UFC lightwight contender Kenny “Ken-Flo” Florian will host a half-hour long online mixed martial arts show called “MMA Live” on

The weekly internet show will go live on Thursday nights at 7pm EST on

“(It’s) kind of a fast-paced show on the current news and events going on in the sport. There’s a whole lot of guys at ESPN that have been trying to get this done I guess for two years….Basically, I was contacted by ESPN about two weeks before my fight against (Joe) Lauzon, and there was some interest. They finally got the okay to do an MMA show, and they were interested in using me for this show,”

“It’s strictly going to be on It’s not going to be on TV as of right now…. Basically they’re going to do a run for three shows on and see what the response is, see how it does. Then if it goes well, we’ll do a regular thing on the Internet, and if it does even better, then possibly you’ll see it on TV.”
