A lot of people are asking me what I'm doing in the Vancouver area. I was scheduled to fight in the Dominican Republic on Nov 13th. Then I was going to do a movie "Hangar 14" right after. Well because of Hurricane Tomas hitting the island the fight was moved to Dec 10th. So now I have to do my last few weeks of training at "Zuma" in Victoria while filming the movie. Its working out well though. The guys at Zuma are really taking care of me.

Shark Fights 13

Tuesday, September 14, 2010

I hate sending these post fight messages but they do help me get past the fight. I've been going through a real rough patch lately. I've experienced a lot of misfortune and bad luck. Its not an excuse. It just is what it is.
I'm sure that loosing a split decision will delay me getting back to the UFC but I am remaining positive. For now, I'm going to take a week off of the gym and then get back to work. I'm exited to fight again asap.
Most of all, though, I want to thank all of the people that tuned in to watch me fight. I hope that everyone enjoyed the show. For me, having good fights have always been more important than wins and losses.

My objective in fighting is to fight the best fighters in the world. Also, my goal is to one day fight for the UFC light heavyweight title. On sept 11th I will take my first step toward that goal. Shark fights have given me the opportunity to restart my career on ppv. I will be fighting Trevor Prangley who is a tough and gritty fighter with a good record. I've been following his career for a long time and it will be an honor to fight him.
Thank you Shark Fights for this opportunity. I'm very excited and even more hungry. Leaving the UFC as I did has left a bad taste in my mouth. Also, thank you to everyone who has supported me.

About This Blog

I was born in Butte, Montana.
A proud town known for its hard nosed rough sort of people. From there, I moved to a small town in Central Oregon where I spent a number of years before moving to Southern California. This is where I went to Canoga Park High School and then LA pierce Junior College.

I spent my last two years of college football at a division II school in Las Vegas New Mexico called New Mexico Highlands University. I finished playing football there and then coached for a few years when I met a guy teaching mma at the local rec. center. I was sold right away and drove to Albuquerque to meet Greg Jackson, who was already well known in the area. I then decided to move to Albuquerque to train with him. That was in 2000 and I have been here every since.

I got my big break in 2005 when, after my training partner Diego Sanchez did so well on The Ultimate Fighter season 1 where I got the opportunity to be on the second season of the show. Although I didn't win, I learned a lot from both Rich Franklin and my training partners while at the same time developing lifelong friendships. The show was great for my career, and has given me the opportunity to become a full time fighter and to progress to where I am today.

I have had 11 fights now in the UFC and I am currently regarded as one of the best fighters in the world.

- Keith Jardine
