Kenny Florian suffers serious injury, likely career ending

Hearing the symptoms of numbness and tingling in the legs is something you never want to hear, especially for an athlete. This is what Kenny Florian recently had to say after suffering a lumbar herniated disc in his lower back while lifting back in November. Specialist are all saying the same, it’s time to retire…

It’s possible, unfortunately, said Kenny Florian. I’ve kind of been going back-and-forth with some of the doctors, so it’s possible. I’m going to see. As of right now, obviously I can’t compete and train like I was at all. I’m just kind of doing what I can and hoping that things heal up and get better. I’m just kind of in a holding pattern. That’s why I decided to do this commentary for the time being and take this next six months to really heal up and try to make some money on the side. It sucks. The last couple of months I’ve just been figuring out what’s going on and what I’m going to do.”

“It’s not good. That’s why I’m trying to stay hopeful. We’ll see. I’ve been out here in (LA) doing this show every week for ‘UFC Tonight’ for Fuel TV and doing some other things. I’m just hoping that it can heal up and get better and then see if I can go back to doing what I was doing. So far, I still need to rest. If I go to do something physical, I’m just not able to do it. That pain is coming back.”
