Kenny Florian (7-3 MMA, 6-2 UFC), “The Ultimate Fighter 1” middleweight runner-up who parlayed the TV appearance into a top contender’s standing in the UFC’s lightweight division, has confirmed he’ll next fight Joe Lauzon (16-3 MMA, 3-0 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 13 on April 2.

That should be a great fight! My heart says Joe but I have to go with my head and right now its saying Kenny. I will have to look into it a little more before I decide.

There are maybe 2 fighters right now in the UFC LW division that could beat Kenny Florian: BJ Penn and Joe Stevenson. I think that Kenny gets the loser of that fight and if he wins, then he gets a title shot at the end of the year. I'd love to see BJ/KenFlo for the LW title at the end of year show. Ever heard of jiu jitsu?

This is going to be a great fight. I think florian will end up the winner by either tko ref stoppage by strikes or a cut. This is the only reason i dont like elbows, because of the cuts. Not to bash Florian but i hate it when a fight is ended by a cut and elbows are the number one offender. but it is a good way to win a fight which is what these guys are going for, so who am i to say

i'm going to take Joe on this one. Kenny is an amazing fighter, but i just think Joe is going to come in hungrier.

Lauzon by TKO rd. 2.

I'd hate to see one of these guys lose. I think Florian should be too seasoned and skilled to lose this one.

I see this one going to Kenny Florian by complete destruction on the feet. Kenny will get ahold of him, get him against the fence and punish him.
