Kenny Florian recently said he hopes to return to action in early 2011, and it looks like it'll come in February at UFC 127. While not yet announced he's expected to meet Evan Dunham at the event on February 5. Florian recently revealed on "MMA Live" that he's verbally agreed to the fight.

Article

UPDATE Kenflo says yea, agent says nay. Dunham's camp says they have not agreed to the fight, verbally or otherwise, and no date is set. Sources did make it clear the fight could still happen, but despite what some sites say it is NOT official at this time.

Maaaaan....looks like UFC 127 is going to be one of those cards where they are trying to make a statement!

Can't call this fight yet, but i'm rooting for Dunham. I'm tired of seeing Kenny Choke in huge fights

This will be interesting to see if Dunham uses his wrestling to win rounds, i dont think he will beat florian on the feet.

Kenny just can't get a break...

This is a tough fight to pick. Kenny has only really ever lost to people who can out wrestle him, Dunham might be able to do that but he isn't the kind of bulldozer that Sean Sherk and Gray Maynard are. I think this fight will be close on the feet and even closer on the ground.

I don't know how anyone could argue either guy is heavily advantaged.

giving Dunham a contender after a controversial loss i think they are sending a statement...
Dunham wins by TKO late or split dec..

Don't get too excited yet, a couple of updates from Weekly:
Dunham's camp says no agreements, verbal or otherwise, are in place. Dunham has not yet accepted the fight and no date is set.
Florian's agent also says it's not official either.
