Kenny Florian has fought for a UFC world title three times. Kenny Florian has lost those three times. But does it mean he should just pack it in and quit? Not if you ask him. Kenny Florian recently spoke with BleacherReport.com about his plans to rest, recover, and make a comeback to the UFC, with every intention of going back on a title run:
As Florian makes his transition back to the lightweight division, he still has one goal in mind: winning a UFC championship. Despite coming up short in all three title opportunities, Florian still feels he has what it takes to make another run towards UFC gold.
"I feel that I have all the skills to get it done," Florian said. "I've had different issues over the course of my career, but I'm capable of doing it. It's just going out there and getting it done. I have some injuries I'm going to let heal for the next two months. Once those things clear up, I'm looking forward to getting back on the race to the title."
However, when that title run begins is unknown as Florian is unsure of when his exact return date will be.
Florian is also unsure of whom he will face in his return to the Octagon in 2012.
"I really have no idea right now<" Florian said. "I'm hoping it would be a well-respected, top guy in the lightweight division. But, right now I don't have anyone in mind.
"I have a back injury that I'm letting heal up. As soon as that's cleared, I'll start talking to the UFC about possible opponents."
