Kaizen: Little improvements helping Kenny Florian get better every day




"I'm real blessed to be able to fight for the UFC and have them keep giving me top level guys. That's what I'm in the sport for, to see how far I can take it and keep improving. Anything can happen out there but I just try to focus on what I can control and have fun and that's what I did. I wanted to open (Gomi) up and keep him guessing. He was really low and I didn't want to force anything out there, I just wanted it to flow and he got a little upright so I changed levels and took him down. I've been working a lot on my wrestling, especially the offensive side of it and it paid off. I still got a long way to go and a lot of things to work on but I know the plan's working, I'm getting better every day. 'Kaizen,' little improvements every day."

Former UFC lightweight number one contender Kenny Florian once again shows he's one of the sport's best lightweights with a dominating performance over PRIDE import and Japanese sensation Takanori Gomi at the UFC Fight Night 21 event from Charlotte back on March 31. "KenFlo" continues to refine his game and may have one more big fight prior to a potential third 155-pound title fight. Is Gray Maynard the only thing standing in his way?
