Keith Jardine talks about fighting the best in the talent-rich 205-pound class, including former champions, Chuck Liddell, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, Wanderlei Silva and Forrest Griffin, as well as other tough guys such as Brandon Vera, Houston Alexander and Wilson Gouveia.

This is an interesting style match-up. As is always the case with any fight involving Keith Jardine

Yep, it's either he gets TKO'ed early or he will prove to be technically superior to Thiago. Let's hope it's over in the first!

Jardine should decision Thiago Silva....I've always thought Silva to be a bit overrated.

Indeed, I see Jardine finishing Thiago in the 1st...or later rounds.

well ****, out of those who were mentioned he is 3-5 against the top tier fighters. He hasnt fought Alexander nor Thiago. I guess I wouldn't mind seeing some rematches. its one thing Jardine does and thats make every fight interesting to watch regardless of the outcome. I hope he works on his ground game, maybe try for a takedown or 2 in a fight to mix things up. Otherwise fighters are going to get used to his aggressive unorthodox stand up. it will be interesting to see what he does with Thiago.

More like Silva is in for another win on his record type of night! Silva will be 14-1 a week from now.

And Jardine is overrated as well if not more so, him and forrest both, well maybe not Forrest anymore thanks to another Silva, hopefully this Silva can end Jardine's

BTW I'm willing to make an AV bet until the October PPV on this fight!

As for this fight...I'm going with Jardine to win via TKO.

Greg Jackson and his boys know how to beat Thiago Silva. Jardine's a tough SOB. Overrated? Please. Not as good as the fighters he lost to, maybe. But there's no way in hell he's overrated. That's nonsense.

I don't at all think that Jardine is overrated. Thats just nonsense. He might not be a top 5 guy but he can surely hang with almost anybody. I also think Jardine, although he has a suspect chin and is fighting a KO ace. That he'll be Thiago. I see him beating him up for three rounds for a UD.

Jardine seems like the wild card in the LHW division to me.
I'm always reluctant to count him out.
