UFC featherweight contender Kenny Florian will take a break from his training camp in preparation of facing Jose Aldo at UFC 136 to head to Brazil for commentary duties at UFC 134: Rio.

Florian, who has filled in as color commentator in several past shows, will be in attendance in Brazil to work alongside Mike Goldberg in the broadcast booth.

Regular UFC commentator Joe Rogan was unable to make the trip to Brazil due to filming obligations for his return to the NBC show Fear Factor that is currently in production.

I'm a big fan of Rogan but I enjoy when he takes breaks from time to time. Florian is awesome as a commentator and hopefully he'll be doing it more in the future.

Yeah, I like this. Florian is an awesome commentator and I hope he does it when his career is over. I like Bonnar as well, he would be a good fill in.

I threw out Couture's name, because I didn't know if Florian would do it with him training for Aldo.

But this is good.

Kenny once again proving that he's the Ryan Seacrest of MMA.

I agree with you guys. I think stephen is the best fighter commentator followed by Ken flo and Mir could be the best if he stopped being so byest. I feel he's the most insightful out of the 3.

Florian is more than capable of filling in.

I wouldn't have minded seeing Mir maybe, or Randy.

No thanks....especially if they want to be taken seriously on Fox.

I like Florian but I wonder why they did not pick Mir.

i dont like Kenny, but as a commentator he isnt that bad. Couture would have been far better imo

Since this card is in Brazil, why not have Chael Sonnen fill in?

Maybe if Rampage could talk normal, which probably isnt possible.

I'd be surprised if Chael can get a VISA. . . and leaving the country is probably a violation of his probation.

Also, he would be the most annoying comentator ever.

I happen to think he has the commentating skills to make it exciting and funny. Two great shows in one.

Chael would be a train wreck in Brazil, especially when Nog or Silva fight....c'mon guys with what he's already said about those guys' Jits abilities and how a Nog Black Belt is equal to finding one in a cereal box.....he would be funny and controversial for sure and we would all love it.....but Brazilians would be straight up pissed!!!

I don't mind when Florian commentates. Aside from Couture, I'd take Florian over Mir, Bonnar, anyone else, etc. He's actually very good at being descriptive as to what's going on and what he's picking up on in the fight that hardcore fans appreciate while Goldie will always be the announcer for the new watcher with tag lines and asking questions he already knows the answer to.
