UFC President Dana White Hoping To See Only Vintage Kenny Florian In Saturday's Title Fight

At today's post-presser media scrum for UFC 136, UFC President Dana Whitespoke about the fighting future of featherweight title contender Kenny Florian.

"When you think about Kenny Florian, he's in one of those positions where he's fought for the title twice at 155 and down here at 145. At this point in his career should he lose this title fight on Saturday night, what does he do?," White stated.

"I don't know how much lower Kenny can go without cutting a limb off. I want to see Kenny go out and be Kenny in this title fight. I don't know how many people agree with me on how he looks in title fights compared to regular fights but I hope he comes out like the Kenny Florian that we're used to seeing fight. At the end of the day I'm a fight fan too and that's my opinion on what I see when Kenny Florian fights in title fights."

White did not speculate as to whether Florian would stay at featherweight should he lose to Aldo this weekend.
