Seems like his chin is either having a good night or a bad night and thats what decides the outcome.
It looked like Thiago barely even clipped him and he went down like a sack of spuds. Its the shot to the chin when he is on his back that always seems to be the one to put him out though.

The reality is this, Jardine has a weak chin and is not hard to hit, therefore he gets KO'd by guys with goiod power.

On the plus side Thiago looked excellent, he has great finishing ability and the best GnP at LHW IMO.

man so of the ppl in this thread are just fans of knockouts of ppl I mean Jardine has a track record of being great and being bad we all know that but after the knockouts that he has sufferd lately Im just saying he might be out the door because it seems like his chin is getting weaker in every fight and i take my hat off to him this man has fought nothing but top 10 rankings but as prove he is not in their league anymore! "What is he gonna do go to Greg Jackson and practice on taking a punch, its not going to happen folks"

I give it a 60% chance that he goes to Strikeforce by the end of the year.
Honestly I think it would be better for him, they would pay him more than the UFC will be willing to and his fights would be more competitive.

Alot of the comments seem to be regards Jardine. Personally, this fight was all about Silva. Theres nothing wrong with Jardine. He's a tough lump thats for sure and I've learned nothing new about him. But Silva surprised me. I think this boy is much better that I thought before and now feel a bit foolish for dismissing him so flippantly after he got Lyoto'd. Apart from Machida, this lad can cause serious damage in the division.

hi there. first post since the fight.
i totally agree with you.
silva looked impressive: relaxed, composed, calm. axactly the oposite he looked in the fight against machida, when he tried to control the fight and be the agressor. it showed in the way he acted when he dropped jardine: he didn't rush like a mad man to finnish keith.

i like jardine and i think he is improving every time he shows up in the ufc.
but his "unorthodox-weird" style everyone is talking about, is starting to work against him.
he needs to fight smarter. he is a brawler, "in your face guy", but he's got to keep those hands higher, because he has almost no chin.
wandy and thiago made him pay badly.

.



BELIEVE!

I wanted The Dean Of Mean to win

Got to hand it to Thiago though, he looked good that night and showed some noticable improvements.

Why Do We Fall?

i agree about thiago improving. he was much more calm and composed than in recent fights. he just sat back relaxed and waited for an opening. and he sure did find it too.
