Kenny Florian is an awesome radio guest for multiple reasons.
For one, he’s a student of the game and can articulate his points very well.
Two, he’s outspoken. If you listened to this past weekend’s edition of Inside the Cage Radio, he basically called Gomi overrated (which I agree with).
And third, he gave us some good tidbits. First, he told us he wouldn’t be fighting again until 2008 and that Roger Huerta’s next rumored opponent is Clay Guida.
I’m not sure if our friends at MMAJunkie.com had time to listen to the show this week and initially heard Florian’s remark, but regardless, Dann has done some digging and has learned there is some teeth to what Kenny said.
Dann is reporting that sources close to both fighters have confirmed that the fight is in the works to be the main event of the live finale of The Ultimate Fighter 6 on Dec. 8 on Spike TV.
That would be an awesome TV main event.
When I interviewed Dana White several weeks back he said we’d likely see Huerta start to fight the division’s elite and if the fight with Guida happens, he will have definitely been true to his word.
Huerta has the advantage when it comes to the standup but Guida is no pushover in that department. If he can get Huerta to the ground, and I think that he can because his standoff is good enough to setup his takedown, then it will be bye-bye to Huerta’s perfect record.
And if Huerta beats Guida then critics like me will have to admit he’s worthy of the hype.
