Florian says next fight could be in February or March

My new interview with UFC lightweight title contender Kenny Florian is now available at

During the interview, Florian indicated when he believes he might be fighting next:

Q: Do you know when you’ll be fighting next?

KF: Probably February or March. Based on what happens in the next two weeks, we’ve got some lightweight matches. Hopefully it will be a tough, top guy.

Florian did not have a specific opponent in mind but I asked him whether he’d be interested in fighting the winner of the Clay Guida vs. Roger Huerta match scheduled for the TUF 6 finale on Dec. 6:

Q: You mentioned some big lightweight matches coming up. A match between Clay Guida and Roger Huerta is scheduled for the live season finale of the sixth season of The Ultimate Fighter on Dec. 8. Would you have an interest in fighting the winner of that bout?

KF: Absolutely. Two great fighters in both Huerta and Guida. They’ve been doing some phenomenal things in the division. They’re both very exciting fighters. What excites me is that I want to fight a guy that’s really going to come and be aggressive and fight me. Those are fights that I’d really love to have.
