Kenny Florian Looking Forward To Testing Himself Against BJ Penn

From Kenny's March update:

On the Horizon
I am very excited to let you know that while I don't have a definite date yet, I will be fighting BJ Penn for the Lightweight UFC title later this summer. It has been a long road back and I am very grateful for the opportunity. Rarely does one get the chance to fight for a championship belt in the UFC and it's even more infrequent to fight a legend.

BJ Penn has been someone I have looked up to for a long time. He has accomplished many amazing things. So I am looking forward to testing myself against one of the greatest if not the greatest lightweight fighter in the world.

My coaches can't wait for the full fight camp to get started. As I begin formal preparations, I would like to acknowledge my amazing team of coaches that include; Keith Florian, Mark DellaGrotte, Peter Welch, Kevin Kearns and Jesse Kropelnicki. Their instruction, guidance and mastery is truly world class. For sure this will be the best and toughest training camp of my career.
