JNPO Classic: Kenny Florian interview, big UFC announcements


Our run through the archives of my old radio show -- The WGAM MMA Show -- continues with the June 9, 2011, edition of the program, hosted by yours truly and producer PJ Huot.

On this edition, we discussed a slew of announcements made by UFC president Dana White prior to UFC 131 including the signing of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones vs. Rampage Jackson, the creation of the flyweight division, non-title main events going to five rounds, and Nick Diaz dropping the Strikeforce welterweight title.

Yes, that was all in one day.

We then did an in-depth interview with Kenny Florian prior to his co-main event against Diego Nunes at UFC 131, Florian's debut at featherweight. 

We then previewed UFC 131, headlined by Junior dos Santos vs. Shane Carwin and also featuring the UFC debut of Donald Cerrone and a guy I called Chris WEED-man.

The time machine is here, so jump in and head back to six years ago in the world of MMA.
