Kenny Florian will get another shot to secure a UFC title, only this time it will be in the UFC's Featherweight division when he takes on Jose Aldo at UFC 136.
Florian spoke about Aldo in an email to MMANews.com today and discussed how he felt about the match up with Aldo, “I consider Jose Aldo one of the best fighters on the planet pound for pound. I have been a fan of Aldo since I first saw him fight live while I was doing commentary for the WEC. His explosiveness, well rounded game & experience make him the toughest challenge of my career.”
Florian debuted at featherweight earlier this year and picked up his first win in his new weight class, the fourth of his career “Fighting one of the top featherweights in the world in Diego Nunes at featherweight this past June showed me how tough this weight class truly is. I have always been about taking chances and challenges throughout my career – whether it was going up in weight and fighting at 185 and 170 or fighting at 155 and 145.”
The title will not be on the line until October 8th in Houston, but between now and then, Florian understands that he'll need to be at the top of his game if he hopes to take the title away from the talented Brazilian “Jose Aldo poses a threat everywhere and I will have to prepare a perfect training camp for him.”
