“Seems a lot of people like to say “Kenny Florian — that guy chokes in the big fights,” but it is simply not true.
You have to look at fights in context and not just oversimplify stuff. There is a reason to each and every loss I have, and the fights need to be looked at in the context of my whole career. I have never choked in a fight. Each and every fight — whether victory or defeat – has been part of a greater learning experience. I’m still learning and working things out today. Nobody in mixed martial arts, not Anderson Silva, Jon Jones or anyone else, has figured this sport out yet. We are all still striving to improve and find the answers.
This is possibly my last shot at a UFC title — I know that. Thinking about things realistically, I may not get another chance if I fail to come through with this one. That’s not something I try to think about too much, though. All I’m thinking about right now is taking this opportunity against Aldo with both hands and then going out and showing the world I can beat a guy that I seriously believe I can beat …”
