With nine of his thirteen wins (13w, 4l) coming by way of submission, Kenny Florian will get another shot at the lightweight belt should he beat Gray Maynard this weekend in Boston at UFC 118, the very event where the divisional title will be decided between Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn.

“I’ve dreamed of fighting at home in a big arena since I was a kid. I don’t imagine losing. I’m going out there to make my dream come true,” remarks Florian, a Boston native.

The submission holds he used to rack up his wins show Kenny represents Jiu-Jitsu in MMA well. Indeed, the black belt displayed his ground skills well before he found success on the first season of the “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show, which opened the doors to the UFC for him.
