Former UFC competitor and broadcaster Kenny Florian is now aboard the PFL.
The PFL confirmed Florian’s addition Tuesday, adding that he will join fellow former competitor Randy Couture and analyst Sean O’Connell at the broadcast booth.
“I’m very excited to be a part of the PFL family and this season looks to be the best one yet,” Florian said in a press release. “Breaking down MMA fights and high level martial arts techniques is what I enjoy most, and I’m elated to be a part of the tremendous commentary team to get a chance to do just that.”
Florian debuted professionally in 2003 and started on the 2005 original season of The Ultimate Fighter, losing in the Finale to Diego Sanchez. He worked his way to a respectful 14-6-0 record, earring lightweight and featherweight title fights. He retired in 2011 and went into broadcasting for the UFC and ESPN.
“We are very excited to add someone as knowledgeable and charismatic as Kenny to our booth calling all the action this season alongside Randy and Sean,” PFL CEO, Peter Murray added. “With his passion for the sport and experience inside the cage, Kenny will bring excitement and wisdom to every call to ensure our fans enjoy our made-for-TV events. This team will bring invaluable insight every night, and coupled with the leadership of broadcast visionary George Greenberg, the PFL will be delivering a can’t miss production throughout 2021.”
