There has been a lot speculation and hint dropping lately that a fight was brewing between former Pride fighter Wanderlei Silva and Ultimate Fighting Championship contender Keith Jardine. That fight is about to become a reality.

“I’m leaving right now to sign the Jardine fight contract and you are the first ones to know officially,” said Silva on his website on Friday. “I am starting to train hard again to be able to get the victory.”

Wandy needs to get through this one, and drop weight classes. There's no reason for him to be in LHW

Awesome...looking forward to this one.

Something that bugs me, however...

If Silva is "the former Pride fighter"...why isnt Jardine the "former King of the Cage fighter" or "former Pancrase fighter" or "former M-1 fighter" or any of the other multiple orgs he's fought for?

Just irritates me...Silva is now a UFC fighter, until & unless he no longer fights for the UFC. Whata concept.

Ok, I'm done venting. Thx.

Because none of those were as big as PRIDE. And no one think those orgs. have as much talent as the ufc or PRIDE.

Wandy is one of the greatest LHW's ever, there is no reason for him to drop weight.

Wandy got KO by Hendo, do you really thing that it's mean that Hendo is a better strriker than Liddell.

Jardine will be well prepared. I like Wandy, one of my favorite, but he is not the same since the CC KO.

WHAT??! not the same????
he wasn't the same for the Hendo fight.. but I suggest that you look for the UFC 79 video, and tell me if Wandy wasn't slugging it out w/Liddell ... of course when he dropped him he stayed back because of the rules otherwise he would stomp and kick him on the ground

If I hear one more person mention something about Wandy dropping weight classes I'm going to go on a rampage. What is with everyone all of the sudden needing to change weight classes just because they lost a fight???

Wandy is one of the greatest, and will always be one of the greatest LHW's to have ever lived in this world.

Dan might have a powerful left hand, but i find it hard to beleive its as powerful as chucks if im being honest

This has fight of the night written all over it. Jardine is hungry for a title shot and Wandy is looking to establish himself along the top 10 in the UFC. This fight is going to end violently, with Silva ending it with a bunch of brutal knees

Should be a classic fight, especially if Jardine fights as smart as he has been in his recent fights.

In reference to my previous post; Was mostly unserious. I could really care less if they refer to Silva as a Former Pride fighter, former Ms. America or Former Chief of Staff of Latvia. Just thought it was a silly thing to add as a qualifier since they are both UFC fighters now.
Lighten up, for f*** sake.

See his left hand... is his weaker hand.
The right hand is the one fighters should fear. It's just the Left hand occasionally knocks fighters silly too.

Isn't Jardine getting the short end of the stick in terms of any ranking system there may be?
Jardine just won a decision against Liddell, Wanderlei just lost a decision to Liddell. Therefore shouldn't Jardine be fighting further up the ladder? Stricltly speaking in terms of "rank".
What do you think?

I personally don't think he's ready to be above where he's fighting, and I think Wanderlei is going to prove to be the better fighter where ever the battle takes place. I think his win over Chuck was more a case of Chuck not being ready than it was his ability to beat Chuck.

In any case, it just doesn't seem "fair and square" to have him fighting the guy who just lost to the guy he just beat. you know? Should he not be the next in line for a title shot? His loss to Houston Alexander aside, he's beaten Forrest and Chuck this last year and both of them seem to be much closer to a title shot than he is. Again, I don't think he's ready for a title shot, but it doesn't seem fair to him to not be getting one. Make sense?
