He holds several, several, titles in MMA but lost to Sherk in a decision. I just kinda liked him since he had alot of heart and still stood toe to toe all bloodied up. Is he still in the UFC? And if he is does anybody know when he'll fight next

Technically he didn't really go "toe to toe" with Sherk... More like belly to belly or something... Haha, just kidding.

Yeah, I like Kenflo but I'm not really sure what I think of his abilities. I only saw him on TUF 1 and then versus Sherk, so I'll have to watch some of his other fights. His website says he's got a fight scheduled, so check his site to find out when.

Florian is a mediocre fighter, at best.

Well, from what I've seen, he got dominated by Chris Leben, Diego Sanchez, and Sean Sherk. Now granted both Leben and Sanchez were out of his weight division by quite a bit, but the fights I have seen him in he hasn't done well.

I was more impressed with his defense in the Sherk fight as he was able to last through 5 rounds of ground 'n' pound, and he's definitely tough as nails, but I'm not sure if he's got the stuff to make it as a real contender. I don't know, as I said before I have only seen TUF 1, the finale, and his Sherk fight so maybe I'm missing something.

Florian definitely has some skill, although he hasn't had the best opportunity to put it all together and show everyone just yet. He took a beating from Leben and ended up beating him. He took another beating from Sanchez at the finale, never gave up, but was still beaten. He looked good against Alex Karalexis and damn near tore his nose off with that elbow. He told Sam Stout his entire gameplan for the fight, followed said gamplan and finished Stout in the first round. He even looked good against Sherk, but he was clearly outmuscled and controlled for the majority of the fight.

I think Florian can bring the fight, he just needs a stylistic match up that will not only test him, but allow him to make himself look good.

kflo is a really tough guy who can take some punishment, but i wouldnt really consider him underrated. he got a title shot for a reason: he's a quality fighter. he's been beat badly by guys outside of his weight class, and he got beat in a gnp clinic by sherk. i just dont see him as a contender.
