    I haven't seen him much in anything MMA related lately, is he still working for Fox Sports? What is he doing now?

    ESPN chose not to sign him, so he was left out. They dont really have an MMA show, so I suppose they didnt envision a role for him. He does some sort of podcast with Jon Anik, which I cant imagine ever feeling compelled to listen to. Also works as the co-host of battlebots, which is a funny enough waste of time.

    I actually forgot about Florian tbh, even though I like him.

    He is writing his memoirs: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... it was the winter of despair" - Kenny Florian

    Yeah pretty decent gig i'd say. I am always happy to see former fighters find other work after retiring from fighting.

    Battlebots. He's a great host (much better than his side kick) I used to watch with my kids when they were little but kind of got away from it. Tuned in a again a couple of years ago to see Kenny and all I can say is, If you haven't watched it in a few years, check it out. The Bots are on another level now. ;)

    Not gonna lie, there was a stretch of time he was one of my favorite fighters, became a big fan watching him fight on TUF and post-TUF compete well above his weight class. Tore through LW division but BJ couldnt be beat in that time.
