Ken Flo is on point

Florian spoke on MMAWeekly radio and voiced his desire to fight again before the year is up, despite the fact that he would be risking a title shot at BJ Penn should he lose. Good move on Florian's part, because I think he needs to beat a bigger 155 lb fighter to show he is ready for BJ and a fight against the winner of Sherk/Griffin is a perfect opportunity. Kenny is on an impressive win streak, but most of his wins have come against classic 155 lb fighters. The reality is that in the UFC, the top 155 lb fighters are mostly guys who used to fight at 170 lbs(Ken Flo started his career at 170 lbs) so they are actually pretty big. I would say Huerta fits into that "big" 155 lb category and his win on Saturday night was a good one, but it was a far cry from the dominating performances he has had over the last year. I firmly believe that Ken Flo's technical skills are top notch, but I think he needs to put on some more muscle so he can handle the bigger guys and take advantage of his superior technical skills.
