Video: Watch Kenny Florian announce Miss Hooters 2015 winner

In what can only be described as a step up from getting punched in the face for a living, former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) title contender Kenny Florian spent some time on Thursday (Aug. 6) serving as host for the 2015 Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant.

More photos here for, uh, research purposes.

Fellow retired mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Forrest Griffin also made a cameo appearance in the video after Florian announced the big winner.

Other than watching for the entertainment value of seeing a 5'10" Florian dwarfed by a stage full of half-naked women is the chance to see... a stage full of half-naked women. Of particular amusement is seeing their facial muscles twitch as they attempt to sustain more than three minutes of fake smiling.

These days when Florian isn't surrounded by wall-to-wall Hooters, he's usually busy with his gig for UFC on FOX providing color commentary for UFC Fight Nights, which means he'll be back in the broadcast booth tomorrow night in Nashville for Teixeira vs. Saint Preux.

Sadly, no swimsuit competition for that one.
