I've gotten a lot of support from fans after this fight. Thank you. Thanks to all of my teammates who have helped me prepare. Matt is a real tough guy and I have a lot of respect for him. I feel that I won that fight though. I'm not whining here because you can't leave a close fight to the judges. I do think that Herb was wrong with the point deduction and too often he has too much influence in the outcome of his fights. All I can do is go back to work and that's what I'm going to do. Thanks everyone!

I felt like you won too, but what can you do? I'm sure it's disappointing because you really needed this win. They say you learn a bit from how a man wins, but you can learn everything form how one loses.

Nobody can stop you from being the best athlete you are capable of being, and with your heart, dedication, and teammates, I am afraid at what you can accomplish. A whole new level of mean.

Well even if you lost, the whole fight was super intensive, not boring for one second. Everyone will agree that this was a great fight to watch, you're definitely a winner for that. I'd rather see fighters like you, even on a loss, than guys barely engaging each others.

Fantastic fight. The fight momentum turned after the point deduction. You owned him round 1 and first part of round 2. Matt wanted nothing to do with your kicks and was loosing his ability to go for the take-down. I thought is was a super close fight that could have gone either way. The fans will want to continue to see you and you will get another shot at a significant fight. Stay committed, proud of yourself, and strong.

Fight of the night, no question.

Not that it matters, but I thought you won. The point deduction made no sense--and probably cost you that round. Still, your fast, in and out combos, crushing leg kicks, all put you ahead on points in my books.

And I say this with full respect to Mr. Hamill.

Support you all the way.

Support Albuquerque figthers, Thanks for choosing Albuquerque be the place you want to represent....and you did that proudly. Support you for all future upcoming bouts. The point deduction sucked, it wasn't intentional, at least a warning first. Plus, that pause I think messed up the momentum you had going. You still have my support....for sure!

PS-Awesome fight shorts....when and where can I buy some? To represent you while at the gym.

Dean, I love your fights but if you are going to be the belt holder one day - you need to dominate people like Matt, not win/lose close decisions.

Herb was picking up your mouthpiece when Hamill went down, didn't even see it happen. Was obviously accidental and the point deduction was ridiculous. Sorry for the loss on your record, in my eyes you did not lose, even with the BS deduction.

I was wondering if you realized or not what had happened when Hammill shot back away from you with his hand on his face, I assume so but I was waiting for you to pounce on him and maybe finished him since Herb wasn't in a position to stop the fight at that moment.

Good luck to you Keith, you are my favorite MMA fighter and I hope to see a long list of W's on your record in the near future.

Looking forward to your next fight.

Herb is one of the best, but I feel he fell down a bit on that call. Definitely not "damaging" as he said and certainly didn't need to be a deduction. He didn't even see it. To me, that was where the fight turned around. You're my favourite by far, and I hope we see you around for a long while yet!

Your style inspires me to work on my own instead of try to fix it to fit in with the rest. You help me believe in myself and give myself the encouragement to persist.

I've never seen a point deducted from an eye poke like that wtf, like am I crazy? It wasn't a bad poke at all, and your counters were way more than what he landed from what I was watching.. I dunno man I saw you win that.

Anonymous,  June 23, 2010 at 4:23 AM  

i say a lot of horrible stuff about you, but the last thing I want is to see you leave the UFC.. I could never understand why you were in the spotlight after you lost to rashad in the house and put on a piss poor performance but you have become a great fighter to watch even if you're 6-7 record in the UFC will get you cut. Good luck in your life.

Yeah I scored that fight for you Keith the deduction was ridiculous, other fighters in the UFC seem to only get warnings for deliberate stuff.

You really rung Hammill's bell a few times- not sure what was going on w/ the judges. War jardine!!

meandean June 23, 2010 at 10:50 AM  

You def. won that fight keith, and the point deduction was uncalled for. I became even more frustrated about it when I saw the WEC fights the next night. Shalorus kicked varner 3 times in the groin and only got 1 point deducted.... It's a shame to see a guy like you go on a losing streak, but you def. have my support as being one of the best light heavyweights of all time. Stay mean jardine.

You deserve to go, im sorry.

Jardine lost the fight for sure, he had his way from round 1 and lost all momentum 2mins after round 2. The fact that 90% of the fight was stand up and keith couldn't tear hamil apart shows his standup is overrated and its his unorthodox striking that confuse fighters. The point deduction was fair because of how severe it was to hamil who immediately drew back and collapsed so not sure why people are upset. Intentional or not its not suppose to happen.

