35-year-old Kenny "KenFlo"Florian will likely never find himself in the UFC Hall of Fame, but according to UFC president Dana White, Florian is among a handful of legendary competitors who will always have a home in the world's biggest mixed-martial-arts promotion.
"I've got nothing but respect for him, and Kenny Florian will be with us no matter what," White said following Saturday night's UFC 136 post-event press conference.
"Kenny Florian's awesome. He commentated our last show. I think he's great on camera. I think he's great on the mic. He's a talented guy with a lot of options, and he's always been a solid guy with us and always been a team player.
"I love Kenny Florian. … There's a lot of things that could happen with Kenny Florian."
"The thing about Kenny is he's smart. He's talented. He's got other options. He's got things going on outside of fighting, too. It's just one of those things he needs to sit down and really figure out on his own."
For his part, Florian expressed pure dissapointment. "Not right now," Florian answered when asked if he had planned his next move. "I haven't really thought past this fight, so we'll see what happens."
"Obviously, I'm disappointed. fought very hard. I trained extremely hard. I wasn't successful. That's it."
