Kenny Florian made his 145-pound debut at UFC 131: "Dos Santos vs. Carwin" back on June 11 at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Also making its debut in "Hollywood North" were his patented "Hellbows," the razor-sharp elbow strikes that left a trail of leaky skulls throughout the lightweight division, most notably against Sean Sherk at UFC 64 and Joe Lauzon at UFC Fight Night 13.

Diego Nunes joined that prestigious list in a unanimous decision loss to "KenFlo" earlier this month, enduring (among other things) a few shots to the dome courtesy of some Bostonian elbow grease.

Never cared for Florian, and I'll never forget his fight with Alex Karalexis. He hit Alex with an elbow while pushing off the fence that split his nose. Florian automatically threw his hands up and smiled because he knew the fight would be stopped. What kind of fighter wants to win a fight due to a cut?

OMG is there going to bew some bad blood for an Aldo fight? Florian let's a few choice comments about Pederneiras fly and we could have ourselves some drama.

What's with the controversy here? I thought Florian won the fight convincingly, and didn't have to resort to cutting someone to get the win. That's the first time I've heard this argument, and it makes no sense.

His elbows are very legal. Florian is not a dirty fighter at all. I happen to like him, he is very technical. Cant wait for the fight with Aldo.

I can't remember how Florian throws them.

All I remember is in the Lauzon fight, it seemed like Florian got Lauzon on the back of the head, which is where Lauzon started bleeding from.

Totally agree with Kenny here. If big john says its ok, its ok.

This is just sour grapes. I'm often tempted to make excuses when I lose a jiu jitsu match, but I keep it to myself even if I think its a legit reason. Verbalizing this kinda stuff just makes you look like a child.
