He seems like a really laid back, calm, humble guy. I think you guys are taking his comments a diff way. All fighters have to be confident. What fighter wouldnt want to or think they were getting closer to perfection. It's a fine line bw arrogance and confidence but I think Jardine is on the confident side.
I also think Jardine is like a Houston Alexander. He has a couple of big wins, but will lose the next couple of fights against better opponents. I think this next fight against vera will tell all.
