Kenny Florian Moving Up North

Nate DoubleAnalyst IFebruary 9, 2009

Boston based MMA commentator, fighter and UFC No. 1 lightweight contender Kenny Florian is reportedly heading north to train with George St. Pierre and Firas Zahabi at the Tri-Star gym.

In addition to Florian, welterweight veteran Karo Parisyan will be relocating to train with the punishing Zahabi.

I said it as soon as GSP was done pounding Penn. KenFlo needs to head north and train with those guys. Florian is already a cardio machine with good stand up and high-level submission skills. Pairing up with GSP, Zahabi, and the Tri-Star team only makes him all the more dangerous.
