If Jardine utilizes his wrestling, I can definitely see him pulling off an upset. If he chooses instead to bang with Gegard, most likely it will be an early night. Mousasi is certainly the favorite but he has some major holes in his game that can be exposed by an experienced well-rounded fighter like Jardine.

I could see Jardine getting a title shot against Henderson if he wins.

Jardine says he has a hard time turning down fights.

The winner of this fight is probably getting a title shot regardless of who it is.

Trevor Prangley deserves the fight because he beat Jardin recently, but styles make fights, and Jardine has a chance here. If Jardine can push the pace non stop, I see Gegard getting tired in the third round. Jardine has outstruck better strikers before, Vera, Liddel, did well vs Rampage, but Jardine has not been winning recently so I expect him to be ko'd in the first, Jardine has a good chin, but getting hit clean will put you out regardless.


I wouldn't be surprised if it was first offered to Prangley but he turned it down. Jardine's just one of those guys who is willing to fight no matter what. Much respect!

I hope Keith wins. Mousasi has to many holes in his game to become an elite fighter and for some reason I really Keith. Hopefully he takes Mousasi down wears him down to either a late stoppage or UD.



What are the holes besides not being able to stop a takedown from King Mo?


I'd say Keith has way more holes in his game, with the biggest one being his complete inability to stop a left hook.

Mousasi knows how to throw one, so I favor Mousasi.

Jardine has underrated wrestling, but not good enough wrestling to take gegard down, ontop of that jardine has a soft chin that's only getting weaker every time, and mousasi is an excellent boxer. I feel the same way as the rest of the playground

Tough debut but good to see him signed by another big organization.

"The Dean Of Mean" is back talk about a tough fight to prep for espicially on like 2 weeks notice. I think Keith will beat Mousasi by decision. Most people will pick Mousasi but 2 weeks isn't enough time to prepare for a style like Jardine's. I'm glad to see Jardine back on the big stage of mma.

what are these multiple holes in gegards game people are talking about? he has the same problem 90% of european fighters seem to have in takedown defense, but other than that he is pretty slick and technical imo



ooops, i see cordless already made this same point
