my work cut out for me. This is a great fight for me to get back on track. He’s a very well-respected opponent, he’s one of the best out there and that’s who I want to fight. Those are only the people I want to fight.”
