Kenny Florian To Throw Out Opening Pitch In Philadelphia Tonight


Kenny Florian sent along the following updated:

Later today I will begin a media tour to promote UFC 101, which will be held August 8th in Philadelphia at the Wachovia Center. My title fight with BJ Penn for the Lightweight Championship will serve as the main event. Plus, there will be a number of other great fights, including a battle between Forrest Griffin and Anderson Silva.

Already there is an amazing amount of interest in this event, so I would recommend purchasing tickets as soon they go on sale if you plan on attending.

Tonight, I am scheduled to do interviews on 950 ESPN radio and Daily News Live on Comcast SportsNet. After that I am headed over to the Phillies game where I will throw out the first pitch! Tomorrow I will be doing radio and tv interviews in the morning. In the afternoon, I will meet with the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News.

Afterwards I will head to Montreal to train for a few days and then it's back to Boston.

You can follow me on Twitter (pretty much day and night). I enjoy being able to interact with everybody in such a convenient and timely way.

This Friday (May 15), myself, Dana White and Forrest Griffin will be appearing on the Dr. Phil Show for an episode entitled “Dangerous Teen Trends.” Check your local listings for channels and times.
