An Interview With UFC 78’s Jason Reinhardt: Owner of MMA’s Best Career Record
For a guy with a perfect 18-0 record, Jason Reinhardt’s road to a UFC debut wasn’t without a few bumps. The MMA fighter and teacher had garnered the attention of the UFC after years of success in the Midwest and throughout the U.S., but when it came to casting for the “The Ultimate Fighter 5,” Reinhardt made it only to the final 18; just 16 fighters, of course, were chosen for the show.

Not all Pride fighters struggle in the UFC
“I have no idea why some are struggling to adjust. With Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, he just made one mistake and ran into Heath Herring’s leg. That is a big leg so it is going to take some steam out of you. Nog recovered well and I think that other than that kick he dominated the rest of the fight. At the same time Quinton Jackson and Anderson Sylva in my eyes are PRIDE fighters. So you could say that PRIDE owns two belts in the UFC right now. Both of those guys fought almost all their fights and made their name in PRIDE. They are PRIDE fighters. It is easy to throw a UFC label on Jackson because he is American. He only fought one fight in the cage with WFA before he went to the UFC.”

Thats really weird cos Jensen was heavily rumored to be replacing Eastman to fight Meia, though they make no mention its the FULL card on ufc.com like they say here so i expect that fight TBA as a prelim as well Its surprising the Okami Macdonald fight isnt main card, even tho im sure it will be boring its between 2 top MW's whilst the Bonnar Schafer fight isvery far down the list and pretty unexciting to me
