UFC 131 Fight Card: 5 Things to Watch for in Kenny Florian’s Featherweight Debut

UFC 131: Kenny Florian vs. Diego Nunes

Bleacher Report's Dwight Wakabayashi:

Kenny Florian will make his featherweight debut at UFC 131 in Vancouver on June 11, and I for one am looking forward to seeing it. Florian is dropping down after two legitimate runs at the 155-pound title and will face tough Brazilian and WEC veteran Diego Nunes who is coming off his first win in the UFC.

It is always interesting when a fighter switches weight divisions and this is no different with Florian. It will be all about adjustments for him and I'm sure he will be in peak shape and ready to roll on fight night.

I am looking forward to this match-up big time and will be in the building that night, and when I zoom in on Ken Flo, I will be looking for some specific things that are questions in my mind in regards to his decision to drop down and his game in general.

Here are five things to watch for in Kenny Florian's featherweight division debut.

5. Will he make this a stand up war?

Florian's stand up—and Muay Thai in general—is well known and respected, yet that is also the base of Nunes' game. Will Kenny look to out bang Nunes to try and make a point that he is the new big bully in town?

If so, we could be in for some fireworks here and I must take Florian to prevail on points.
