The current issue of The Improper Bostonian features Kenny Florian on the cover. The article, by Michael Holley, is pretty interesting as KenFlo discusses how training has impacted his life, for better or worse.
Referencing Florian's last fight, with BJ Penn, Holley writes, "It took Florian a week-and-a-half to steel himself to watch the fight footage, and when he did, he saw it alone with no volume. He briefly considered retirement, but instead he parted ways with one of his trainers, Mark DellaGrotte, while sticking with Montreal trainer Firas Zahabi. DellaGrotte has since complained about tension in the gym between himself and Florian's brother Keith, who remains on the team as an advisor."
The article recounts Florian's rise to fame, admiration for Royce Gracie, and his life before becoming a professional fighter. A very interesting read about KenFlo.
