  1. Although largely expected, Kenny Florian was surely happy to learn that his UFC 91 co-main event fight with Joe Stevenson will earn the winner a guaranteed title shot. For real this time.

    UFC President Dana White promised the winner a shot at B.J. Penn's lightweight belt during today's UFC 91 press conference in the main lobby of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

    Florian is coming off a victory over Roger Huerta at August's UFC 87 event. Prior to the fight, White said the winner was likely to get a title shot. But after Florian posted a unanimous-decision victory, Penn was instead booked to fight UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, and Florian was scheduled to fight Stevenson.

    I thought Kenny was supposed to get a shot anyway. Didn't he have the option to wait if he wanted until BJ finished losing to GSP?

    That was a good fight, Kenny dominated. Always been a fan of him since the first Ultimate fighter. Look forward to seeing BJ lose to GSP and then hopefully to Kenny.

    I could see GSP winning, but I'm not so sure.
