I was talking to my buddy about the Huerta/Florian fight and Muay Thai came up and I could have sworn that Florian had extensive skills in that area but my friend said that he wasn't any better than anyone else in MMA.

Now I don't want ten replies about his Chris Leben cut cause yeah I know he did cut him but I want someone who knows about him to tell me who's right.

I thought I heard Rogan or Goldberg say that he was an expert practitioner and had done a couple tours of Thailand but I could be making that up...

Can anyone help???

Yes, Florian is a Muay Thai specialist and a BJJ black belt.

Ken Florian is simply an underappreciated amazing fighter who is great at a lot of aspects of MMA, and Muay Thai is one of his best. Take a look at his fights. I hope he beats Huerta, Im a definite fan of both of them, but Florian is one of my favorites.

Kenny hasnt got the best Muay Thai that ive seen in mma, i think his Muay Thai skills are over rated becouse of his viscous elbows. It definantly above average though, theirs no doubt in my mind hes got better stand up that Roger.

Florian's Muay Thai is damn good but i wouldnt call him an expert by any means. Hes still got a good bit of room to improve but it is still effective and devastating none the less.

Once again, yes. Florian has great muay thai and will use it to defeat Huerta and his "head out and swing" method of striking.

florian trains in (near) boston with mark delagrote (sp??) and yes he has gone to thailand a few times because every year delagrote goes and trains at the orignal sityotong camp there.

yes his muay thai skills are very good, not the best ones but he does have some nasty elbows. Can t wait to see the overrated huerta get his ass kicked

well like some others have said, he did in fact go to Thailand so you are not making it up. however, he was a black belt in BJJ before he started to really get into Muay Thai and i think Rogan really over-hypes him. his Muay Thai is definitely better than the average fighter so to say it isn't is pretty ignorant...but i wouldn't say he is the best Muay Thai practitioner on the UFC by any means.

Can I ask what makes you hate Huerta? Hates a strong word, besides Huerta brings it every fight and is a very down to Earth guy. He's a great ambassador to the sport.
