Fighter Kenny Florian will take on Clay Guida at UFC 107 in Memphis, Tennessee, on Saturday. Read more below.
As you are probably well aware of by now, UFC 107 was supposed to feature Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. Rashad Evans as the main event. Due to Jackson turning chicken on us, that bout was canceled. No need to worry though, because there are plenty of terrific fights scheduled for the evening including Florian vs. Guida.
The other notable bouts on the fight card look something like this:
B.J. Penn vs. Diego Sanchez (Lightweight title)
Cheick Kongo vs. Frank Mir
Thiago Alves vs. Paulo Thiago
Kenny Florian has worked his way to the top of the UFC lightweight totem poll twice already in his career, and each time he has just fallen short of winning the belt. So what is one to do in this situation? I’m confident that most fighters would hang up their hat, or perhaps only fight here and there for the paycheck, but not Florian.
Why keep striving for such a difficult goal to achieve though? The answer is, because Florian, a master in the art of positive thinking, is convinced that he can be champ.
“The title is still the number one goal. That’s why I’m in this, and I know I can get there. Just doing the things that I’m doing now, I know I’m gonna get back there – I know I can and I know I can beat the best in the world.”
He said in an interview with UFC.com
