Florian retires from MMA, will focus on broadcasting career

Kenny Florian’s run in the Ultimate Fighting Championship has been an historic one, and, now, it’s met an end.

The former title challenger in multiple weight classes has retired from the sport.

Florian, who fought 17 times in the UFC, finishes with an impressive 12-5 record. He last fought against featherweight champion Jose Aldo at UFC 136, losing to the Brazilian via unanimous decision.

The UFC career of Florian began against Diego Sanchez at “The Ultimate Fighter 1 Finale.” He lost the bout, but would win his next three contests. Unfortunately, for Florian, he never earned the title of UFC champion, although he fought in three championship contests over his career.

Next in store for Florian seems to be a lucrative broadcasting career. Alongside Jon Anik, he has found a spot on the broadcasting B-Team, covering the more minor UFC events, including the recent “Ultimate Fighter: Live Finale.”
