Kenny Florian Reveals His One Career Regret

In an interview with the official UFC website recently, Kenny Florian discussed his one career regret.

While most would quickly point to Florian’s losses in UFC title matches, the semi-retired fighter went in a different direction.

If there is one regret, I wish that I came to compete against Diego Sanchez…I feel like I beat myself before anyone else. I feel like I went out there and let the moment beat me. I don’t know what would have happened in that fight, but I didn’t compete; that was not me out there. I went out there and I was a nervous wreck. Before I knew what was happening, I was mounted and bloodied up. I wish that – if there was one thing I could take back – that I could just go out there and compete, and just fight him.

Florian was just 2-1 at the time of the Sanchez bout, and was defeated in the first round for the title of Ultimate Fighter. He went on, however, to compete three times for UFC championships.

Since a 2011 decision loss to Jose Aldo for the UFC featherweight title, Florian (14-6) has worked extensively with the UFC on Fuel TV and Fox.
