Still hungry for title, UFN 21’s Kenny Florian eyes Boston next, maybe Gray Maynard

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Twice UFC lightweight contender Kenny Florian (13-4
MMA, 11-3 UFC) has climbed to the top of the division only to fall short

But after his latest failure in a bid for the belt, Florian has bounced
back with impressive wins over Takanori Gomi and Clay Guida.

While thoughts of a title fight still fill Florian’s mind, it’s a
vacation next, and then a date in Beantown – and perhaps Gray Maynard.
