do you think Keith Jardine can pull it together and get back into the UFC?

Keith “The Dean of Mean” Jardine is a highly reconized MMA veteran. He has noteable wins over Brandon Vera,and Former UFC LightHeavyweight champions Forrest Griffin, and Chuck Lidell. Jardine has always been a fan favorite due to his awkward style and the fact that he puts on extremely exciting fights. But “The Dean of Mean” finds himself at a crossroads in his MMA career.

after dropping 4 fights in a row in the UFC he was cut, and if that wasn’t enough he lost via split decision to a relatively unknown Trevor Prangley

    I love Keith Jardine and think hes an exciting fighter but he just doesnt have it anymore. I hope hes able to comeback but it doesnt look as if he will.

    Watching half these fights, it’s like you’re watching the UFC; Dailey v. Sokoudjou, for example.

    It’s part of the problem that the UFC faces, when cutting (what are now becoming) name brand fighters; people the (fight) public recognize, they give credit to the competition; the very same competition they’d like to stomp out.

    Where you might not go to see or PPV a card from a lesser organization featuring fighters… X vs.Y…you’re more apt to do so, when you recognize the names…Werdum, Jardine, Dailey…Bisping (sorry, couldn’t resist) et. al.

    Will he make it back – maybe. Will he stay – probably not. Will he be champ – never. Would I watch his fights – yes. Do I care what banner or organization he fights under/ with – no.

    @WingChun – Agreed.

    @Blunts – I would not call Trevor Prangley an “unknown.” He is a very tough well-rounded fighter. Though my “LowPick” was Jardine, if I were betting cash I would have went with Prangley. That is not to say that I necessarily felt he would win, but I knew the odds were off in terms of Prangley’s chances of winning. Hence, money to be made. Nevertheless, I know what you mean tho. Maybe to the most casual fans he would not be a recognizable figure seeings how he doesn’t fight in the UFC.

    i think jaardine still has potential. not to become a champion or anything but he can make it back to the ufc. most of his losses have been really close fights. as of now i think he gets a rematch with houston alexander.

    I like him to, but take this into account, his losses may have been close, but in the majority of them he was knocked out cold, W.Silva put him out, Alexander put him out, T.Silva put him out, Bader put him out and he was also knocked out early in his career, majority of the his knockouts were around him being 34-35 which is not a good age to get zapped even once, his reactions, speed and chin have been severely reduced permanently, I wish all the best for him and hope to see him back, but its not looking good :(

    Come on, guys.. He hasn’t won in over two years. Anyway, he and Chuck Liddell have a LOT in common, so how about this? Since they’re both 1-6 in their last 7, and they’ve fought before, how about a rematch? Either way, one of them would lose (for the 7th time in their last 8), and I personally think it’s funny seeing both of these guys fail repetitively when they swear up and down that they still have it. =x

    I agree, but the thing is there are people out there that would do great in the UFC so even losing outside the UFC doesnt mean your a horrible fighter.

    relatively well known*** :D ive known about prangley for awhile.. sence like around UFC 50 or something lol after he loss to Jeremy Horn by round 3 sub or decision i cant exactly remember. but Joey i think you have to agree with me on the fact that not alot of LowKickers really paid attention to the chances of Prangley. the only thing that made me not pick Prangley was because Jardine dropped 4 straight and i really thought they were going to train him like crazy at jacksons and he was going to come out with a dominating decision.. but no dice ):

    i guess my point is although they are both tough seasoned veterans Prangley isnt really a household name in MMA like Jardine is

    well he has lost most of his last fights and the ones that he did win with the exception of barry were against low caliber opponents. a comfort jardine never really got if you look at his fights all of them were against guy that were in line for a title shot

    @ Prince

    Doh! I should re-read before I post. My apologies to the thread on that one; Alexander v. Sokoudjou, is what I meant.

    I will do an extra 30 minutes of cardio today, in atonement.
