That crafty Kenny Florian has done it again. Just one week after denying to MMAjunkie that he had any knowledge of a potential bout with Japanese import Takanori Gomi, Florian is expected to reveal on today's edition of ESPN.com's "MMA Live" that he will face "The Fireball Kid" at UFC Fight Night 21 in North Carolina. News of the impending announcement was first posted on the official Twitter account of "MMA Live," a show that Florian co-hosts. Fellow co-hosts Jon Anik and Franklin McNeil have since followed suit.

Wish the UFC would build Gomi up a bit before sending him into the deep end. Not saying hand him gimmie fights but I think he is outclassed vs Florian.

Cant pick against Florian he looked really good against guida. Late TKO or Sub possibly but I might take a UD.
