The Ultimate Fighting Championships officially announced TUF 1 cast member Kenny “Kenflo” Florian is done fighting. The sad announcement came at The Ultimate Fighter LIVE weigh-ins yesterday in Las Vegas.

“I’m just so thankful to the UFC and everyone here for everything they have done. Fighting found me and I’m a much better person because of it. I’m happy…. I’ve dealt with injuries in the past, but back in November I was training and hurt my back. It just hasn’t quite been the same … I re-injured it a few weeks back. So, it’s been tough. I haven’t been able to train. And I’m the type of person who never wants to do anything half-ass. If I’m going to train for a fight, I want to be able to do it 100 percent. [The decision] has been several months [in the making]. It’s been very, very hard. It’s been tough.”

So whats next for Kenny?

    The sport's going to miss him he was a great fighter. He just wasn't fast or strong enough to get the strap.
