UFC featherweight contender Kenny Florian will take a break from his training camp in preparation of facing Jose Aldo at UFC 136 to head to Brazil for commentary duties at UFC 134: Rio.

Florian, who has filled in as color commentator in several past shows, will be in attendance in Brazil to work alongside Mike Goldberg in the broadcast booth.

Regular UFC commentator Joe Rogan was unable to make the trip to Brazil due to filming obligations for his return to the NBC show Fear Factor that is currently in production.

I'm a big fan of Rogan but I enjoy when he takes breaks from time to time. Florian is awesome as a commentator and hopefully he'll be doing it more in the future.

Yeah, I like this. Florian is an awesome commentator and I hope he does it when his career is over. I like Bonnar as well, he would be a good fill in.

I threw out Couture's name, because I didn't know if Florian would do it with him training for Aldo.

But this is good.

I agree with you guys. I think stephen is the best fighter commentator followed by Ken flo and Mir could be the best if he stopped being so byest. I feel he's the most insightful out of the 3.

Florian is more than capable of filling in.

I wouldn't have minded seeing Mir maybe, or Randy.

No thanks....especially if they want to be taken seriously on Fox.

I like Florian but I wonder why they did not pick Mir.

i dont like Kenny, but as a commentator he isnt that bad. Couture would have been far better imo

Since this card is in Brazil, why not have Chael Sonnen fill in?
