When Forrest Griffin (16-4 MMA, 7-2 UFC) shocked Quinton "Rampage" Jackson in July and claimed the UFC's light-heavyweight title, many pointed to Griffin's success as validation for the the viability of "The Ultimate Fighter" as a means to find new talent for the organization.

And while many pointed to the most recent season of the program as proof that the show had outlived its need, undefeated Rashad Evans (12-0-1 MMA, 7-0-1 UFC) believes his upcoming bout with Griffin proves the remaining value of the series.

Good interview. It was interesting to hear that Jardine is going to be emulating Forrest. It's something I didn't take into account. Jardine is actually a very similar fighter to Forrest as he has a similar build, likes to fight on the outside, and has great kicks...even their chin is similar. Should be a great partner for Evans to train with in preparation for this fight.
