Quote of the Day: Keith Florian Talks UFC 101

"In my opinion, the major factor out of everything is the layoff. Kenny had nearly nine months off before this fight and that really hurt him. There are certain things that happen to a fighter mentally when he’s not fighting as often. He starts to question his technique a little bit and that’s part of it. It’s not all of it, but it had to do with some of it."

..."There are a lot of things that happened during the fight that you may or you may not have seen. Kenny got poked in the eye, which BJ is notorious for. He did it against Matt Hughes twice in one fight and once in their first fight. He did it against Georges St. Pierre in both fights. He was hitting behind the head all of the time. Kenny won’t say this, but I certainly will."

...(Next for Kenny) "I’m thinking more like a Frankie Edgar, Tyson Griffin, Gray Maynard or Clay Guida or someone along those lines…a Diego Sanchez…whoever is going to be in the top 5 that’s going to get us back in title contention. I don’t know who else is going to give BJ the run that Kenny did."
-- Keith Florian (brother and trainer of Kenny Florian) talks about what went wrong at UFC 101.
