Florian doesn’t plan to fight for the next six months as he rebuilds his body for the lightweight division. He’ll return to an uncertain future, with a fourth title shot highly unlikely without a lot of stellar performances.

“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.”

Florian believes he’s still making improvements and said he has been reinvigorated since switching training camps two years ago to work primarily at his own gym in Brookline and in Montreal with renowned trainer Firas Zahabi. A promising career as a TV analyst awaits after retirement, but Florian isn’t ready to hang it up yet.

Say hello to my little friend!
Hope he picks a weight and stays there. It's not healthy for him to be switching weight classes all the time, it's hurting his career.

 I thought it was really smart to take six months to get back to 155

 Good decision. He looked too thin at 145. Lightweight is better for him imo.

I think he performs best at 155. If he works on his takedown defense (easier said than done), he can really makes some waves again.

Why keep jumping around? Why not stay at FW? He said he feels great there and feels like he belongs there. Just because you don't win doesn't mean you have to change weight classes again

Always enjoy watching him fight, wherever it is though Phone Post

Not so sure about great. Kenny has a tendency to stink up the joint when he faces someone skilled. I think a fight with Nate is an interesting match-up though between 2 technical fighters.

Kenny is always exciting,but always seems to come with the worst possible game plan for big fights.

He has beaten a number of skilled fighters. He has struggled when fighting opponents who are better fighters which are generally in the top 2-3 of their respective weight classes.
