Should he win his next fight (possibly against Wanderlei Silva), Keith Jardine feels a chance at the UFC light heavyweight championship could be coming his way.
There’s a good chance (Forrest Griffin) wins the fight (with Rampage Jackson) and that means I’m in line to get the next fight,” said Jardine.
Clearly, Jardine will be rooting for Griffin in Griffin’s June title shot against Jackson. Jardine defeated Griffin via TKO in under five minutes when they first fought in December 2006. Since then, Jardine has gone 1-1. Jardine’s loss was a shocking one – a brutal first round KO at the hands of Houston Alexander, but the win was a big one – a September 2007 decision victory over Chuck Liddell.
With consecutive victories over Liddell and Silva (should the fight come about), Jardine may very well be correct in his prediction of a title shot in the Fall of 2008. The other fighters approaching number one contender status are Lyoto Machida (scheduled to face Tito Ortiz in May) and Liddell (scheduled against Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in June).
Most likely, a Liddell victory would earn the former champ a title opportunity but that would likely be held off until the big New Year’s show. That would leave Machida and Jardine as the top guys vying for the fall championship match.view original article >>
