    I have been getting tons of e-mails and myspace messages as to when I am going to fight next. Well, I am excited to announce that I will be back strong in the Octagon on April 5th at “The Pearl” in The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. My fight will be broadcast live on Spike TV as part of the UFC’s Ultimate Fight Night 9. I will be fighting the experienced and always dangerous Dokonojonsuke Mishima, who is a MMA star in his country of Japan.

    Sherk Post Fight Update

    Dear Friends,

    In my fight against Sean Sherk, I accomplished a few goals, but fell short of my dream. On the positive - I fought in a world title fight for the UFC, fought a 5 round war, got the respect of my opponent and put on a fight that UFC fans loved.

    Sherk Pre Fight Update

    Well Friends,

    Here we are again.

    After the Stout fight, I was able to take some needed time off to rest my back and body. I had been training nonstop since my fight with Kit Cope. These few weeks also enabled me to spend quality time with friends and family.

    When I resumed training, I attacked the mats, pads and bags as I usually do. In addition, I improved the strength in my back by doing power yoga, physical therapy sessions and by working on the Total Gym.

    Stout Post Fight Update

    It Takes A Team

    It felt great being back in the Octagon! I was prepared for anything. My victory was truly a team effort.

    Training for my fight against Sam began in January 2006 when I got word that I would be fighting him at UFC 58 (U.S.A. versus Canada) on March 4th. As many of you know, I injured my back right before the fight and was forced to drop out. At the time, it was a huge disappointment as I had trained hard and I hated letting down people who wanted to see me fight.

    Stout Prefight Update from Las Vegas

    Thu, 2006-06-22 08:14 — Kenny Florian

    Since late May I have been training in Las Vegas in preparation for my June 24th fight with Sam Stout on the Season Finale of The Ultimate Fighter 3. My fight will be the Main Event of the night. The show will be broadcast on Spike TV starting at 9pm.

    As my Muay Thai and MMA coach, Mark DellaGrotte, is filming TUF 4 in Las Vegas, I moved my camp out here to keep my timing and training sharp. Plus, it helped me get accustomed to the hot and dry weather.

    Getting Ready

    As I got off the treadmill on Saturday night, I don’t remember ever feeling as healthy or ready for my March 4th fight.

    On Sunday afternoon as I was packing, I felt a slight pain in my back. So, I decided to lie down and crack it. And then all of a sudden, I dropped to the floor, feeling the worst pain in my life. I could not get up from the floor and the pain in my lower back was brutal as my muscles in my lower back locked up.

    January 2006

    First, allow me to wish you all a belated Happy New Year!! Immediately after my last win over Kit Cope, I went back to training hard, because I expect 2006 to be a very busy and competitive year for me. Accordingly, I wish you all the same success that I hope to achieve this year.

    Many of you have been contacting me asking me when my next fight is, what event, who my opponent is, etc,

    Well, I am back from Vegas and it is good to be home in Boston. The KenFlo shirts I brought to Vegas were a big hit and I sold out of them. However, you can still get them at my online store and support the Flo movement!!
