Timeline

2016

Kenny Florian was briefly suspended by Fox Sports on January 16, 2016 for plagiarism in his preview of UFC Fight Night: Dillashaw vs. Cruz. The offending article lifted significant portions from boxing analyst Lee Wylie's breakdown of Willie Pep.

2015

Outside of his UFC career, Florian has been a color commentator on the robot combat television series BattleBots since 2015. He has also started doing on camera interviews with some of the winners of the 2018 season.

In 2015, Florian was named as the color commentator for ABC's revival of the robot combat series BattleBots, joined by Fox Sports personality Chris Rose on play-by-play. Florian continued his role on the revival's third season, which moved to Science Channel.

2012

After the Aldo bout, Florian had been dealing with tingling and numbness down his right leg and hadn’t been able to train. After meeting with an orthopedic doctor and a neurologist, both advised the 35-year-old to retire. On May 31, 2012, Florian announced his retirement during Ultimate Fighter: Live Finale weigh-ins show.

2011

Florian was expected to face Evan Dunham at UFC 126, but the bout was then expected to headline UFC Fight Night 23 on January 22, 2011. However, Florian had to pull out of the bout due to knee injury on December 6, 2010. Melvin Guillard defeated Dunham as Kenny's replacement.

On February 7, 2011 it was announced that Florian would be moving down to featherweight. He made his Featherweight debut with a unanimous decision victory over Diego Nunes on June 11, 2011 at UFC 131, with the judges' scorecards being (29–28, 29–28, and 30–27). Dana White said on MMA Live if Kenny wins this fight he'll most likely get a title shot. Florian was given the title shot against José Aldo for the UFC Featherweight Championship on October 8, 2011 at UFC 136 and was defeated by unanimous decision.

Florian has dealt with back problems throughout his career, but suffered a new injury in November 2011 while lifting weights. Having already planned to take six months off to build back to lightweight after losing a featherweight title shot in October 2011, Florian didn’t expect the injury to be a major setback.

2010

With the win Florian established himself as the #1 contender for the Lightweight Championship. Florian said "I want B.J.'s belt. B.J., you're one of the best fighters out there. I'm here to test myself. I think you're a great fighter, someone I look up to. I consider you a master. It's time to kill that master." Florian faced off against Penn at the UFC 101 Main Event for the title. During the fight, Florian repeatedly pushed Penn against the fence and attempted to take him down but was never successful. During the 4th round Penn took him down and mounted him. Penn eventually took his back and locked up a Rear Naked Choke, submitting Florian and defending his title. Florian was visibly crying as he left the octagon after his loss to Penn.

Florian faced Gray Maynard on August 28, 2010 at UFC 118. Dana White announced the winner of the fight would receive a shot at the UFC Lightweight Championship. Although striking very well throughout the fight, he was taken down at will and lost via unanimous decision.

On June 10, 2010, Keith and Kenny received their second degree on their black belt from Prof. Roberto Maia.

The first round went back and forth as Kenny landed a vicious body kick and Lauzon looked for knee bars and heel hooks. Florian finished the round with some hard shots to Joe's head. Florian opened the 2nd round with a takedown and rained down punches on Lauzon from the mount position. Lauzon attempted another heel hook but Florian continued to strike which resulted in Herb Dean stopping the fight.
