He'll be back for sure. I think right now there's just no marketable fights for him. With him having already fought Liddell, Forrest, Alexander, and Rashad there's not much they can do with him til some of this sorts itself out.

Personally I still think there should be a rematch with Forrest, but that's just me talking and it doesn't matter anyway cuz now Forrest is dedicated to TUF. They might be setting him up with a match against Machida, but that would be months and months down the road.

Point is- I don't think it's the UFC hating on him as much as I think it's just that he is in a strange position as far as the rankings go.

Yeah i think its just that he has fought all meaningful competition right now and the rankings need to shift a bit so he has somebody to fight. They could have him fight a can but i dont think he wants to risk a loss because hes next in line for the title shot (or should be).

I agree, especially with the Forest re-match. I'm getting sick of TUF draging out title fights. If one of thoes guys gets injured like Serra did, I'm going to snap.

I think Rampage got injured after the Hendo fight so he should be healing up while coaching TUF that why by the time it ends and the time it airs they should already be into training for their fight. As far as Jardine goes I think he rises to the occasion when he's under pressure like in the Forrest and Liddell fights but takes guys lightly like GSP did with Serra. This is why he got whooped by Houston. If they put a challenging guy in front of Keith he will have a good fight but if they give him a can we could see him get upset.

It's a possibility.

From that article:


At the UFC 81 press conference, Dana White came very close to announcing who Wanderlei Silva’s next opponent would be - stopping short at the last second per Joe Silva’s urging.

One thing White did confirm though was when the match-up will take place.

"Wanderlei Silva will be fighting on the May card,” White said.

Earlier in the evening, I spoke with Keith Jardine. Jardine stated the following about his future:

"The UFC wants me to have a high profile big fight - a main event quality fight. So, it should be somebody really good - hopefully in May,” said Jardine.

Looking at the list of potential opponents for Jardine in May, I can only see one fighter that is not busy who fits the profile of being a main event or co-main event fight. That is Wanderlei Silva. The fact that Silva is also scheduled to be fighting in May appears to make the match-up all the more likely.

They should sign Rogerio Nogueira and have him face Jardine.

Yeah, I was kind of curious as to where Keith Jardine was too. If this whole Silva/Jardine thing is true this could be a sick fight! A slugfest for sure! Not sure it's a Main Event type of fight though. Could be a awesome Co-Main Event though. But who knows how the UFC thinks. There were some pretty weak Main Event fights last year, so this wouldn't be a bad Main Event.

Bringing in Little Nog could be a very interesting fight. i think another great fight for fans anyway would be against Silvia
