I wasnt really too fond of Jardine at the start in TUF and never cared much for his first few fights. Slowly as I learnt more about the guy and his philosophy in fighting he started to win me over and now I realised he is just a hard working fighter who is very down to earth. I find his style exciting now and appreciate it more. He also provides entertaining Knockouts when he is on the recieving end.

And Jardine would be right.

His personality and interviews are like watching dry paint. He is a good fighter but not great or excellent. He has a proven glass jaw and is more flat footed than Rampage or Wanderlei. I don't even think he'll get past Thiago Silva who is just as aggressive and has KO Power like Houston/Wanderlei (Both KO'd The Dean of Mean).

Jardine will finish his career being a gatekeeper. Forrest would Decision him this time around.

I've hated Jardine for so long just because he made people think that Houston ever was more than a C level fighter.

One of 2007's glorious upsets.

I personally agree with Davisty. I just don't get pumped for Jardine fights. Him vs Chuck and vs Rampage I was only excited for because of Chuck and Rampage, likewise with Wandy. Jardine's fighting style is pretty boring, I don't think the UFC marketing hasn't gotten behind him because of his personality, its because he hasn't finished a fight since UFC 66.

He really is right, but like the saying goes just because you beat Tiger Woods doesn't mean you become Tiger Woods.

There was no smugness at all, the casual fan = the guy who tunes in to see KO's and doesnt really follow MMA..

Dont know why it sounded smug..

I just hate the usage of the phrase 'to the casual fan' it's really condescending. You're not a better MMA fan because you have different preferences. I prefer seeing KO's to subs and I'm not ashamed of it, I don't see why anyone else should be branded 'casual' because their opinion differs from yours.

LOL, where did this come from?

My opinion of the casual fan is my own and if you find yourself in that category there is nothing i can do for you, nor is it bad to be casual, make this what you want to make it, how could i be condescending through a forum post by mentioning the word "casual fan"

IM A CASUAL FAN OF RUGBY LEAGUE... because i dont tune in to every game.

My opinion of a casual fan is indeed a person who occasionally tunes in to watch an event, no smugness or bad intent at all in this observation, i feel the smugness is how you react when hearing this phrase which somehow offends you?

And where did i say i was "better" than anyone?..

Please grow up.

Uh, it might have to do with the fact that he's lost three of his last five fights.

A lot of guys would give an arm and a leg to get the career-rocketing level of fights the UFC has given him -- Chuck, Quinton, Vera, Wanderlei, Griffin etal.

In fact, despite his mediocrity, he keeps getting solid and career boosting fights.

I have no doubt that he's getting subbed in his next fight, maybe then he'll start understanding why he's not yet had a title shot. Visually, he's the most marketable guy with the kilt wearing Scottish Viking look() and has a slick nickname in "The Dean Of Mean". His mediocrity is the problem.

Well its just the way you grouped the 'liking/preferring of KO's' and the 'doesn't really follow MMA' that annoyed me. I'm just saying, you don't need to be so smug about grouping yourself into the 'true MMA' fan because you prefer something different. For me, a 'casual fan' has nothing to do with preference of fights finishing or opinions on anything. A casual fan is someone, like you said, who watches MMA/NRL casually, or occasionally. It just annoys me when people call others 'casual fans' for liking something different.