Anonymous,  June 24, 2010 at 8:07 AM  

Dude, You are a class act and I love you man....That being said you def. lost the fight even without the deduction! Hamill had a staph, broken hand and still worked you at your game...Had he not had a broken hand it would have been over

Casey June 24, 2010 at 1:25 PM  

Man, this is rough. I just read Keith got let go from the UFC. Well, a lot of people are calling for him to go to DREAM but I know he could do well in Strikeforce as well. Maybe just a stint in the indepedents. I'm really sorry.

Anonymous,  June 24, 2010 at 2:48 PM  

Hi Keith,

I don't agree with Dana White (but who TF am I, granted). You've beaten some top competition, and some of the fights that you lost in the UFC were really close. I can't imagine that you won't be back.

Anyway, you're my wife's favorite fighter. I dig the combos as well (punches to the upper-left, followed by roundhouse kicks to the lower-right, like when you fought Chuck). Give a shout if you're gonna be around Orange County, NY, you're welcome for dinner/beers/a bugged out flick. :)

Cheers and Jump-Squats,

Joey T.

this sucks, thought you won that fight, hope to see you back in ufc soon, gonna miss the dean of mean!!!!!

Donnie Leverette,  June 25, 2010 at 12:20 AM  

You know what Keith... Earlier this year I took my son to meet you at the TapOut wharehouse in Grand Terrace. We waited in the rain for 7 hours to get your autograph and when there were only like 40 ppl left in line, you got up and left all your fans standing there... We are the ones who pay your salary and you couldnt just finish the line? You and Hendo left early like rockstars and look where karma has left you. Sorry man but what goes around comes around...

Boring close decisions arent going to keep you in the UFC. Everyone on here can BS but losing 6 of your last 8 isnt good enough... Good luck though.

Maybe next time you will sign for those poor kids in line...

i talk a lot of crap about you, because you're just...not good. if i decided to shut my eyes and swing randomly at forrest, there's a chance i could've done what you did. go fight kimbo in some independent fight, make your money, and then the guy who couldn't even beat kimbo. geez, i'm not going to lie, i actually feel bad for you man. i'm sorry.

DallasTX,  June 25, 2010 at 2:01 PM  

1 win out of your past 6 Fights damn bro you should of been cut along time ago seriously.. Then you want to put herb dean on blast come on the fight is on you..don't go making excuses because you suck and talk alot of crap about your apponents before the fight it all went down hill when you fought Houston so man up you suck! That's why Thiago silva pointed you out after he KO'ed you for talking all that crap Sardines.. Take a couple of years off and train in your new gym and see if you get 1% better doubt it if it dosent work out you can always pull off being a KKK leader..

J June 25, 2010 at 3:02 PM  

Keith is, and always will be the man. That point deduction WAS bullshit. I hope he takes a step back, reevaluates, and then gets back in the game. I'll watch him where ever he goes from the UFC.

Lafayette, LA,  June 25, 2010 at 5:10 PM  

For those of you who are dogging him because of his string of losses, maybe you should step into the ring with him. He gets paid to do what he loves, why are you telling him to quit?
Keith, man, you're a fun fighter to watch. I'll watch you wherever you go.

Just like the commercials.

It's so easy to beat "The Dean of Mean" Keith Jardine even a Handicap person like Matt Hamill can do it. LoL

Brian Adams,  June 27, 2010 at 9:09 PM  


Your fight with Matt Hamill was incredible to watch. It's messed up that the decision didn't go your way, Herb made a bad call and swayed the entire fight. You've never been in a boring fight though, and for this reason you are one of my favorite fighters.

Stay focused, like you always have been and I'm sure you still are.

You are one of the top fighters on our entire planet. You sir, are an upper echelon athlete. With your hard work, dedication, and focus, you will find your way to the top.

Hey Man...I can never forget the face of a man smiling when the blood from his face is dripping down to his lips!! KEEP UP THAT ATTITUDE!!!!

Anonymous,  June 29, 2010 at 8:27 PM  

Definitely thought you beat "The Hammer"; I had 2/3 rounds going your way, and the point deduction was spurious. Can't wait to see your next fight, wherever it may be.

Anonymous,  June 30, 2010 at 8:44 AM  

Hamill had surgery on Monday to repair a torn tear duct...sounds spurious to me you glib idiot.....

justin June 30, 2010 at 4:58 PM  

Hey Keith! I'm sure the cut is difficult to take but I really believe that you're going to flourish with these new opportunities on the horizon. It may sound crazy but I'm looking forward to seeing you take on some talent from outside the UFC, there's definitely some really good fights out there for you and I can't wait to see you kicking some ass again no matter where it is!

Anonymous,  July 19, 2010 at 6:45 AM  

you let a tard pack your bags and kick you out on your ass, not even a cheat poke or spit out of your shield could save you from a unanimous.

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.
