Kenny Florian vs. Evan Dunham at UFC 127 in Las Vegas, Nevada

Kenny Florian himself yesterday announced on this weeks edition of MMA Live that he had verbally agreed to the fight crowd favourite, Evan Dunham in a lightweight contest at UFC 127 in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 5th, 2011.

Florian picked up soild submission wins over Clay Guida and Takanori Gomi, following his title fight loss to BJ Penn, but lost yet another disappointing high profile fight when he lost via decision to wrestler, Gray Maynard at UFC 118 in August.

Dunham was on 11 fight undefeated streak where he picked up wins over the likes of Marcus Aurelio, Per Eklund, Efrain Escudero and Tyson Griffin. Only to see it come to an end when he lost a close split decision to former UFC lightweight champion, Sean Sherk at UFC 119 just last month.
