UFC President Dana White giveth, and then he taketh away.

Such is the lesson learned by UFC lightweight Kenny Florian (10-3 MMA, 8-2 UFC), who was all but promised a second shot at the lightweight title in the months building up to his UFC 87 bout with Roger Huerta -- only to have the opportunity taken away.

But as Florian recently told TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), the official radio partner of MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), the chance to improve his game is just as important as another chance at the belt.

Even though im a big Florian fan, its impossible not to prefer BJ vs GSP at the expense of Kenny's title shot. I hope he beats Joe Daddy and then gets another shot at the crown. Joe Daddy will be a great test of how his wrasslin' has come along since losing to Sherk. Mayhaps he'll end up rematching Sherk if Sherk wins again

After GSP whoops BJ. Florian will get his shot. I think he will dispatch Stevenson, in an epic way. Elbows and more blood that BJ spilt.

Joe's wrestling should come into play big time in this fight imo. I think he can win a UD.
