Despite not being able to win his first piece of UFC gold Saturday night at UFC 136, Kenny Florian earned the praise of his boss, UFC President Dana White, who in the past has criticized Florian and called him a “choker” in title situations.

White talked about Florian following his five round war against Jose Aldo at the post fight press conference:

“I've got nothing but respect for him, and Kenny Florian will be with us no matter what. Kenny Florian's awesome. He commentated our last show. I think he's great on camera. I think he's great on the mic. He's a talented guy with a lot of options, and he's always been a solid guy with us and always been a team player.

“I love Kenny Florian.
