Ultimate Fighter alum and UFC veteran Kenny Florian is facing the very real possibility that his career may be over.

Florian told the Boston Herald “a lumbar herniated disc in his lower back has put his future in jeopardy.”

That's a real bummer. Despite the way his career has been going lately he'll be remembered for a long time. Sometimes it's just too easy to forget how successful and important to the sport some fighters once were.

I wish a corner-threatening injury had hit Keith Florian instead.

I hate to see something like this to anyone, but I'd be a liar if I said I'd miss him if he retires.

I prefer him in the studio or cage side.

He would make a great commentator or analyst

Thats bad news, tough to come back from an injury like that, hope he recovers well, he's had an amazing career so far, it'd be a shame for him to go out on these terms.

yeah that sucks. even though i really dont like Florian, i was hoping he would retire after getting KTFO or after a few more losses. cant say i will miss him fighting, but this is a sad way of *potentially* retiring

Damn, I was really looking forward to him fight for the Featherweight title

Seriously though, it would suck if his career is cut a little short due to injury. It's nice to see athletes go out on their terms, not by injury.

He should have no problem continuing his career as a commentator and analyst.

The only Florian fight I still was interested in was a rematch with Diego
