Kenny Florian Contemplating Coming Out Of Retirement

Kenny Florian (14-6) is toying with the idea about returning to action after announcing his retirement in late May of this year. A reoccurring injury to his back was Florian’s reason for calling it a career.

“As far as the injury goes, I’m just doing my best to really get healthy,” said Florian on MMA Junkie Radio. “I’m still trying to get healthy and get back to a regular training schedule because of my actual schedule and because of the injury.”

While away from active competition, Florian has been with the UFC in the commentator role.

“It’s tough seeing the fighters going out when you know you can’t go in there,” said Florian. “I don’t know if the competitor ever leaves you. It’s tough dialing it down. There are times I’ve had to turn down the intensity and just be a normal human being on fight night.”

About a possible comeback Florian said “never say never.”

“I’ve definitely felt improvement, very recently in the past month,” said Florian. “I haven’t had that constant pain I’ve been dealing with. That’s been a great sign. Physically, I feel much, much better.”
