And few are as thoughtful and articulate about the ebbs and flows of the fighting life. Sunday on the Sherdog Radio Network "Rewind," the recently-retired three-time UFC title contender joins Jack Encarnacao for a Sitdown interview that takes listeners from his formative days grappling on his basement rug to his final fight against Jose Aldo after a vicious weight cut.
From resolving to risk his life before stepping through the curtain to joyfully ceding holidays to his martial pursuits, Florian makes several surprising observations about the universal struggles of a fighter.
Better know MMA. Don't miss the Sunday Sitdown with Kenny Florian, Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on the Sherdog Radio Network.
