Kenny Florian: UFC 107 was my night



"[It] was my night. Clay Guida is a phenomenal fighter. I wanted to go out there and take my time. Peter Welch and Firas Zahabi really improved my striking. I’m trying to get better, I want another shot at the title. I wanted to get in there and trade a little bit and put on a good show for the fans, and really implement my game. I wanted to be aggressive and get back to being the Kenny Florian that people know me for. That was kind of the theme for this fight. It was an elbow that really cut him very bad inside. The key really was mixing it up on Clay. I was able to do that and I caught him with a nice elbow that cut him open and rocked him, and the finisher was a strike that set up the big right hook. It was a short right hook that caught him right on the button. He went face-first into the canvas and I knew it was my time to capitalize."

Two-time lightweight number one contender Kenny Florian sounds off on his dominating performance against the scrappy Clay Guida at UFC 107: "Penn vs. Sanchez" from the FedEx Forum last Saturday night (Dec. 12) in Memphis, Tennessee. Florian was a bit tentative in the opening minutes but soon found his rhythm and outclassed "The Carpenter" on his feet and on the ground where he secured the submission finish. "KenFlo" is already at the top of the division, so where does he go from here? Edgar? Sanchez? Bueller?
