VANCOUVER, British Columbia – As the smell of hot dogs cooking on the street above wafted through Robson Square during Thursday afternoon's press conference, Kenny Florian's face seemed to betray the slightest quiver of agony.

After what he's been through just to get down to yet another weight class in his UFC career, it had to feel like just one more twist of the knife into his empty stomach.

As he made clear during the media workouts the day before, the cut to 145 pounds for the first time in his career requires no small amount of sacrifice and suffering. Fortunately, he's maintained a sense of humor in the face of starvation.

He joked at the press conference that he doesn't remember what food is, or what it tastes like. I'm wondering if this cut will actually hurt him in the long run.

Props for Kenny making the cut....but I see Diego Nunes taking it by decision.
