Oh Kenny. As a writer plagiarism is quite possibly the worst crime you could commit. Yesterday UFC analysis, TUF finalist, and FoxSports.com 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.
