“During the month of August, I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Fort Rucker in Dothan, Alabama and Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Alabama. It was truly an honor to represent the UFC. The UFC had done much to support US Troops all over the world. I was able to sit in helicopters, planes, witness drills and operations. Plus, I had a chance to eat and talk with the amazing men and women from our U.S. Military. Read More
The fight will take place on October 14th at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV. Kenny released the following statement:
“I take great honor in announcing that I will be fighting Sean Sherk for the Lightweight World Championship at UFC 64 on October 14th at the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas. I just started my formal training for the fight.” Read More
“I would absolutely fight Sean Sherk for the Lightweight Division Title. The UFC said I was fighting Sherk in October or November, and I accepted. Then, all of a sudden, they pushed for the August show. However, I just got off the Stout fight and I’m leaving for Brazil for two weeks. Realistically, I need more than 3 weeks to prepare for that fight. Sherk’s been on the sidelines training for a fight for several months.”
After saying he was “more than ready” to fight Sam Stout, Kenny Florian in a minute and forty six seconds of the first round put the highly regarded Stout on the ground and quickly ended the fight with a rear naked choke hold. It was text book BJJ. Seizing the opening Stout gave him, Kenny took the fight to ground and laid a barrage of punches and elbows to Stout’s face.

The progress I made in Thailand is showing up in my training. For me, working out, training to fight and then competing is a job that I love so much. When I am working hard, sweating, bleeding, and crying to get to a higher level, I am happy. My trainers are always looking for ways to challenge me mentally, physically and technically. I know it will soon pay off. Read More
