Retired fighter-turned-FOX Sports analyst Kenny Florian is in some hot water, and it all stems from a sudden bout of plagiarism.
In the ramp up to this weekend’s UFC Fight Night 81 event in Boston, M.A., Florian provided some on-camera analysis that ultimately was a near word-for-word transcription of a breakdown published on TheFightCity.com – oops.
When Florian was called out on it on social media, he issued an apology, but alas, in the real world of mainstream media plagiarism is a big “no-no”, and today his bosses at FOX Sports suspended him.

Believe it or not, plagiarism is a pretty prevalent issue in the world of online media. That said, do you think Florian deserved to be suspended?
