Posted on various websites lately....Looks like the Bleacher Report is the source, so take it for what it's worth.

It appears former two-time lightweight title contender, Kenny Florian is in the process of dropping to 145 pounds in search of a title fight against ultra-talented Brazilian, Jose Aldo down the road despite talking smack about Melvin Guillard in recent weeks.

The rumor really picked up Friday afternoon when fellow UFC lightweight Melvin Guillard was a guest on Heath Herring and Jay Pagliaro’s “The Show” radio show.

When asked about a potential fight with Florian, Guillard said that he had talked to UFC President Dana White earlier in the day and that White had informed him that Florian was in the process of, “dropping to 145.”

Florian was all for welcoming Aldo to the 145 pound ranks at the end of 2010, offering to square off with the Brazilian while he was still the WEC champion and looking for a legit challenge

It all depends on how/who Kenny fights first @ 145, before everyone gets excited about Aldo/Florian.

Kenny's giving a giant F U to everyone who said Melvin was too easy a fight for him to call out. Don't YALL feel crunchy?

wow.. now why did he call out Melvin? this is where Kenny needs to be but he shouldn't have made that call if his intentions were to drop.

To keep his name at the top of the news, not a bad idea, Melvin just came off a pretty high visibility win, Kenny just jumped on the hype train long enough to be seen, then dropped the news of his own.

145 needs a legit, big named gate keeper too I guess. On a serious note, I think he is more competitive at 45 anyway.
