Isn't having a good head and being able to control your emotions part of what makes a champion fighter?
Personally I don't care for Jardine, I think he is WAY to cocky; before his Wanderlei fight he was saying "after I beat Silva I want my spot in MMA history." Not to discount Liddell and Griffin but what else has Jardine really done? If he wasn't in Jackson's camp he would be a sorry silly monkey fighter, and I know fighters have to be confident but they can also be humble, respectful, and appreciative of their trainers and those who help them come up with game plans. I would like to see him fight Anderson Silva so we can see how skilled he really is!
he's also beaten wilson gouevaia....who was a top LHW before he got tko'd to 185....great fight btw
he also lost to stephan bonnar in one of the worst judged fights in ufc history...jardine beat bonnar by most fans judgement
mike whitehead was highly touted as well...and jardine defended his td's and won a decision...
