I used to really like Kenny Florian, but he lost me as a fan after the Gray Maynard fight. It seems like Florian can dish it out but hates taking it. I'm in the dark in regards to Nunes so I'll avoid making a blind guess on this one. When I pick the guy I know, they've been losing as of late.

Theres a good chance Ken Flo will look like he has aids after this weight cut. Not sure how it will affect him yet.

Florian is the better fighter here.

His striking is better, his BJJ is better, he should be the bigger man (strangely...) and he's the more experienced fighter.

And, Nunes doesn't have elite wrestling and that pretty much is Florian's kryptonite (Maynard, Sherk, Sanchez) ...... + BJ.

The only (big) X-factor for this fight is (of course), how the weight cut will affect Florian for this fight.
He looked pretty skinny (anorexic) when cutting weight for 155.

145 should be even tougher for his body.

He said he talked to expert nutritionists and they told him everything should be OK for him.

Florian should take this, if somehow his body doesn't shut down in the middle (or before) the fight.

.



BELIEVE!

I don't like Kenny, but I really don't see him losing this. He's better in every area. Unless of course the added cut really hurts him.

Yea, I like Nunes here too

He's got some great kicks and Kenny doesn't really defend well against kicks.
