UFC lightweight contender Kenny Florian will serve as the color-commentator during the pay-per-view broadcast of the organization’s next event, UFC 83: Serra vs. St. Pierre II on April 19th at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The news comes from MMA Weekly, who had Florian on their daily radio show last night.
Florian will be filling in for usual commentator Joe Rogan, who will be unable to work the event with play-by-play announcer Mike Goldberg due to unspecified previous obligations, likely stemming from his career as a stand-up comedian.
It will be the first event that Rogan has been unable to work since UFC 64: Unstoppable in October 2006.
Florian is coming off of a victory over Joe Lauzon Wednesday night at UFC Fight Night 13. Florian stopped Lauzon with strikes in the second round.
