“[Joe Lauzon is] definitely a very aggressive fighter. If you would have asked me that 3 years ago, 2 years ago, 1 year ago or even 8-6 months ago, maybe he is [meaner]. But right now I think I’ve changed a lot of the way I approach the game. My intensity and focus is just far and away greater. I’m very intense out there and have bad intentions for my opponents, and I’m sure Joe does too. I want him to want to beat me, to come forward. I want an aggressive fight. I don’t want to go against a guy that I have to chase or that lays on top of me. I want to see it all, man…. I would agree with that, back then from what Rudy [BJ Penn’s head coach] knew of me. That’s the beauty of things. We constantly train and improve. I want every fight, I want them scouting out that Kenny Florian. It’s a different Kenny Florian, they’re scouting the wrong guy. There preparing for Joe Shmoe when I’m actually version 3 or 4.”

– According to InsideFighting.com, Kenny Florian is unconcerned that BJ Penn and his trainer, Rudy Valentino, will be able to provide Joe Lauzon with any helpful inside information when the two throwdown during the main event at UFC Fight Night 13 at the Broomfield Events Center in Broomfield, Colo., on April 2. Florian trained with the pair for several weeks while in Hawaii after his loss to Sean Sherk in 2006 and now Lauzon trains with them full-time.

So stoked for this card, I will be there. Picking Kenny, but hopefully Joe wins so that BJ can make Joe fight him. Sensei vs grasshopper would be too sweet.
