UFC featherweight contender Kenny Florian will take a break from his training camp in preparation of facing Jose Aldo at UFC 136 to head to Brazil for commentary duties at UFC 134: Rio.

Florian, who has filled in as color commentator in several past shows, will be in attendance in Brazil to work alongside Mike Goldberg in the broadcast booth.

Regular UFC commentator Joe Rogan was unable to make the trip to Brazil due to filming obligations for his return to the NBC show Fear Factor that is currently in production.

A regular contributor to ESPN’s MMA Live, Florian has commentated on several shows prior to UFC 134 and will pick things up for the UFC’s return to Brazil for the first time in many years.

Joe Rogan is expected to return for the UFC’s next show set for Sept. 17 in New Orleans.

    only think left is replace mike goldberg with bas rutten

  • afk

    i think that bas rutten and joe rogan would be entertaining as hell… but who would feed us promotional information and mention dana white’s twitter account? :O

  • j-k-martin

    Kenny is good on mma live. I’m sure he will do fine.

    Now if we could get Randy Couture back in there also. I think Randy brought so much credibility to the whole commentating thing.

    Not much of a Kenny the fighter fan but as a commentator I’d take him over Joe Rogan any day….sh1t, I’d take just about anybody over Rogan, he’s fkn annoying

      you’re annoying. joe rogan is a mma encyclopedia

  • G Logan

    I wouldn’t mind seeing Frank Mir take the color commentary spot. I like the way he calls the WEC fights. He’s very technical in nature.

  • BigGuy

    I am just glad to see that Florian is readying himself for his next job after Aldo mops the floor with him.

  • devine22

    G Logan i also agree Frank Mir does a great job

    Kenny is a decent analyst on ESPN, but Bonnar and Mir are better commentators. Bonnar was the perfect guy for Pettis’ showtime kick. “That was like something out of the Matrix! He ran up there like a ninja!”
