He continued this run with another victory in a fight against Bobby McAndrews, submitting him with a kimura. He would suffer his first defeat against Drew Fickett and the match would get Dana White’s attention. Dana would then invite Florian to become part of “The Ultimate Fighter”.

He joined the first season of “The Ultimate Fighter” as a middleweight, and made it to the finals before losing to Diego Sanchez. He returned in the “Ultimate Fight Night”, defeating Alex Karalexis through a vicious elbow across the nose. He then went on to fight Kit Cope and won via a rear naked choke submission.
