Kenny Florian Agrees to Face Evan Dunham, Likely for UFC 127

"We verbally agreed to fight Evan Dunham, which is great news. Phenomenal opponent, very excited about it... looks like it may happen on Super Bowl weekend."

UFC 127 is starting to shape up as a killer card. If this fight pushes through, it would join other rumored high profile matchups for the card, like Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort, Jon Jones vs Ryan Bader, and Rich Franklin vs Forrest Griffin.
