OMG Kenny. The top 8 Twitter comments from the Kenny Florian article plagiarism scandal

Oh Kenny. As a writer plagiarism is quite possibly the worst crime you could commit. Yesterday UFC analysis, TUF finalist, and writer Kenny Florian was accused (and caught) of basically copying/pasting an entire section from writer Lee Wylie’s December 2015 YouTube video. Florian lifted most of Wylie’s words and then applied them to his own preview story about TJ Dillashaw versus Dominick Cruz.

Weak. Lame. Kennnnnnny.

Wylie’s video

After Florian got caught Fox Sports added a note to the Dillashaw-Cruz post.

(Editor’s Note: Language in this breakdown borrows from written material in a video of an in-depth look at the defensive boxing prowess of Willie Pep by boxing analyst Lee Wylie. The original version of this story did not contain this credit. We regret the oversight.)
