Kenny Florian plans to take “some time” away from the Octagon to consider his options after dropping a unanimous decision to UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo this past Saturday at UFC 136.
“First, I’d like to thank Jose Aldo for giving me the opportunity to compete for the featherweight title last Saturday. I gave the fight my all, but Jose won that night,” Florian said in a statement. “Second, everyone is asking what is next for me. The only response I can give right now is that I’m going to take some time. I want to rest, spend some time with my family and friends, and then evaluate all of my options. One way or another, you haven’t seen the last of Ken-Flo!”
Florian previously came up short in bids at the UFC lightweight title against Sean Sherk and BJ Penn and is now 0-3 in UFC title bouts following his loss to Aldo.
